Leading2Lean was created on a factory floor. The entire leadership team and many others in the company have firsthand experience working in and leading manufacturing environments. Our software solution is sold only to manufacturers.

It’s safe to say that manufacturing is in our blood.

Not a day goes by where the media does not report on manufacturing talent shortages in all verticals and across in the country.  The reasons are many, but one is that manufacturing is often misunderstood by the job seeking public. Gone are the days on unfulfilling work in a gloomy workplace.  Instead, manufacturing careers require technical, problem-solving and communications skills in order to be successful in a competitive and complex environment.
