What our customers say about us!

“We have found that the leaders that were involved in the original MTN lean workshops are more motivated and driven to continue using lean processes in their everyday work. Not only did it empower our employees to engage early and often with our constituents but it has resulted in considerable financial savings by refocusing priorities and averting costly, unnecessary projects."

Kelly McAdoo - Assistant City Manager/Chief Operating Officer City of Hayward

“The learning was fast and hands on. It was both exhausting and exhilarating. At the end of the three day session, our team was far more informed and capable of employing the lean startup process. Everyone was impressed with how much was learned and how valuable the experience was.”

Todd Demonte - Therma Stor President

“I would recommend [LEAP] to anyone interested in learning lean startup, and what it can do for you and your organization.”

Be prepared for really high-energy people who are going to push your teams quickly over the term of the engagement.”

NPO: I am not easy to please when it comes to professional development--I've been through quite a few trainings over the years.  In my 18 years in education experience, this rises to the level of one of the best professional development sessions I've ever been through.  Everything was so well paced, practical, useful, and real.  Most importantly, this will have a measurable and tangible ROI for my team and me.
