“Think K. Dolphin” Has 13 years experience and is looking for a new role as a Lean Transformation Coach and Facilitator in Seattle, WA or Remote.

I work with people at every level of organizations in knowledge work and service work—large and small, corporate and government—to develop a culture of continuous improvement. My first touch with a group is to organize them around fixing their biggest performance problems directly and promptly. The goal is that, after I leave, systems and habits for continuous improvement we've practiced together become routine.
