"The greatest benefit to Cleveland Steel Tool has been spreading the gospel of Lean and 5S past the senior management level, to allow foremen and machine operators to hear from their peers about the benefits of the process. Sharing ideas within a controlled environment is a far superior learning technique than internet videos or classroom pedagogues."

Mark Dawson, President, Cleveland Steel Tool Co.
