Lean Blog Interviews — 362: Adam Lawrence on Kaizen Events & The Wheel of Sustainability



My guest for Episode #362 is Adam Lawrence, managing partner with Process Improvement Partners LLC.


He’s an industrial engineer who had a long career working with TQM, Six Sigma, and Lean at Thomasvile Furniture and other Armstrong World Industries companies.


Today, we’ll talk about setting kaizen events up for success with effective charter documents and team selection. What’s the role of leadership? Adam will also talk about the “wheel of sustainability” (scroll down for an image and a PDF that he provided).


Adam will also mention a free virtual workshop that he’s doing on Monday, April 6th. It was supposed to be done in person at a conference… but given the current circumstances, he’s trying to make lemons into lemonade and I appreciate that he’s offering up that opportunity for folks.
