Management consultancy Lean Focus LLC has officially opened its Lean Transformation Academy and Corporate Headquarters in Madison, Wisconsin. The facility is 5,000-square-feet and will offer trainings and workshops for companies seeking to streamline their operations via the Lean Focus method.

The decision to establish the new headquarters and transformation academy in Madison was based on its central location in the United States, as well as its promising future: the city ranks first in population concentration of American millennial workers and second in employment outlook. It is also fifth on the list of 100 largest metro areas for advanced industry input in 2016. Additionally, Inc. Magazine in 2018 placed Madison in the top 10 cities for young entrepreneurs.

"As a native Wisconsinite, I am honored and proud to call Madison, Wisconsin the home for our headquarters,” Damon Baker, Lean Focus CEO, said. “It is an amazing time to be a part of this great community and to take an active part in the rapid economic expansion and thriving start-up culture going on here."

Lean Focus has been in operation for four years. It utilizes the “Lean Focus Business System,” which leverages five elements – growth, lean, leadership, foundation, and guiding principles – that enable its clients to create ways of doing business that are more efficient and effective. 

"The Lean Transformation Academy will provide our current and prospective clients another service delivery option aimed at developing the talent within their organizations by making available our proprietary business system tools and processes," Baker said.  "In addition to our world-class course curriculum, Lean Transformation Academy participants will have direct, hands-on instruction from former top-level executives of highly-respected, lean pedigreed, Fortune 200 organizations with long track records of outperformance against their peers."

"If our clients were to build a similar capability on their own, it could take a decade," Baker said. "We help them dramatically accelerate that process."
