Jean Cunningham,

Coach, ex CFO, Author and Academy of Lean Enterprise Institute, USA

Through the 90's, Jean created a Lean Business Management environment in her company with great results and much acclaim. Being a CFO who loved to roam the manufacturing floor, provided her breakthrough insights into how finance, HR, IT, marketing, and other "office" functions can and should provide value add services throughout the enterprise that mesh with the goals for customers and products. Jean is focused on Lean Business Management which concerns non-operations functions. Though there are dependencies and associations with operations in manufacturing, services, and hospitals that cause significant crossover Jean's work is applicable to all organisations that require a support function.

Jean's experiments and experiences are now distilled into a "best practices" set of services honed by her industry experience and 10 years of consulting with a wide variety of manufacturing, service, and healthcare firms and we look forward to Jean showing you how you can apply these same "Lean Beyond Manufacturing" techniques in your own organisation.
