What differentiates FTE from other Lean Consulting firms is their flexibility and adaptability. They were willing to adjust their approaches based on our unique culture and context. This was crucial as we had to make numerous pivots along our journey and some of them required significant adjustments from FTEs normal approach. Another key differentiator is their ability to both teach and coach, which are very different things. Our company did not have much experience with lean. FTE helped us early on with teaching and instruction, but transitioned well into coaching us as we progressed. Within two years, we were completely able run our lean transformation ourselves.
