Welcome to your online home for the Lean Systems Society (LSS): The worldwide community of Lean Systems thinkers! The Society is a non-profit organization focused on improving the world by improving its systems. That’s a huge goal…it can only be accomplished by combining the best work of the world’s leading systems thinkers. Many of these thinkers are now Fellows of the LSS.
