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. Others are developing the skills they need to make an impact in their workplace, and may one day become Fellows. We make introductions for all who value this kind of creative conversation. Then we facilitate their collaboration and experimentation. Finally, we help them disseminate their findings. Join with us in our mission to improve the world by improving its systems!
