INTRODUCTION TO THE MODEL
WORK PROCESS DESIGN
STANDARD FOLLOW UP
“Own the Gap”, lays out a clear picture of the gap that exists between the desired results of Lean and the true means by which those results are achieved. The book teaches in a simple and systematic way how to develop a team-based daily kaizen culture, and reminds you to have fun while doing it. By teaching how to build a culture that respects, values, and empowers the people and teams throughout an organization, readers will learn how to realize the true potential of their teams and organizations. Martyn and Crowell got it right with this book.”
“Getting sustained results from change initiatives can be challenging and this is one of the best books I have read on improving your organization. The authors provide a common-sense approach and the systems needed for driving real and sustainable improvement. The process of identifying, understanding and closing the gap not only makes sense but has been proven to produce amazing results. The four key systems outlined in “Own the Gap” would be applicable for any business size in any sector of the economy.”
“My library is full of interesting books on leadership and management, crammed with theoretical knowledge. Yet the one which I choose to keep by my side is “Own the Gap.” Martyn and Crowell, present a well-organized, closed-loop model that works; we are living proof that the Four Key Systems can be readily learned and deployed across a wide variety of industries and functions. Though we are early in our Lean journey, our focus is better, our goals are clearer, and our results are strengthening our commitment to this framework.

Frequently Asked Questions
Are the online courses as effective as face to face instruction?

Is there a recommended sequence to the courses?
We recommend you proceed from Understanding our Model (review of the book) to the Learn the Principles course and finish with Design the Systems (focused on implementation).
How long will the courses take?
As these courses are highly interactive and full of exercises and implementation assignments, the time it takes to complete each course will depend upon the speed of your execution. Generally speaking, we have designed the courses to be finished in 90 days.

The online program is self-paced allowing you to start and stop whenever you want and for any length of time you need.
