Strategic Solutions conducted Lean training for Sunoco Logistics (SXL), an Oil and Gas Pipeline and Terminal business based out of Philadelphia, PA in 2015. The instructor, Karen Brodbeck, provided more than classroom lectures. Her engaging and coaching style imparted new information about Lean. Each day of training was filled with hands on applications which enforced principles such as Push vs Pull, Improve the Flow, Root Cause Analysis, Mistake Proofing, Process Mapping, Waste Identification and much more. With Karen’s guidance and SXL’s employee development focus, 95 geographically dispersed employees from multiple states, completed three day Lean training sessions in one year. Students shared how great is was to have new tools, expanding and sharpening their process improvement work skills. The company, SXL, broaden it’s “problem solving” base, exposing and equipping more employees to “examine how to get the waste out.” The Lean Management Team of SXL is very grateful for Karen’s support.– Carlos Bohanon – Sunoco Logistics (SXL)
The value of the Black Belt has been really apparent. I am starting to get calls. Thanks again for all of your help and mentoring. I really appreciate it.– Jim D., a former displaced worker
Thanks again for all your efforts in helping to bring Lean to (our company). We thoroughly enjoyed the training and are assured of it’s positive effect on the future.– Dayton, Ohio area Quality Manager
It is amazing to me, because I look at so many things differently now. I think so much differently now. I already have seen impacts in several areas of my life just using the tools I have learned. That has made this class so worthwhile to me…thanks.
Karen gave such great practical examples to make difficult and abstract concepts so much easier for me to understand.
The service you provided was great! You actually answered your phone, and returned my calls.
