Several residents have completed Lean Basics offered at the City of Fort Collins.  Nick Fahey, Process Improvement Projects Manager for CBW Automation had this to say after the class:

“The Lean Basics Class provided by FC Lean was very helpful for our organization by supplying us with some simple and valuable tools to help us look at some of our complex problems in a different way.  The class was informative, and Matt and Kirsten did a great job in keeping the class engaging and fun.  I would recommend the class to any organization that is curious about Lean, and is interested in beginning their own lean journey.”
