LSI works with some of the largest firms
Did you know that while LSI enjoys working with local, family-owned or privately-owned businesses (our "favorite clients"), it is exciting to have opportunities to work with fortune 500 companies because they bring a different level of complexity and challenges.
LSI has worked with such companies as Johnson & Johnson, CP Rail, United Airlines, Canadian Mint, Bridgestone, Canadian Government, Van City, Weyerhauser, Hitachi, DHL, and Medtronics, to name some of the larger companies that we had the fortune to work with.
Some recent quotes by fortune 500 companies:
"LSI is the best, even when compared to some of the largest consulting firms that perform lean and process improvements"
"Lean Sensei's methodologies are superior to anything we have seen."
"LSI is so different in their approach, it's impossible to explain it. You just have to experience it."
