Jamie V. Parker

Jamie V. Parker helps organizations build Lean culture through everyday leadership. With 17 years of multi-unit operations management, Jamie specializes in working with Operations leadership teams who’ve had some targeted success with Lean, but haven’t yet built the everybody-everywhere-everday improvement culture they crave.

Through strategic planning, training, mentoring, and implementation support, Jamie helps operations leaders spark improvement behaviors, generate engagement and commitment, and develop problem solvers – while still getting their day job done.

Jamie LOVES a great murder mystery and has honed her knack for helping operations leaders connect the dots of beliefs, behaviors, and systems – just like her favorite crime show detectives and their red-string murder boards.

Don't let the daily grind or the business-as-usual leadership gap stop you from building the Lean culture you know your team deserves.
