GENEO has built a great team of Lean consultants to work alongside our agile software team. We are focused on building the best Continuous Improvement platform for our clients. Whether you are looking for a light touch training program or a complete transformation, GENEO is here to help.

We recognize that Lean consulting is about culture and people, so we put our people at the heart of everything. GENEO has applied the Lean principles to every aspect of our business. We used the agile approach for software development, meeting our ISO9000 standard goals.

Our experience spans two decades of hands-on Lean implementation, starting with the founders of GENEO Software: Mark Radley and Tim King. GENEO's Lean consulting team has experience across heavy industries, mining, aviation, automotive, pharmaceutical, medical devices, and logistics. Our tacit knowledge has helped build a suite of software applications made with the Lean customer in mind.  

Our software team has built the best enterprise system for standardized work (also known as work instructions) and is supporting companies with their continuous improvement journey. And in 2019, we successfully launched two new platforms to help Lean leaders in the field optimize their continuous improvement activities.
