Our purpose: Working towards a world where organizations are managed with collaborative science. Creating creative, innovative and enjoyable workplaces.
We have adapted Lean for office, service and government. We participated in a Japan Lean Study Tour, including a visit at Toyota Lexus, to deepen our understanding of Lean based on the Toyota Production System (TPS). We developed a Lean as science curriculum. We co-authored Lean: Manage work as a flow system, 3rd edition. View the Book Trailer. We co-authored the paper “Lean: it’s not rocket science, it’s work science“. Subscribe to our YouTube Channel. Follow Alpen Path Solutions on LinkedIn.
We are socially responsible and practice it every day:
- we maintain low prices that ensure value for clients (and for the ultimate clients of government, taxpayers)
- we develop Lean capacity in organizations and instill a scientific culture of self-improvement
- we help build a Lean Community of Practice
- we foster continuous improvement and Lean networking and sponsor Lean Professional Development Days

Fluently bilingual, Joanne has over twelve years of experience in change management. She combines work experience in post-secondary institutions, in consulting and as a business owner with graduate research in science studies. Her Lean experience includes co-facilitating Lean for government events and helping train hundreds of public servants in the Nation’s Capital and in regional offices. She co-authored the Lean: Manage work as a flow system 3rd edition book, the Lean for Government Champion’s Handbook: Launching and ensuring success for your Lean for government project and the paper “Lean: it’s not rocket science, it’s work science“. She developed the social network analysis Mobilization-Network approach to capture deep knowledge mobilization and ignorance mobilization for individual research laboratories and academic organizations and networks. She has delivered social network analysis workshops to graduate students and university professors. She has also developed and published on the ignorance mobilization concept that acknowledges the dynamic relationship between knowledge and ignorance in science. This is especially pertinent for Lean that is based on a scientific approach to problem solving. See her book chapter on ignorance in science policymaking and science evaluation. Participated in a Japan Lean Study Tour to deepen her understanding of Lean as the science of flow in the workplace.
