Finding the Lean way together!


Join the some 3,000+ public servants across Canada who have attended Lean workshops offered by Alpen Path Solutions since March 2015. Alpen Path Solutions created the Certificate in Lean for the Public Sector in late summer 2015 with 4 of the Lean courses above, taught since March 2015.

France Bergeron (BTh, MSc), Lean coach at Alpen Path Solutions Inc., brings 21 years of public sector experience and years of Lean leadership within a line department to help you live Lean in your government organisation. Joanne Gaudet (BSc, BA, MA), Lean coach at Alpen Path Solutions Inc., brings her expertise in science studies to the successful deployment of Lean as an applied collaborative science. Enlist empirical science in your work every day.


Lean is the science of work: see work (by using visual tools/management to see flow and what disrupts flow of value to clients such as maps or ‘kanban’, because in science you can’t measure what you can’t see), measure work (the simplest and most widely used measures are time and quality) and improve work every day (by collaboratively optimizing the flow of value to clients to make flow faster, easier and cheaper).
