David’s expertise in continuous improvement methodologies and application has allowed him to work extensively at integrating relevant and impactful quality/lean principles into broader organizational change efforts that align with overall business strategies.

Combined with his organizational design expertise, David evaluates individual and team strengths and vulnerabilities using a specialized temperament assessment process called The Four Lenses. He then provides the tools and methods to help individuals translate their temperament preferences into efficiency models.
