Percipiant Creates Lean Innovators and Problem Solvers
Why I Started Percipiant
Since childhood, I’ve had a passion for problem solving. I’ve always loved “hacking” processes and systems to make them better. From the time I disassembled my first calculator at age 12 to “see how it works inside”, I’ve never lost the desire to break down complex systems and improve upon them.
I’m so grateful that I found a career that would allow me to do that and get paid for it.
Unfortunately, during my career in Corporate America, I’ve seen the reputation of Continuous Improvement, Lean and Six Sigma tainted by reckless deployment, overzealous outside consultants, and really bad instructors.
At the risk of sounding full of myself, I believed I could to it better — so I formed Percipiant.
Percipiant is based on the Latin word “percipio”, which means “to learn, to understand, to take on”. I believe this reflects a common sense approach to Continuous Improvement: learn the tools, understand the customer/problem, then take it on.
If this sounds like it makes sense to you, I’m ready to help you on your Process Excellence journey.
