Value Stream mapping deployment and training

How do we know Joe?

Joe Sabo is a Master Black Belt and industry veteran of 40+ years. We grew to know Joe very well as he took on the role of technical and deployment leader for eVSM at CAT during his last 5 years before his retirement in late 2015. He drove technical functionality in eVSM, established long-term strategy, and worked with us to create outstanding deployment materials. He was consistently hands-on with the product and always provided thoughtful suggestions for improvements. Our relationship started when he represented our largest customer..

Over time, it has evolved to one where his character, experience, hard work, and integrity really make him a mentor for our entire group. Unsurprisingly for us all, since his "retirement", Joe is working as hard as ever in lean consulting roles across the globe. He continues to guide us as we enhance our product to serve the lean community. Joe was the first to review and provide detailed feedback on the manufacturing mapping "skill" in our new eLearning certification module, eLeanor, and has helped enhance the training materials throughout their development. We are proud of his friendship and value his guidance of our group.
