Think of this as a real road trip - a journey through the world of continuous process improvement. The road trip can be fun and filled with purpose. It can be life-changing and paradigm-shifting, but it can also be painful.

You can be an active participant or a “passenger,” you can make this trip alone or you can find others to travel with you. Having companions enriches your experience, and you get to use the carpool lanes!

Like most road trips, there’s a roadmap but that’s no guarantee against travel mishaps. You might get stuck behind a Winnebago for a while, hit a pothole, get a parking ticket or have a surprise run-in with the police!

We’ll provide roadside assistance and help you navigate the detours. You and your companions can sight-see if things look interesting, or you might need a pit stop to refresh at the Bahama Bistro.

The Bistro team will be with you every step of the way with helpful examples, enlightening infographics and of course, the occasional snack. 


Elisabeth Swan, Tracy O'Rourke The Problem-Solver's Toolkit: A Surprisingly Simple Guide to Your Lean Six Sigma Journey
