"As a seasoned Lean Professional for over 20 years, I recently had the pleasure to partner with BeehiveFund to work on several Strategic/Transformational business initiatives. Our business partnered with BeehiveFund in order to complement our business transformation efforts. The introduction of Quantum Lean was truly a breath of fresh air. Utilizing the Product Path Diagram (PPD) approach is definitely a game-changer that not only engages leadership, but most importantly, it engages, empowers, and drives tangible improvements at the Gemba. I have had the privilege to not only read about the approach, but also to work with Dr. Michael Sanders and his team in implementing the approach. Their ability to seamlessly tie in leadership’s goals to practical operational tasks on the shop floor is phenomenal. Focusing on Product is powerful!! Combine that with transforming Enterprise Culture with Quantum Lean; this is truly what has been missing!! Highly recommend!"

"Bently Nevada, a Baker Hughes business, began working with BeehiveFund in 2021. Dr. Michael Sanders and Dr. Sanju Patro helped Bently Nevada implement Quantum Lean and a product focused Lean approach. Through the application of Quantum Lean principles and product path improvements, Bently Nevada acheived a dramatic improvement in our Lean Culture across the entire enterprise which resulted in multiple production records. I would highly recommend any company, no matter where you are in your Lean journey, to engage with BeehiveFund. "

Since then, BeehiveFund has provided insights into developing additional earned income streams, capacity metrics, and marketing support. Additionally, BeehiveFund has supported entrepreneurs in the Connect Community network through classes, coaching, and connections to resources. We are immensely grateful to BeehiveFund for all their assistance. "

"We are a small business and thought we had done practically everything possible to max out our operations. As it turned out, BeehiveFund showed us how much more we could achieve through their Quantum Lean system and techniques . On top of that, they helped us get with every step of the way by directly implementing changes with us side-by-side. Their concept of safer, better, faster, and more profit fits with us very strongly as in “we can have our cake and eat it too.” They give and live their guidance with deep humility and pleasure. We now have much better operations due to BeehiveFund’s work on facility layout, operations improvements, and inventory control. We look forward to a long-term relationship with BeehiveFund and the results it will bring! If you are in the market to improve, hire them! "
