Lean A-to-Z, Inc. is Alexei Zheglov's management training, consulting, and coaching firm.

Based in Waterloo, Ontario, Canada, we have customers across North America and Europe and on three more continents. They represent many different industries.

We help modern intellectual businesses.

Many companies employ many educated workers who think for a living to deliver complex products and professional services to their customers.

Managing the risk and flow of such work is inherently difficult. That's where we come in.


I Teach Kanban!

I teach the full spectrum of Kanban - Alternative Path to Agility management training as a Lean Kanban University accredited trainer (AKT).

I Also Teach ESP

Enterprise Services Planning (ESP) - a program focusing on strategy, risk, product and project portfolios, and long-term success of enterprises.

KCP Masterclass

Kanban Coaching Professional (KCP) Masterclass is about leadership and how to be an effective change agent in a complex enterprise. The deepest part of the Kanban method knowledge.

Consulting & Coaching

My approach is to deliver advice in small batches and maintain clients' independence at all times.

I visit client companies, we review progress and new challenges and solve some problems together. I provide appropriate guidance.

When such guidance exists in a stable form, training is often the most effective way to deliver it to a group of client company's managers and staff.

I don't do six-month embedded coaching engagements as they contradict the principles above.

Writing & Speaking

I'm a co-author of a new book: Fit-for-Purpose: How Modern Enterprises Find, Satisfy & Keep Customers.

I'd be happy to speak on this subject at your conference or a local professional group.
