Fun, Sun, and Team One
CLN Members came together for networking, food, and fun at our CLN Picnic on June 15th. We had a great time learning about each other’s passions with Lean, exchanging business cards for future partnerships, and participating in the Marshmallow Challenge!
Thank you to those who donated to cover our picnic pavilion rental fee. A big thank you to Chad Anderson for serving as our grill-master. And thank you to Jamie V. Parker and Process + Results Leadership Coaching for sponsoring all of the food and supply costs for the picnic. Be sure to head on over to the Process + Results Blog and sign up on the right side of the page for future articles, resources, and webinar invites from our Picnic Sponsor.

Mike began his improvement journey in the late 1990’s using Kanban cards and production boards to reduce waste in the restaurant industry. In 2005 he joined Caterpillar, Inc. where he learned how to integrate process improvement with Six Sigma to increase heavy equipment sales in two Colorado territories.
With a passion for education, Mike later began teaching folks how to use these simple principles themselves--first in the private sector (2009), and then later in the public sector (2012). Mike is the Senior Manager of Continuous Improvement at Denver International Airport and he previously served as the executive director for the Colorado Lean Network from 2017 - 2020.
Mike loves learning about what drives people to improve processes while teaching them how to think differently. When he is not facilitating process improvements, Mike enjoys hiking, snowshoeing, biking and traveling with his wonderful wife, Melissa.
