Lean Process Specialist Alan Matt has over thirty-five years experience in a variety of management roles, from operations and supervision to safety and Lean, in industries spanning manufacturing, construction, and forestry.
Alan’s passion for building strong corporate cultures and implementing efficiency improvements led to him earning his Lean Black Belt certification in 2018. He continues his dedication to studying and practicing Lean, and visited Japan to witness the procedures in action at world-class Lean facilities including Toyota, Mitsubishi, and Nissan.
Alan has a strong background and understanding in loss causation and workplace safety, with an OHS Certificate from the University of Alberta.
Alan considers himself a coach rather than a manager and is passionate while encouraging teams to utilize their skills and knowledge to improve workplace organization, efficiencies, safety, and standards.
In his free time Alan can be found on his farm in Saskatchewan, working on one of his many projects. He enjoys spending time with family and taking on his favorite summer challenge - finding ways to improve his golf game.
