About Paul Akers

Paul Akers is an entrepreneur, business owner, author, speaker and lean maniac. His company, FastCap, has a catalog of more than 600 woodworking products with more than 3000 distributors in 40 countries. He credits the astounding business growth to a fun, dynamic culture in which each of the employees puts into practice at least one two-second improvement per day. Akers developed that culture by hiring the right people, relentlessly teaching and reinforcing the eight wastes in a daily morning meeting, and empowering people to experiment and fail. He believes that until you and your employees see waste in everything that you do, you won’t understand lean.
