Thursday, Oct. 29 Location Code
11:15am-12:15pm Virtual ThS/18



LeanCor has spent the last 15 years applying a cultural transformation framework through its growth as a recognized leader in end-to-end supply chain solutions. See how these gears come together to deliver higher customer value and more meaningful work for team members:

  • Transformation alignment
  • Leadership participation
  • Team member effectiveness
  • Process management

This presentation includes a virtual “go see” tour of LeanCor’s Logistics Control Tower with people, processes and technology.


Robert Martichenko founded the LeanCor Supply Chain Group with a mission to advance the world’s supply chains through lean principles. He realized that in order to execute sustainable logistics operations for manufacturers and retailers, LeanCor had to help organizations fix processes and develop people within cultures of continuous improvement. To facilitate this culture for external customers, LeanCor had to build this culture from within — to not just “talk the talk,” but “walk the walk.”

Through three integrated solutions, LeanCor Logistics, LeanCor Consulting, and LeanCor Training and Education, it specializes in lean principles to help businesses better serve their customers by eliminating waste, decreasing costs and building cultures of continuous improvement.
