Lucidchart: An Essential Tool for Implementing Lean Six Sigma at Yoder Lumber

The times they are a-changin’, especially when it comes to quality and speed that customers demand from manufacturers, retailers, and other businesses.

The pace of life is slower for the Amish, yet it remains a diverse community filled with innovative and hardworking people, known for their exceptional skills in hand craftsmanship.…



Have you ever gone to the grocery store and there was absolutely no one in line for the checkout when you went into the store, a long line magically forms the instant you begin moving towards the checkout counter?
