Our work with LEAN Frog has continually improved our system’s effectiveness and efficiency. Their understanding of instructional and non-instructional requirements, community dynamics, best practices, and practical solutions have been a tremendous help in the formation and implementation of our system’s strategic plan. Their facilitation of the planning process and stakeholder engagement was professional, timely, and exactly what we needed to move us toward our goals. They have worked shoulder to shoulder with my staff at all levels to ensure improvements are well-understood and sustainable.
