Lean Fox Solutions, LLC

Lean Fox Solutions is a value added provider of Lean and Change Management experts that help healthcare organizations improve the patient experience across the continuum of care, while providing a positive return on investment. Based in Southeast Michigan, we have been leading Lean transformations for clients based in Canada and the U.S since 2008.

At LFS we realize that all clients’ needs are unique and one size doesn’t fit all. We work with our client’s to ensure the best outcome available is achieved. The Lean journey is similar to the treatment of a patient. As the treatment of the patient is individually tailored, Lean must also be tailored specifically to your hospital or your physician practice.

Our mission is to teach, mentor and facilitate process improvement activities in a systematic approach that will link projects (and resources) to strategic goals and objectives.


What our Clients Say
“Along with improving our patient throughput, we also saw a cultural change in our practice. As the staff and physicians began understanding the importance of lean, they became more involved in improving the patient experience. The changes the team developed made our work easier and the result was better patient care.”
– Dr. Stephen Mendelson, Orthopedic Surgeon

Todd really came through for us. He is an engaging speaker who really knows his stuff! I hope to be able to work with him again. He’s a delight!
– Carla Anglehart, Director, Organizational Development, Nova Scotia Association of Health Organizations

“Todd facilitated the deployment of Lean across our main Lab. His leadership during the Lean events and subsequent follow up ensured we sustained the gains in throughput and cost reductions. He helped pioneer Lean thinking throughout our organization.”
– Bill Mott, VP, St. John Providence Health System

Our Team
Our leadership team includes Todd Sperl, Andrea Sperl and Jayant Trewn. Our Advisory Board is a network of health care experts who have agreed to advise our Lean Coaches and Senseis in its strategic decision-making process and day-to-day work. Their abilities, experience, and knowledge were selected for how they complement a particular Lean Fox project, or the organization as a whole. Sometimes questions will be posed to the whole group, sometimes individual members will be consulted.
