About The Oobeya Group
The Oobeya Group helps organizations understand and put to practice advanced management and development techniques ranging from TQM to Agile to Lean. We are passionate about improvement and have experienced the range of approaches to organizational transition. These include up front methods such as ISO and CMM and adaptive methods that we now call Agile.
Transcending either of these approaches and the spectrum in between is the necessity to view organizations, teams, individuals, markets, projects and processes as ongoing flows, not static things or events. Maintaining this perspective and focusing on learning and adapting continuously will compensate for the weaknesses of either a pure predictive or pure adaptive approach. Our services have been developed to assist organizations when making the difficult transition to successfully use these principles and practices.
The Oobeya Group is led by founder Lowell Lindstrom and includes a network of talented specialists. We combine to provide you the most efficient service team.
