Train your company’s leaders to run successful business improvement projects.

Next cohort begins January 15

Feel like you’re solving the same problems over and over again?

Novo Execution trains “Change Leaders” in your business to lead improvement projects, get results, and make them stick.
Has your business started improvement projects only to get deep into the weeds and have no tangible results? Over 20 weeks, our team runs an improvement project with your business leaders that teaches them the tools and methods to then replicate the process on all future projects. Your business will complete a project over the 20 week period that will deliver tangible results and train your team.

With proper project selection, the average business sees a 2x-5x return on their investment.
