At Team Integra our improvement thinking, philosophy and principles have been shaped by our experience, learning and collaborations. Our work with leaders and natural work teams is built on a foundation of flow, kaizen, constraint and systems thinking.

As with the Shingo model and systems thinkers like Donella Meadows we believe that thinking and principles are the foundation for the systems and metrics that evolve in organisations. Those systems and metrics result in observable performance and an emergent organisational culture. Therefore a culture change will only occur when the foundational thinking and principles change.
