has had several years of experience from management development, focusing
on change and development assignments in service and knowledge based
companies, both in the private and public sectors. These assignments

improvement, Paula has emphasized good relations within the workgroup.

managers in groups.

further developed her skills in order to master the Lean concept. She
has been one of the driving forces to develop and spread the knowledge
about Lean and its possibilities within healthcare and service organisations
in Sweden. In 2003 Paula Braun was one of the founders of Lean Concepts
AB in Sweden.
