 Welcome to Speed To Excellence and the website of STE, established in 2004 to aid and assist companies in Learning Fast to achieve excellence. Our focus is on the Competitive Race that we are in— whether we know it or not! It’s all about how fast we learn and sucessfully apply those concepts.

STE’s main focus is sharing knowledge in order to transform companies on the path to  excellence in a rapid manner by using all the appropriate tools available such as the “5 pound hammer on the right size nail” and the  “forceps on the boiled egg”!

With our many years of being on the operational experience journey in many varied industries under all conditions including Lean Transformations and Lean Six Sigma implementations, we can help plan strategies to beat the competition rapidly!

Bill Baker is the creator of several groundbreaking innovations including:

  1. Lean for the Enterprise- not just manufacturing or operations
  2. Fast Track Benchmarking
  3. Rapid Knowledge Transfer (RKT)
  4. The Benchmarking Continuum
  5. The Benchmarking Organizational Maturity Matrix
  6. The Internal Knowledge Management Network

We deploy tools not broadly understood or mastered including:

  • Lean Enterprise Thinking
  • Benchmarking
  • Change Management
