Welcome to the U.S. based home of: Mission-Directed Work Teams®

The Mission-Directed Work Teams (MDW) program is a company-wide Lean work system that combines world-class best practice with high employee involvement. MDW focuses on the implementation of proven “best practice” enabling teams, throughout the organization, to zero in on their customer’s needs and empowered to meet them. The result is a culture of teamwork, participation, and continuous improvement, positively impacting an organization’s Key Performance Measures (KPIs).
