About agro+lean

Everything started after people began to implement what they had learned from the MDA training program, where a model developed by Prof. Paulo Machado (specifically for farm business) was taught. Agro + Lean became a community of people, formed by companies and institutions from different regions of Brazil with the same objective: to improve the management of farm business and, consequently, the results and the quality of life to those involved.

To be part of this movement, you simply have to share our ideal: success is built with people, every day. 

Lean is about eliminating waste and about continuous improvement, by approaching everything you do with an eye toward making things simpler.
— Paul Akers
