Hi, I’m Brian Kerr

I help people improve the quality and value of their work by:

  1. creating space for lean transformation and new ways of working,
  2. practicing simple, effective continuous improvement methods, &
  3. implementing change and adoption so that things stick.

I’ve been a consultant for 15+ years, working alongside clients in technology, finance, healthcare, social sector, government agencies (municipal, state, and federal), media, and so on. I work to reduce the amount of suffering, wasted effort, and impeded human flourishing that arise in the workplace.

What’s it like working with me?

David, an IT director in Texas:
“Brian led an assessment engagement for my application development team which provided me with unexpected, actionable, and valuable insights into my team’s performance and ways that it could be enhanced. His approach was extremely effective and collaborative, which allowed him to develop the trust necessary to really understand what was going on with the team and to get honest and direct feedback that he turned into recommendations we still use for guidance a year after his visit.”
Sharon, a program manager in Washington state:
“What I have appreciated most in my time working with Brian is his ability to gather multiple perspectives and feedback to craft solutions. Brian is impactful with his communication and listening skills, his ability to collaborate and his flexibility in adapting to changes in course. He is amazingly good at listening to and responding to critique. His end goal is a better whatever-it-is-he’s-working-on-or-towards and he has real passion for making sure that it includes the input of anyone who cares about the end result.”
Andre, a management consultant in Washington state:
‌‌“Brian is an excellent listener and collaborator. As a result, he is able to turn ideas into tangible products and services with minimal waste and no excuses. He is the rare talent that can design and build complex software products and then turn around and teach an all-day workshop. As a facilitator he is able to guide clients through complex processes and push them to reach their goals. As much as I have appreciated his ability to do his job, I am even more impressed by how he does it. All of his work efforts and human interactions are guided by respect for people and a strong drive to continuously improve processes and places.”
