Boot Camp

A three-day immersion experience. This is an intensive, team-building experience that will allow the group to “live” for a few days inside an organization that struggles daily to stay true to its values.

Why do we offer Boot Camps?

We started our Boot Camp program with the CI team at Nordstrom and leaders in the Dutch healthcare system in order to help their leaders better understand the Kaas Operating System. We learned that spending three days as Kaas team members allows the guests to be able to see both the good and the bad within our organization.

This is ideal for organizations that are serious about going through a lean transformation and want to expedite the learning curve.


Each Boot Camp experience is custom fit for each organization. However, the typical agenda is a Field Day followed by 2 days of exploring the ins and outs of the organization through job shadowing, problem-solving, and simulations.

*Lunch is provided all 3 days

What can be learned?

Guests will have the opportunity to see how visual management and daily habits create information “flow” and how these tools create the freedoms to innovate and serve our clients. Simulations are designed for guests to be able to feel the difference between good and bad work methods.

What are some normal outcomes?

Guests typically leave this time physically, emotionally, and, sometimes, even spiritually exhausted. It is common to have some leave with more clarity on how to lead more effectively using a principle-based approach.
