Lean Advantage LLC was founded by Anita Havemann in 2017 to help organizations become leaner by eliminating waste from their processes – especially internal and administrative processes such as accounts receivable, accounts payable, month-end close and other accounting processes. Unlike larger consulting firms which carry excess staff, fees, and overhead, Lean Advantage LLC hits the ground running with small agile teams that are well-rounded, seasoned professionals to quickly deliver results.
