About the LtoJ® System
Created in 2003, the LtoJ® system is built on the fundamental principles of Continuous Improvement.
LtoJ comes from the shape of the histogram. The most famous histogram in the world is the bell-curve, which is perfect for the middle of a school year. With the LtoJ process the year begins with an “L” shaped histogram, moves toward a mid-year bell and ends the year with a “J” curve. The success of LtoJ is based upon replacing failed processes with more successful ones.
