Our Mission and Core Values

We are Operational Compliance Experts and we help organizations deliver Total Value.

Lean Compliance was founded by Raimund Laqua, PMP, P.Eng. in 2017 to help organizations meet increasing regulations and stakeholder commitments.

We believe that compliance matters because value needs to be protected and ensured.


Organizations today operate under numerous regulatory umbrellas including safety, security, sustainability, environmental, quality, corporate, along with other external and internal obligations – all simultaneously. The stakes are high, as compliance gaps often translate into mission failure. It only takes one broken link to break trust.

Our clients are forward-looking, ethical organizations that strive to always stay between the lines and ahead of risk.

Our programs help elevate compliance above the reactive behaviors and practices that hold organizations back from meeting today's compliance demands across their total value chain.


We accomplish this by harnessing Lean principles, along with proactive, integrative, and holistic strategies to meet risk and compliance challenges. Our network of experts and practitioners help raise compliance to higher standards across the world.


We hold the view that:

  • Organizations must take ownership of all their obligations for compliance to fulfill its duty to protect and ensure value creation.

  • Making and keeping promises is at the heart of compliance necessary for organizations to behave ethically with integrity.

  • Compliance is achieved by design not by hard work alone.

  • Mission success depends on compliance success.
