    Our Culture: The Fortive Business System

    In the Japanese language there is a word “kaizen” that we know to mean “continuous improvement.” Setra has embraced a culture of Kaizen enabling a perpetual cycle of improvement in quality, delivery, cost and innovation. This is the Fortive Business System (FBS).

    FBS is at the core of our business and touches every aspect of our culture and performance. We use FBS to guide what we do, measure how well we execute, and create options for doing even better - including improving FBS itself. FBS has evolved from a collection of manufacturing improvement tools into a philosophy, set of values, and series of management processes that collectively define who we are and how we do what we do.

    Success doesn’t happen on accident. Fueled by Danaher's core values, the FBS engine drives the company through a never-ending cycle of change and improvement: exceptional people develop plans and successfully execute them to construct sustainable processes, resulting in superior business and product performance. Superior performance and high expectations attract exceptional talent, who continue the cycle.
