Introduction

This highly interactive 3 day internationally recognised training program is designed for those people who require a basic understanding of the techniques and principles of Lean. We do not touch on heavy statistical analysis during Lean Foundation or Practitioner program. Please see Lean 6 Sigma Programs.

What is Lean?

Lean is a set of principles, methods, tools, and techniques for process improvement in all forms of business.


Most of its principles, methods, tools and techniques have been developed over many decades and even centuries…however the term ‘Lean’ was developed out of the effective implementation of these tools and techniques by Toyota car manufacturing in the 1960’s, 70’s and 80’s.


The intention is to eliminate waste therefore increasing value and making your processes Safer, Easier, Better, Faster and Cheaper.

Course objectives

This course is for those businesses who feel they do not want or need to use heavy statistical analysis. Lean provides an understanding of a proven approach for the positive transformation of any organization by using the principles, methods, tools, and techniques to improve the key processes that make up the organization. The course is intended for the delegates to ‘think differently’ during their working day to work smarter, not harder.
