The Lean Learning Center offers a five-day program that takes your company on a lean transformation.
Few companies today escape the challenge of delivering the best value to their customers. With global companies consolidating, margins getting razor-thin, customers demanding more, and suppliers squeezing profits, lean transformation provides the solution. By incorporating the waste-reducing, streamlined, enterprise-wide system that enabled Toyota to revolutionize the auto industry, your company can slash costs, find speed and flexibility, and gain the ability to compete in any environment—profitably.
Lean is about principles and rules-not just tools.
Lean applies to all industries and every function of your business.
Adults learn through experience and dialogue-not through books and lectures.
The Lean Learning Center has created a powerful learning resource for the people who will make your lean initiative a success: executives, managers, change agents, and team and front-line leaders. Building on their unique set of courses, the Lean Learning Center staff will also help you design and create your own lean implementation plan.
This program is for both those new to lean and lean experts. What’s the difference between a lean program and a true lean transformation? Only those companies that go beyond the tools of lean and develop the common lens, language, and thinking of lean succeed. Success is measured not just by a company’s ability to get results today, but to sustain and accelerate improvements. The Lean Experience®® covers what no other program does—the principles and rules that enable lean transformation. You’ll learn how to use traditional lean tools and receive guidance and power to go beyond the tools.
The Lean Experience®® is exactly what it sounds like: an experience! You’ll internalize lean through personal experience and application using our Learn- Apply-Reflect process. Through a rapid repeated process, you’ll learn key concepts and put them in your head, apply them when you put them in your hands, and reflect upon them when you put them in your heart. After Learn- Apply-Reflect, you’ll return to your organization as lean leaders, coaches, and achievers.
