In today’s business environment where constant price reduction demands from customers impact heavily on management decisions, Lean Enterprise concepts have helped companies to remain competitive, innovative and profitable. Lean implementation results in enhanced cost and cycle-time reduction, increased customer satisfaction, and standardised high quality. This workshop will focus on lean methods that can be used to minimise all forms of waste and maximise value for the customer.

The goal of this course is to give participants a thorough understanding of what “Lean” is all about, define and explain the tools used, and, through case studies and group exercises, show how these tools can be applied in their own work environments.

How does it Work?

Onsite Training is when we come to you to provide training on your premises or at a location of your choice. Not only will we run the course at a time and venue that suits you, we will also develop a unique programme particular to the developmental, cultural and business requirements of your company.

What's Involved?


Step 1 | After initial discussions, you meet with our training specialist. Here you both work together to design and sculpt a more comprehensive programme outline.

Step 2 | From this outline, a course is designed which addresses your exact needs. Sometimes this involves a completely new course designed from scratch, this depends on your needs.

Step 3 | Once you're happy with everything, the trainer will deliver the course at a venue of your choice on a date that suits.

Step 4 | Once complete, feedback will be gathered from delegates to ascertain the ‘true’ impact. And finally a report will be compiled for you outlining outcomes alongside your stated objectives.
