    Foreword:

    This two-day Lean Process Improvement training course will give your organisation the foundational tools it requires to implement Lean.

    Day one will explore the foundational Toyota precepts of Lean and the five improvement concepts - value, waste, variation, complexity, and continuous improvement.

    The second day will focus on the actual tools for implementing these continual improvement concepts in their organisation. Useful tools will include; Lean data mapping methods, 5S, 5W-2H, PDSA, DMAIC, Kaizen, Genchi Genbutsu.

    This Lean process improvement training course will enable an entire organisation to holistically apply lean thinking across every aspect of their value stream. From the worker to the CEO, the constant reevaluation of the value stream across each product and service family will challenge old thinking and create a new culture of lean thinking. Once the value of a product or service is identified, then unnecessary waste can be removed with continual process improvement.

    Lean is not just limited to manufacturing and production, but also can equally be applied to service oriented industries like healthcare, government, education and agribusiness.
