About this Event

Course Overview

Lean is based on delivering two fundamental objectives: Customer satisfaction and generating a profit. To achieve this, lean focuses on the development of a continuous improvement culture, rooted in a fundamental respect for people. It is a way of thinking; a set of behaviours shaped by Lean principles and the use of Lean tools to support a culture of continuous improvement.

Throughout the training we will be applying the PDCA approach to continuous improvement. It is known as a system for developing critical thinking. At Toyota this is also known as "Building people before building cars." Toyota and other Lean companies have proved that an engaged, problem-solving workforce using PDCA is better able to innovate and stay ahead of the competition through rigorous problem solving and the subsequent innovations.

This course builds on these principles and will provide participants with a structured method to manage change, using Lean Tools to identify opportunities for improvement, processes to test and validate the proposed improvements, and how to implement and sustain them. Then build upon the improvement achieved to further improve using the PDCA cycle time and time again.
