Modular Lean Implementation Programmes

Rethinking Lean

We meet many organisations who have begun their Continuous Improvement Programme in earnest only to find the demands this puts on the business, sees the Programme either plateau or slip back despite the efforts of the Team. Organisations need to take stock of where they are on their Journey and begin taking the right steps to re-establish and advance their programme in a manageable way. Our Rethinking Lean Programme gives you the opportunity to revitalise your programme, refresh your team’s understanding and application, recover lost ground, or advance into new territory.

The programme is completely customizable to suit your level of knowledge, understanding and application and is designed to meet your specific needs through three simple steps.

An initial conference call with us defines these needs and collectively we agree on the training and applications that you need to meet your goals and ensure this fits within your budget.

Coaching is undertaken as a mix of Classroom and/or On-Job-Training environments tailored to your organisation and culture. Our Team is highly skilled and experienced with more than 25 years working in Continuous Improvement environments; teaching and implementing in more than 100 organisations from very diverse business sectors.
