Lean Essentials online training - Lean Business Training Consultants

Lean Essentials is our foundation programme.  It is suitable for people at all levels of your organisation, from the shop floor to senior management.  Lean Essentials equips people with the Lean tools needed for continuous improvement projects.  As well as the training, participants will take part in our own experiential simulation game and we assign an expert Lean Mentor on a one-to-one basis to enable your employees to fully implement the practical application of Lean to your own business.

Lean Team Meeting

“I really enjoyed the course.  I found the mentor sessions really useful as they challenged me to think about the impact of my project in a totally different but more powerful way.”

“I really enjoyed the programme, especially the 1:1 mentoring which allowed me to take a reasonably complex concept and whittle it down to two concise process improvements that should improve business practice.”
