Lean In

Lean Foundations

Your whole team needs to think Lean.

Lean Foundations gives staff on the floor the tools they need to understand and actively participate in continuous improvement projects, and maintain the Lean culture you are building in your business.

Delivered by a team of local Lean experts with exceptional credentials who are available to support your organization as you pursue your Lean journey, this program could be included in every employee’s orientation.

Participants in the Lean Foundations program are introduced to the base of Lean tools through a combination of classroom presentation, simulations, and group activities during 4-hour sessions held over five consecutive days. Take one week, and get your team all speaking the same language.

The topics covered include a broad introduction to core Lean principles, value stream mapping, problem solving, workplace organization, and all of the basics your staff need to continuously improve efficiency and quality in your organization.
