Lean thinking is based on the legendary Toyota Production System that produces very high quality products; in a very short time and at a low cost. To many people and organisations achieving all three of these goals simultaneously is an impossibility. Lean provides a methodology and tools that enable organisations to make significant improvements in lead time, cost reduction and product or service quality. This course provides delegates with a practical introduction to the lean methods and tools so that they can undertake simpler improvement activities.
