Course Description

Lean, or Business Improvement Techniques, is a set of skills and behaviours that are embedded into a business, at all levels, encouraging and promoting ‘good change’. The term Lean comes from the idea of removing waste and being left with value added activities and processes that impact the business. The principles have been in practice for over 60 years, originating in Japan with Toyota, building on ideas first introduced by Henry Ford.
