Workshop 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.

Lean, or BIT, is effective when applied using a range of tools and techniques.

  • Workplace Organisation is the cornerstone of continuous improvement.
  • Effective team work and Kaizen techniques allow you to engage and empower your workforce.
The use of effective problem solving is critical to the success of your improvement activities and sustaining change is most effective through the use of Visual Management and Standardised working techniques.

Impact on Quality, Cost and Delivery

Lean principles will deliver the impact you are looking for. Improvement in quality leads to reduction in costs. These, in turn, impact on your internal and external delivery times.

Immediate Results

Utilising lean principles can give you immediate results. Simple changes, positive improvements and using the expertise of your workforce can gain you quick wins.

Reduce Waste

One of the core principles of lean is to impact and reduce the wastes in your business. Lean focuses on where waste is, creating opportunities to reduce the waste and sustain positive changes made.

Energise Employees

A core concept of lean is that your workforce are your experts. Engaging, motivating and empowering your workforce will provide you with a wealth of opportunities to make and sustain positive improvements.
