Lean Management Workshop

Lean Management Workshop

Imagine teams that produce value efficiently, minimize and eliminate waste, optimize flow and continuously improve. Lean wisdom enables such outstanding results. The Lean Management Workshop helps you learn and leverage the wisdom of Lean.

You’ll learn why to avoid multitasking, maximizing staff utilization and locally optimizing. You’ll learn how to map your value stream, make work visible, limit Work in Progress (WIP), accelerate or remove handoffs, shorten learning cycles and optimize for value.

Best of all, you’ll learn Lean by experiencing it in a series of immersive games and simulations, taught by expert Lean practitioners.


"I loved that this workshop approached the content via exercises (lean games and simulator project). Experiencing the effect that persons like "Carlos" has to a project through the Kanban game was much more effective than just having someone teaching me this via conventional methods"Student, Schlumberger
  • "I loved building a Value Stream Map and locating the bottleneck. The instructors were excellent, interactivity among our groups was high and time management during the workshop was great."Student, Saudi Telecom
