We have carefully designed and structured our LCS 1a workshop to accommodate and prepare those individuals that will be effected by changes in the current ways of working as a business progresses on it’s Lean transformation. By providing everyone with the ability to understand and articulate fundamental lean ideas the speed and success rate of a transformation is greatly improved.
This one-day workshop is a mixture of presentations, discussions, and simulation activity delivered and supported by our business improvement professionals who have years of hands-on experience implementing what they teach.
