Introduction to Lean Thinking

Are you frustrated by poor communication and waste in your organization? Lean thinking may be just what your team needs.

Lean has transformed the way that many of today’s top-performing businesses and organizations operate. This workshop provides those who work in the manufacturing or service/transactional sectors with an introduction to Lean thinking and easy-to-implement continuous improvement tools.


Lean thinking refers to a philosophy and management strategy focused on customer value and respect for people.

The instructor leads the class with engaging exercises and examples from a variety of industries to bring the lean principles and tools to life. Students leave the classroom with knowledge on how to begin applying their learning to their work immediately.

Grant funding may be available to pay the training costs for frontline workers. Please contact us for more information.
