Education is a core element of our lean thinking mission, both as a not-for-profit organisation and as a member of the Lean Global Network. Through our participation in the Lean Global Network and in our practical lean work with organisations across the spectrum of private, public and not-for-profit, we constantly test and renew our insights. We then feed these insights back into our workshops.

Workshop summary: Understanding comes from doing. So this introductory course tells you ‘about’ lean but also uses repeated cycles of an experiential learning game to allow understanding to develop. The workshop is designed for participants from all backgrounds, manufacturing, services, or government, to learn the basic principles, tools and practices of lean management. Watch this short video clip of Prof Norman Faull giving an overview of the workshop.

Workshop summary: The Lean Management the A3 Way (LMA3) workshop is designed to equip organisations that have embarked on the lean transformation journey to strengthen a culture of problem-solving. It is an interactive workshop that uses the book Managing to Learn by John Shook. A3 coaching forms the key component of the workshop. The workshop teaches tools that empower people to improve value delivery to customers, employees and other key stakeholders continuously. The approach is learning by doing.

What are the Lean Transformation Framework (LTF) and Kata?
The LTF is a framework that challenges us to think strategically about lean implementation. Kata, in the lean context, are routines for learning and improvement.
Why combine them?
The LTF is the “big picture” and strategic. Kata is about improvement rituals and thoughtfulness in daily practice at the situational level. Effective practice (in the service of customers and other stakeholders) requires combining strategy and action.
Lean is a management system that is directed by conscious purpose. The LTF emphasises purpose, direction, “True North”. The “Kata” emphasises engagement, thoughtfulness and learning at all levels of an organisation, but especially at the direct value adding level.
By combining LTF and Kata material in one 2-day workshop we aim to accelerate your strategic adoption and effective use of lean. Management systems, leader behaviour, capability building: these things and more will be put to you as essential components of your approach to achieving your purpose – personally and organisationally.
