Lean Sensei is an authentic lean consultancy in Melbourne/Geelong, specializing in providing management consulting solutions in strategy, innovation, problem-solving, and cultural business transformation across all industries. We are recognized as World Class in operational excellence with clients across a wide variety of industries, global International Corporations as well as medium-sized entities. We assist in rolling out Continuous Improvement, OPEX, and LEAN. We follow the philosophy and principles of TPS (Toyota Production System) to attain sustainable long-term competitive advantage for our partners.

Our approach follows a People-centred Lean methodology acquired from being personally mentored by two Japanese lean Sensei, whilst transforming legacy Firestone factories into Bridgestone successes.


Each organization is unique and understanding its visionary ambitions and longer-term goals (The True North) needs to kick off any program of this nature. Understanding and distilling these needs are paramount for successful outcomes. From that, a gap assessment of needs is derived. We typically then follow with an Overview of Lean for the Executives. A roadmap can then be developed by engaging all levels in the renowned Hoshin Kanri Strategy Deployment methodology as developed by Bridgestone and later adopted by Toyota and others.

With this as a guiding platform, real training on Lean concepts followed by a pilot implementation is followed in tandem with a Learn by Doing training. Once a successful pilot is implemented, a wider rollout commences. Lastly, the organization is trained on how to continuously gain knowledge of itself, and its processes and develop a true Learning organization culture.
