Lean Training Brisbane

Over the past few years, Lean training has gathered momentum in all parts of Australia, including Brisbane. But not all Lean training in Brisbane is authentic. Some of it is mere window dressing, and most of it is derived. Our institute Lean Sensei prides itself on imparting Lean management philosophy along with its principles as advocated by the Japanese Sensei, the instructors or guides themselves.

We offer authentic Lean transformation as part of the Lean training we undertake for executives of Brisbane. This is as per what Japanese companies like Toyota and Bridgestone have developed. In fact, our Founder Dirk Crouse was one of those influential in bringing about the transformation of Firestone Operations to Bridgestone Systems.

We teach the strategy development practices as advocated by Hoshin Kanri – a tool effected by Bridgestone. We also advocate the ‘Learn by Doing’ philosophy – a 6-step process that begins with seeing and understanding and ends with coaching or imparting training to others. Somewhere along the way, our students learn to identify objectives and hurdles to them, learn to problem-solve and implement better ways of doing things.

The focus of our Lean Training for Brisbane is on the continuous development of people. We help optimise the capacity of people to learn and grow and bring out a culture change that is effective in better resource utilisation and more result-oriented in achieving long-term organisational objectives.

As part of our Lean Training for Brisbane, we also advocate the policies of continuous learning and development (Kaizen). This is as per the Deming Model of PDCA (Plan Do Check Act). All the above translates into a holistic, well-oiled management training program that benefits leaders across various industries and truly helps organisations do more and achieve more.

We have worked with stalwarts like Fonterra, CSL and Bridgestone in the past. We truly believe that the best is yet to come, both for you and for us. Join us for a trailblazing journey in becoming the best you as a manager and prospective industry leader.
