Our flagship lean training program, the Lean Japan Tour, was first run in 2007 and provides our clients from manufacturing and non-manufacturing industries with the opportunity to not only develop a correct understanding of lean principles, but also to learn about implementation and management practices through visits to world-class lean companies and meetings with veteran managers. The Lean Japan Tour provides professional development for participants through a mix of seminars, Japanese industry visits and hands-on training, allowing them to learn the principles, see them in action and practice implementing them, all whilst experiencing the best of Japanese management culture and hospitality.
