What our tour participants have said…
I thought the training was fantastic. It was well presented and organised, and the material was very relevant and can be applied to our organisation. Shinka Management created a comfortable environment where we could ask questions and participate in group discussions.
It made all the light bulbs go off in my head. I knew the principles and I knew the theory but now it just all makes sense, now I can apply what I know and make real improvements in my business.
The training was intense but had great value because the subjects have been explained in such a clear manner opposite to some European experts who know how to turn lean into some NASA scientific miracle from another planet.

The course was conducted very professionally and in a way that you had to get involved, and it was fun! It was good to see how to prepare and…
A great training experience with a very wise lean practitioner, simplifying understanding of approaches to lean.
