Who is this for?
This master class is designed for senior managers and lean practitioners interested in fostering a culture of continuous improvement within their organisation. You will learn first-hand about how process improvement is achieved within Japan’s leading companies, and more importantly, how to implement these practices within your operations.
Particularly relevant sectors include manufacturing, food and beverage, mining, wholesale & retail trade, logistics and transport.
This two-day lean leadership training will focus on the application of lean principles and the Toyota Production System (TPS) to sectors outside of automotive. The course will go beyond theory to discuss how lean thinking can be implemented and sustained within a company.

- Role of top management

- 5S and visual management
- Standardized work creation
- Continuous improvement culture
The course will also include an overview of the operations at the Toyota HiAce factory in Japan, as well as an afternoon tour and mini diagnosis at Spunlite Poles. This training is presented in partnership with Simply Lean Business Solutions.
What our lean training participants have said…
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.
A great training experience with a very wise lean practitioner, simplifying understanding of approaches to lean.
In our experience it is hard to find good quality training. We have been very impressed with the content and presentation of the Lean courses run by Shinka. We felt we got really good value, and came away feeling inspired and that we had the skills to improve our 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 Shinka Team enables an excellent learning environment for lean practitioners at all levels. They possess excellent communication skills and facilitate learning events incorporating theory, discussion and practical exercises. I would recommend to anyone interested in improving their business.
