What our lean training participants have said…
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.
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.
Thank you Shinka Team – this is very useful and, believe me, we will use it extensively. Rest assured that we will call you whenever something is required as the team is extremely satisfied with your time with us and, in particular, I have learnt a lot of new things and you’ve made me think…
The training was great. Provides clarity and a practical approach to what can seem a very complex process.
The training course was very valuable to our organisation. Great results were achieved. I am still using the tools for improvements.
