What our lean training participants have said…
A great training experience with a very wise lean practitioner, simplifying understanding of approaches to lean.
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 course was very valuable to our organisation. Great results were achieved. I am still using the tools for improvements.
The 2-day program provided our leadership team with a great opportunity to focus on our business and to reflect on opportunities for improvement.
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.
