Lewis Carroll

Course Overview

All good Lean programmes start with a clear vision of what success might look like.

Time spent strategically charting our course from the present to that vision provides long-term guidance to our process improvements. Done well, it will define the behaviours of our staff and provide guidance on the key measures to keep everyone informed on progress.

Who should attend?

The programme is aimed at senior management in any business.

“Lean has allowed our business approach the reduction and elimination of wastes within our processes in a structured way that harnesses the energy of staff in a positive & safe environment. It has led to improvements in our services that will allow us to compete more effectively and offer Clients additional value.” — Ciaran, Director, Civil Engineering and Infrastructure
