A very practical and easily visualised system that can be applied to all areas of a business.
Dennis was able to demonstrate workshop the typical process Continuous Improvement methods & application in a way that reinforced the learning in an enjoyable way.
The workshop has been very well presented and the hard copy resource manual will be used regularly back at the workplace. The simulated exercise is a practical learning opportunity to apply the theory and teamwork.
Thorough explanation of Lean & approach for problem solving; Hands-on approach to understanding of Lean to satisfy customers’ requirements and improve efficiency.
Dennis, our organisation has been on the path toward lean for a few years and we’ve have been learning as we go. I found your three day workshop most valuable as it reinforced my overall concept of what lean is about as well as offering tools to help our organisation continue down the lean journey. It also gave us a structure toward implementation, something that many people that I have engaged over the years have struggled with..
Very interesting! The course has been beneficial and I can see that we will be able to put a lot of this into place.
Thorough explanation of Lean & approach for problem solving; Hands-on approach to understanding of Lean to satisfy customers’ requirements and improving efficiency.
Simple but remarkably relevant hands on process was utilized to demonstrate lean concepts.
Being involved with various lean programs I found this approach much more beneficial. The simulation approach was a great example of understanding the methodology and different skills required to implement Lean. The maturity profile was a great tool to identify current and future improvement opportunities.
Some real food for thought with techniques to use in an office/administrative process/policy development / implementation environment.
The workshop is very very good.
I found the workshop to be enlightening and it opens up the mind to new ideas.
We really enjoyed the lean workshop sessions. The most interesting bit was the simulation runs— creating artificial bottlenecks, and then resolving quality issues, set-up time reduction and optimising line efficiency etc was really great! Enjoyed to the fullest extent!.
Very valuable workshop.
Hands-on simulations were highly educational and a lot of fun.
