Therory and practice at once

Lean basic training

The aim of basic lean training courses is to transfer the basic knowledge and principles, to allow the participants to experience the advantages of the application of Lean through practical examples, simulations.

The acquisition of Lean knowledge, the uniform definition of the Lean approach is an important criterion of successful application for the organization.


Implementing lean thinking means a lot of advantages compared to the traditional management. With lean manufacturing it is possible to create a production system which uses less resources (manpower, time, cost, energy), with better quality, faster flow and adapts better to real customer needs. Part of this is the total involvement and training of employees, handling human resources as the most precious value of the company. With the application of lean thinking practice the organization keeps nothing from the processes which does not add value to the product or service – basic lean training helps to aquire this knowledge and approach.

More and more companies step on the road of applying Lean, and what we see is that introduction without the acquisition of uniform knowledge usually leads to the feedback: „we have applied some Lean, but it does not make any sense”, and this generally precludes the possibility of further developments. Avoiding this issue we place emphasis on lean basic training during lean implementation


Some feedbacks from participants summing up the value of our Basic Lean Training:

"It has surpassed my expectations, I have found it very interesting and it has informed me of a lot of things, by which we can become more efficient!"

"I have seen new approaches, the approach that „We have to produce, because if the machine is idle it does not make any profit!” is not the only one!"

"It gives a clear, plain picture of the Lean concept."

The outlook through the examples of other companies is very useful. The „subtleties” of the application of the tools are outstanding."

"I can see the realistic practical implementation of the acquired theoretical knowledge!"

"It has shown the difference between Lean manufacturing and simple mass production!"

"Until now I thought that it was a complicated, incomprehensible thing, but I have realized that with common sense and a simple approach it is easy to acquire. I can hardly wait to try it in practice!"

"It is illustrated with concrete examples → it can be implemented, it exists not only in theory. The advantages are quantifiable."

"I learnt a lot of things about production previously, only in theory, and it is surprising that we can apply them!"
