Lean and process improvement training

Our trainers are active lean and process improvement consultants.  When they aren't training they are advising companies on business process management and lean processes, engendering lean culture and working with companies to improve their operations. This gives them a unique, practical understanding of the training they provide, using real life examples of problems they have solved and ensuring they are up to speed with all current issues in the field.

The course will provide in-depth knowledge of the aims, methods and tools of lean and six sigma, with guidance on how to get the best results when implementing the working methods. By combining theory with practical and real life experience, including delegates' own examples, EEF makes the subject highly relevant to the participants.
