Toyota Lean Management Centre

Amongst the abundance of literature dedicated to Lean it is hard to find an example which does not mention the 'Toyota Way'. The coaches of the Toyota Lean Management Centre have over 100 years of combined experience working with the 'Toyota Way'. We believe that mistakes are valuable learning experiences and the no blame culture that we embrace means we are not afraid to share our experiences.



Don't expect an easy ride. Interacting with Toyota Lean Management Centre is challenging because we want you to achieve the best possible results and experience tells us this comes from hard work.


A Japanese term meaning change for the better. It's all about small regular steps in the right direction. We don't have a magic formula or shortcut to being the best but one step at a time is the way to pass the competition.

Go Look - Go See - (and understand)

The books all talk about Genchi Genbutsu and Gemba walks but without understanding it's just good exercise. Whether it is training, a diagnostic or coaching our appetite to be on the shop-floor is insatiable and we want to help clients see waste and the opportunity this presents.


We don't know your processes better than you and we know that the people who operate the processes on a daily basis are the true experts. We will always involve all stakeholders and explain what we are trying to achieve and why.


Greatness is not due to a few exceptional individuals. Results come from the collective efforts of many. Developing everybody to achieve their potential plays a part in success. This means not only sharing the good times but embracing the bad, pulling together to solve problems.



It's the Toyota Way and the culture that we live by. If this sounds like the way you would like to do business we invite you to contact us to see if we can help.


Lean Training

Lean courses cover a wide breadth of topics which we have experience in applying to a diverse range of clients.


The Toyota Lean Management Centre will visit your site for a three day in-depth study to benchmark your organisation against TPS and the Toyota Way.
