5 Day Lean Course

*** Next open course, 17th - 21st February 2020***


The 5 day course explores in detail the concepts of the Toyota Production System (TPS). Attendees will also experience Toyota Way management behaviours through observation and interaction.

TPS is our approach to achieving high operational performance and is widely admired and copied throughout the world. The lean tools associated with TPS can be applied in manufacturing and service providers alike.

However TPS cannot be totally successful in isolation, organisations need a culture that supports, encourages and continuously improves TPS. This culture is embodied in the concepts of the Toyota Way, concepts that apply equally at all levels in the organisation.

Suited to those who have some existing knowledge of Lean.  Our 5 day workshop provides delegates with a unique opportunity to immerse themselves in a Toyota manufacturing site.

Each team will feedback their learning to part of the senior management team at Deeside and will have the opportunity to interact with Toyota members on a daily basis.
