We translate and publish books and magazines, not for profit and our aim is to develop and disseminate knowledge of lean thinking and lean practice. We help organizations and individuals understand and implement lean thinking. We do this by working with you to define and address gaps in performance that need to be closed, developing both your capability to improve the flow of value to your customers and the problem solving ability of your people so that you can sustain the gains and continuously improve.
We have been working with pioneers on all kinds of business problems, big and small, in almost every type of organization and activity and lean thinking has always helped unlock levels of performance that weren’t possible through traditional management approaches. Ongoing performance improvement is only possible if you capture and build on the knowledge gained from implementation - so the focus of our work is to help build your internal capability to make the changes and sustain them yourselves.
Our unique perspective is that we continuously seek to learn what the most effective mechanisms are for transferring this lean knowledge and developing lean capability – so together we can create more value, right first time, on time, in less time.
In our Action Research with organisations we develop hypotheses about Lean Thinking and its application and conduct research to see what works best in the real world. This approach helps the organizations we work with build a competitive advantage as together we simultaneously close performance gaps in the organisation whilst developing new knowledge of lean thinking and its application.
We use our action research to develop education in Lean Thinking. In addition we have developed both in-house and public workshops around core publications and our research findings. Participating in these workshops helps companies quickly get to grips with workbook contents and helps develop core lean skills.
We distill the lessons learned from all our activities. At every chance we contact with the industrial and community to organize events such our Lean Summit and other organizations as well as publishing Lean Bulletine and regular articles on our website.
