4 Key Benefits of this Lean Problem Solving Training
Tried-and-Tested Problem Solving Methods
Lean has been in use for a long time. Its methods and approaches for problem solving have been tested and fine-tuned over the past decades.
When you implement lean problem solving methods, you’re using proven formulas for efficient problem solving.
Process Improvement Tools
This training covers a number of foundational lean tools, which your team can begin to utilise immediately within your business.
When these tools are applied correctly, they can streamline and greatly improve existing processes.
Potential for Savings & Increased Profits
Improvements to processes and sustainable solutions to problems lead to time and money saved, less wasted resources, and in time, better profitability.
Option for Further Development
This workshop can be delivered on its own or as part of a more comprehensive continuous improvement programme for your team.
For example, you may wish to pair it with our FMEA Training or a Process Mapping Workshop. We can advise on the best solution for your organisation when in the planning or review stages of your workshop

This is an in-company workshop, meaning it is only available for group bookings.
In-company – also referred to as “in-house” or “on-site” training – is a format where we provide training solely to your team or a group of participants from your organisation.
We can deliver training in two ways:
- an in-person classroom style, where come to your premises (or a venue you choose).
- online as a live virtual classroom. This is a real-time, interactive workshop, delivered by our experienced trainers – superb for remote teams.
The workshop is very active in learning style. It is also a very tailored programme, where participants apply the learning to an existing problem in your business.
We will identify the problem you want to tackle and focus the content around how lean problem solving principles could help you achieve the outcome you need.
Flexible and Cost Effective
This method of training gives you greater control over the training delivery date. You choose dates that work around your business schedule instead of slotting in with public course dates.
Our in-company pricing structure means that it can work out as a very cost-efficient way to develop the process improvement skills of your entire team or department.
