In an energizing kick off the proceedings on the research were shared. Main findings are that Lean factors are interrelated. How could you apply these findings in continuous improvement? As a practioner you can adapt your deployment strategy to these factors. As a result you will increase Lean success.

In our courses for the Green Belt and Black Belt this knowledge is directly applied, giving you the lastest insights and tools.
