Our academy program builds certified capability in lean management, six sigma quality, cost reduction, and project acceleration. In intensive training seminars, the “Boot Camps”, participants learn to see the hidden wastes and opportunities, and how to go after them. They learn to map the value stream end-to-end, structure cross-functional projects, organize teams, solve systemic problems and – most importantly – stretch beyond their personal comfort zone. Those champions grow personally and professionally, and bring back not only seminar papers but also new thinking and enhanced capability.

Lean Audit

Health-Check for Factory and Office

The Lean Audit allows you to determine operational health and maturity level by assessing people, processes, and systems, so you can make an accurate comparison between the existing configuration and industry best practices. Insights gained from the Lean Audit will help you identify the opportunities and course-corrections that ultimately lead to higher performance levels, while gaining a competitive edge from a leaner operation. Performing a Lean Audit helps you challenge the status quo and improve operational fitness to better compete in a rapidly evolving world.


The Lean Audit is available as guidebook and application for desktop and mobile.

With our deep technical knowledge, proven management expertise and cross-cultural experience, we are able to implement changes that bring businesses to the next level. We emphasize on cooperation, roll up our sleeves, and work side-by-side with our clients’ teams, leading them through the critical change process until skills are developed, projects implemented, gains realized, and systems in place to sustain them long-term – Navigating to Results.
