What's New

If you were unable to attend the Lean Thinking and Practice Summit in Melbourne this year, you now have the opportunity to hear John Shook describe the Lean Transformation model in his keynote address at the summit.

The Lean Transformation Model is based on years of experiential learning in hundreds of organisations and acknowledges the requirement for a clear purpose for the organisational transformation, people development to equip teams with improvement and problem solving skills and relentless, continuous improvement of processes.  The transformation is supported and led by organisational leaders and takes into consideration the culture and basic thinking that will be required to shape the character of the transformation.  It is a practical model that will work in any sector, allowing the flexibility within structure to guide the transformational model.

So put aside an hour to listen to John explain the model and share its success. Click here
