About the course

The Essence of Excellence

Starting a Lean Program with a few enthusiasts is easy. Creating a sustainable Lean Program which involves and engages all of the employees is hard. It takes strong leadership, a change in culture, willing people and excellence across all functions and levels of the organisations.

Few have truly succeeded in doing this.

Advanced Lean Masterclass program has been designed and delivered by Professor Peter Hines to show you how to do this. It is not for beginners. In it you will learn that the starting point is not the traditional Lean or Six Sigma tools but the identification of the culture you want and the behaviours you need to make it flourish. You will then learn how one of the very best organisations define and implement 4 Core Operating Systems that are designed to be both technically and behaviourally excellent. Each of these will be reviewed in depth.

  • The program goes beyond the normal Tools & Techniques of Lean and is designed for Senior Directors and Managers and Improvement professionals looking to create sustainable success.
  • Learn and explore about Advanced Lean in practice, not just in the classroom by undertaking 3 gemba-based learning experiences in a leading organisation.
  • Peter Hines has consistently been one of the top rated instructors at Aalto EE and is regarded as the #1 Lean expert in Europe, this course achieved a Net Promoter Score of 9.2/10 when last run.
