Continuous Improvement

Learn how to establish a framework for the purpose of leadership development in the area of Continuous Improvement

The Challenge

A continual improvement framework enables leaders and their teams to identify opportunities for streamlining work processes and create operational efficiencies of financial savings.  An ongoing effort may include improvements to products, or services. These efforts can seek "incremental" improvement over time or "breakthrough" improvement all at once.

We offer a range of continuous improvement programmes designed to help you drive performance within your organization.  These programmes aim to develop the skills and build expertise in a variety of disciplines - focussing the on the mindsets and behaviours which support /complement LEAN philosophy. 


2-Day Continuous Improvement Masterclass

During a 1-2 day facilitated workshop we aim to gain a deep understanding of 'continuous improvement' within your organization.  We can then help your people, teams and leaders develop and use LEAN insights and structural design to effect sustainable change within project teams or across business functions. 

This can include helping them to get real clarity around risk and value management, and be able to inspire everyone into action.  Learn techniques to identify measures of success, promote innovation and deliver lasting change.  

Key areas of learning: 
  • Align expectations and vision of different stakeholders.
  • LEAN behaviours 
  • Change management 
  • Time management 
  • Commercial focus 
  • Business acumen
