What Past Attendees Are Saying...
Mike is an engaging Lean leader with real world experience at many levels within the Toyota organization. His practical knowledge and engaging style drives home the points presented in a way that sticks with the team. Great content presented by an outstanding teacher and relevant to any industry.
Meeting other practitioners, sharing experience, and going to see with the tours were important elements that made this course high-value for me. Mike brought many key concepts and lessons together that showed how true experts like him apply the Toyota Culture to create daily improvement practices which is the most valuable investment for any organization.
I have been to many events during my career, and I can say with certainty that this is the best and most helpful Lean Manufacturing Event I have been part of. I highly recommended to any professional from any industry and to entire groups or teams, if possible.
As an individual starting on my lean journey, the learning experience has been invaluable. I’m excited to start my journey with these principles as my foundation. Thank you!
I am leaving the course energized to make a difference in my organization.
I have earned two engineering degrees and an MBA in finance over the course of my career. I have gone through 2 Lean certifications and I am a Six Sigma Black Belt… In all those courses the human element and the culture, which I know is foundational, was briefly glazed over. You guys have the “secret sauce” to true Lean deployment.
Great experience! Very informative, hands-on seminar. Activities to understand and apply principles covered in lectures. Mike is very engaging and open to questions and feedback. Met great people from other industries and was able to learn from them and relate to their problem-solving. Mike takes into consideration specific topics the group wants to cover or situations they would like to address and tailors the course to the needs of the attendees.
This course was great in helping me as a new Supervisor understand the basics of the Lean principles and how to effectively apply the tools learned. I definitely recommend taking this course no matter your experience level.
This course offers an abundance of learning and growth opportunities on an organizational level, as well as on the individual level.
The experiences and sharing from Mike really helped me to challenge my baseline assumptions about how I think my organisation should function. I am returning to work re-motivated to support my teams and create the problem solving skills that we all want to see.
Absolutely amazing! Coming in I knew the technical side of TPS being in the Toyota family for 15 years but understanding the purpose, why and how to deploy was really eye opening for me. Really one of the best training I have ever received.
This is a real “where the rubber meets the road” learning experience. Highly suggested.
