Lean Rt  – Straining Programs and Tools for Continuous Improvement

LEAN Rt is a unique training program and a Lean toolbox developed by observing the most successful companies and sharing best practice through SIRF Roundtables.

From manufacturing plants to offices, Australasian businesses today are facing many challenges. To continue to be viable, companies must find new ways to deliver higher quality, at lower cost while exceeding customer expectations. If you are thinking about strategies to achieve these objectives, then you are probably considering Lean. If you are not, you should be.

Having been newly appointed to a change management project role I found the learning from ‘Introduction to Lean’ gave me a fresh insight into systematic change for improvement. ... I have been inspired to go on to find out more.

LEAN Rt’s world class approach includes both a top down and bottom up process. It engages managers, workforce, and improves processes. It is a long term strategy that can yield some quick wins if waste is pinpointed and removed, but the real gains come through fostering a culture that engages people in continuous improvement.

LEAN Rt is loved by Australasian businesses especially for its unique, hands on Action Learning Projects that not only illustrate theory, but prove how real improvements are done on site. We have delivered Lean training to some of Australia’s widely known companies, such as Rio Tinto, BHP, Boral, Visy, and others.
