Lean and Reliability Training


IMPACT Toolkit™ – Our Toolkit of skills and methods to improve productivity and performance in your organisation

Through our IMPACT Toolkit™, we provide training and competency development for Practitioners, Managers & Continuous Improvement Facilitators in all of the Lean, Process Improvement and reliability tools and techniques that we employ in our IMPACT Programme.

Our IMPACT Toolkit™ training workshops, delivered by our experienced continuous improvement consultancy team, provide consistently high standards with an average feedback score of 4.5 out of 5 over the past 15 years. Whether it’s a one-off 2-day course to get to the root of a recurrent failure (Root Cause Analysis), or a series of training workshops to address broader challenges,  our consultants use their extensive knowledge and practical experience to provide you hands-on learning easily transferred to the workplace.

On-site Training Workshops

Our Continuous improvement consultants provide training in lean, process improvement and reliability tools and techniques, on-site, for groups of 5 people or more. Our on-site training methods have been developed to engage mixed groups of practitioners in interactive sessions held next to the shop floor. Our ‘learn and do’ method of skills transfer maintains interest and means that attention is always focused on the application of the competencies that are being learnt. Solutions come from teaching new skills and developing competency through the application of those skills. By bringing together people working in different functional areas, with different experiences and knowledge, ideas can be shared, an agreement is more easily reached and every team member can take ownership.

“Excellent course that allowed us to analyse real-time problems with a lot of interaction and well presented.” 

Off-site Training Workshops

We deliver Lean, Process Improvement and Reliability training, off-site, at locations across the UK throughout the year. These workshops are delivered by our experienced Continuous Improvement consultancy team and provide consistently high standards combining theory with as much practical exercise as possible complimented by customer-based case study and examples. Delegates have the opportunity to meet counterparts from different industries, to collaborate and exchange personal experience and ideas all of which adds to the learning experience.

“Very informative with lots of opportunity for discussion. Good practical exercises that we can implement on the shop floor”.
