The Lean programme is one of the most practical and easily applied courses I have ever done. It has forced me to open my eyes and question the way we do everything in our business. The balance of the course between theory and practical is excellent and having the opportunity to work with Dermot (the mentor) one on one has made a remarkable difference to my business.

One of the most awakening statements made at the program was “waste is all around us its just not that easy to see” however when you become aware of it and start seeing it, and replacing it with lean processes everyone's work life becomes easier and more efficient. For a happy work life go Lean.

I found the course and it’s content superb....providing a fascinating insight into the world of LEAN. The on-site mentoring was an invaluable experience for myself, management team and staff. We have implemented many of the teachings and findings into our business today and I would highly recommend this programme to all SMEs.
