What our clients say
The simulation made it very visual how changing the perspective and the goal from the department to the value produced to the customer improves the process, reduces waste, WIP and increases the benefit (in this case the profit). It was also great to see how the team realised at the end that without communicating with each other and understanding the dependencies of each department it would be challenging to get benefit.
Aygul MansurovaInland Revenue
We used James and Paul from LeanIT to run their Lean Simulation Training across three individual teams from within the Wintec Student Enrollment and Information Centre. The simulation was a great way for those that participated, not only to better understand key lean principles, but to experience these first hand. James and Paul tailored the simulations around a tight schedule we imposed in order to give everyone the chance to participate – this was really useful for us. The feedback received from the teams was very positive and as managers we noticed immediate outcomes with staff questioning and considering improvements to business processes. I would certainly recommend the Lean Simulation Training for a wide variety of teams and businesses.
