We use known frameworks and academic research to establish a culture and structure for sustainable continuous improvement.
Training at different levels is important to develop the competencies in improvement methods but is not sufficient for an improvement culture to become sustained. Sometimes training can even have a negative effect. Organisations bring in trainers and when they leave, very little is left behind. People are not given time or resources. There is no structure in place to ensure that improvement is driven strategically. This can mean that the people who have done the training get frustrated and leave.
Training is necessary but not sufficient.
Lean Sigma Institute has researched sustainability of continuous improvement programs for many years and published on the subject. This is the basis for our work.

As experienced managers and consultants we are comfortable working with people at all levels from the boardroom to the shop floor.
We have a strong interest in research and education and aim to promote wider understanding of the methods, tools and techniques of sustainable improvement, through our own research, support for conferences, networks and discussions groups.
Lean Sigma Institute provides the whole range of improvement support, consulting, training and facilitation, to assist organizations achieve World Class levels of performance in their operations.
For the potential “Change Drivers” in your organisation we provide advanced improvement skills training in Lean Six Sigma to Black, Green, Yellow and White Belt levels to achieve internationally recognized registration as Professional Practitioners.
However, training is not sufficient for an organization to actually achieve World Class levels of performance. There are often internal barriers and limitations that hinder organisations, making them “under-achievers”. Training and education needs to be carried out within a context of monitored performance that can identify these barriers and deal with them. See A Model for Strategic Implementation of Continual Improvement.
