Toyota Lean Management Programme

The Welsh Government is offering businesses in Wales primarily within the Advanced Materials & Manufacturing sector, the opportunity to participate in the Toyota Lean Management Programme (TLMP) to attend a 1 ½ days workshop at the Toyota Lean Management Centre and a potential 3-days Toyota diagnostic support.

The course will show leaders in organisations how to realise improvements to safety, quality, productivity and cost by the effective deployment of the Toyota Production System (TPS) and Toyota Way Leadership Behaviours.

Simulation techniques, worksite observation and discussion with Toyota Management will help delegates grasp the meaning of key elements of TPS and give them an insight into how to make this work in practice.

Delegates will also understand the process steps, key strategic issues and their own role in leading a lean transformation. After the 50% Welsh Government support, the workshop cost per delegate is £378 (+ VAT). The diagnostic support is fully funded by Welsh Government.

There is a limit of 3-4 individuals per company per session, (lunch and evening meal is provided on the first day of the workshop).
