Advanced Lean Masterclass
The Essence of Excellence
Starting a Lean Program with a few enthusiasts is easy. Creating a sustainable Lean Program which involves and engages all of the employees is hard. It takes strong leadership, a change in culture, willing people and excellence across all functions and levels of the organisations.
Few have truly succeeded in doing this.
Advanced Lean Masterclass program has been designed and delivered by Professor Peter Hines to show you how to do this. It is not for beginners. In it you will learn that the starting point is not the traditional Lean or Six Sigma tools but the identification of the culture you want and the behaviours you need to make it flourish. You will then learn how the very best organisations define and implement 4 Core Operating Systems that are designed to be both technically and behaviourally excellent. Each of these will be reviewed in depth.
The 4 Core Operating Systems (Read more)
The learning is largely gemba-based and is delivered on-site in 3 leading organisations (1 in Finland and 2 in Ireland). At each site you will have the opportunity to learn from a site tour, the tuition from Peter as well as a total of 6 gemba-based learning exercises reviewing how the organisations apply the theory in practice. You will learn by identifying strengths and opportunities at these firms within the 4 Core Operating Systems.
The program goes beyond the normal Tools & Techniques of Lean and is designed for Senior Directors and Managers and Improvement professionals looking to create sustainable success.
Learn and explore about Advanced Lean in practice, not just in the classroom by undertaking 6 gemba-based learning experiences in leading organisations.
Peter Hines has consistently been one of the top rated instructors at Aalto EE and is regarded as the #1 Lean expert in Europe.
Come to the Advanced Lean Masterclass if you aspire to create a sustainable Lean Program. Find “the missing element in Lean” and understand the conditions that enable you to take your own Lean Program from being good to being truly excellent. The training will give you the knowledge of how to do this through gemba-based learning exercises reviewing how leading organisations apply the theory in practice.

Senior Directors and Managers, Improvement Agents such as Lean Coaches from any industry who aspire to the best.
