Lean for Individuals

You have come to Cycle Time Management’s Web Site to get information on a Lean Tool – which is what is taught in courses designed for individuals, and not implemented holistically in a company. The fact that you have come is good, it is very good. It means that you want to improve, to grow, to learn.

If you currently work for a company, we have great news for you!

Turning Vision into Reality

Lean is a continuous focus to maximize Customer Value while minimizing Waste. Lean means a never ending journey of creating more value for customers while using fewer resources.

Lean Tools vs. Lean Thinking

The ultimate Lean objective is to provide perfect Value to the customer through a perfect Value Creation Process with Zero Waste.

To accomplish this, application of Lean Tools, without first understanding Lean Thinking will create sustainability issues. This is where many individuals and organizations embarking upon a lean journey have failed. One of the numerous reasons for failing is the lack of communication between management and production.

That’s where Lean Thinking comes into play, Lean Thinking helps an organization eliminate waste. In contrast to teaching Lean Tools to individuals, we implement Lean Thinking holistically into the company to overcome all obstacles and ensure success.

A Lean Thinking Organization needs to understand and work towards Customer Value and to focus its Processes, People and Quality to seamlessly work together to continuously increase it.

CTM’s Lean Framework

CTM’s Lean Framework emulates the lean journey that Toyota has been following for the past 65 plus years.

It allows an organization to create its own Lean Management System by development its employees through the knowledge transfer of Lean Thinking.

This is how you can improve, grow, learn…

To get Your Organization Lean Thinking print the Lean Belt Training Brochure (link to brochure attached) and give it to Your Company’s Management. This gives you the opportunity to have your training paid for, while also greatly benefiting the company you work when they implement Lean Thinking.

Have your training paid for by your employer!
