lego game

During classroom training we will practice Lean Six Sigma by playing a Lego game. The Lego game was developed by John Bicheno at the Lean Enterprise Research Center at Cardiff Business School, and later developed by Joakim Hillberg at Revere in Sweden.

The game is used by companies, universities and consultants in several countries to provide practical experience and understanding of Lean Six Sigma principles.

We also use other types of games and exercises to practice theory. The Galton board is used to understand statistical concepts and control charts.
