We use a Lego game to practice Value Stream Mapping (VSM), and play two rounds of the game during the course.
We use target figures like profit, quality, delivery rate and flow efficiency to measure the result of the game.
Between the two games, we learn to use VSM to understand the process, and practice Lean solutions to reduce waste and improve flow.
This training enables you to:
We use Lean principles and solutions to improve a Lego manufacturing process.
The game was developed by John Bicheno at the Lean Enterprise Research Center and further developed by Joakim Hillberg at Revere in Sweden.
Companies, universities and consultants from several countries use this game to provide practical experience and understanding of Lean principles.
The game will give you hands-on experience with 8 wastes, 5S, Single piece flow, batch size, changeover reduction, Takt time, workload balancing, inventory, communication and planning.

Lean Techs partner Aksena has developed a library of stand-alone, easy to use improvement tools.
The videoes give you a short and effective introduction to the relevant tool (the length varies between 40 seconds and 9 minutes). The tools support effective planning and execution of improvement workshops and activities.
Send a link to relevant tools prior to a meeting. Ask the participants to prepare. Then apply the approach suggested in the tool to achieve the meeting objectives.
Make it simple!
