A3 Document Types & Uses
To help you learn and apply Lean Thinking and Practice to your work, we are putting key subject materials around the Lean Transformation Framework in one place for our customers.
We want to reduce your non-value added time, by providing the right information at the right time and at the right place so individuals & organisations can develop a thorough knowledge of Lean Thinking and Practice.
You may be here because you want to start or further develop your skills on problem solving or A3 Thinking.
Whatever the reason, we hope to encourage the lean community to become effective learners for life. Focusing on your skill development rather than training completion or certification!
– David Brunt CEO Lean Enterprise Academy
To develop your thinking & practice through each skill level we use a Four Step “Guided Learning Path” which follows the Plan-Do-Check-Act cycle.
Learn more about the approach by clicking the Lean Learning Journey button on the right:
