The main obstacles to achieving a Lean Transformation are often due to a social, rather than a technical, nature. To overcome these obstacles we must a build a constructive team spirit that is open to change. This can be achieved through activities that involve collaborating with others, while having fun and raising awareness of the opportunities in play. The Lean Business Game developed by Lenovys is the first step to overcoming the fear of change, allowing the team to experience what it means to improve a production process using Lean Thinking principles.

Through a series of simulations, participants will be able to understand the potential benefits for the company and their everyday work, leading them clearly to the cultural change required for any Lean Transformation. In addition to experimenting with Lean principles, the participants will have an extraordinary team building experience that will leave a lasting impression according to testimonies received from past participants.
