Lean Café - sharing lean thinking in a friendly atmosphere
The EU-Japan Centre invites you to join us at our virtual Lean Café. We hold occasional sessions (via Zoom) to discuss and share lean thinking. There are no participation costs, but you do need to sign up in advance. 536 people attended the first 12 Lean Café sessions.
Lean Café sessions are only open to people working for companies or organisations registered in an EU27 member-state or in Iceland, Liechtenstein or Norway.
We are currently planning future sessions of the Lean Café and when they are confirmed we will post details of them on this page and also let anyone who has registered with the Café know.
In the meantime, why not "get back to the Gemba" and join us for a physical Lean in Europe visit?
