University of Kentucky

Overview

The University of Kentucky’s Lean Systems Program is the only provider of True Lean™ training and services. In 1994, it established a partnership with Toyota to both research and share the Toyota Production System with interested organizations outside of Toyota. This partnership is ongoing and it is able to teach the lean best practices used by Toyota today. Instructors are retired Toyota executives and managers, or experienced graduates of its academic program.  Courses are offered both on campus and on site and can be customized to meet your needs. University of Kentucky offers in-facility coaching and other services to follow-up and assist you to build your own sustainable True Lean™ culture. Rather than simply covering lean tools, its program is focused on teaching you the lean principles and practices that lead to long-term success.
