The Lean Alliance is an international network of established companies in a variety of industries. These companies have chosen to implement Lean in all levels of thier organization while simultaneously sharing the experience of their lean journey with others to reach the status of a Total Lean Enterprise in a holistic and sustainable way.

We are convinced that our customers can only achieve long-term success by means of an implementation of Lean philosophy from the inside. Knowledge of the specific TPS tools can only provide short-term fixes if these tools are not integrated within a continuous improvement process, one which is implemented throughout the entire system, including all supporting functions. All of this needs to be supported by a strategically led management of change, within an environment of trust, where people are the main focus.
