Welcome to the LCS website and to the community of practitioners who are dedicated to using lean thinking to help improve the ability of their organisations to deliver the appropriate value to their customers and stakeholders with the minimum of resources.

This website is a place where lean practitioners can come together to communicate ideas, debate issues, find information and solve problems. It encourages ‘peer-to-peer’ learning – that is, when everyone can be both a teacher and a learner –  by promoting collaboration, networking, discussion and information sharing, leveraging the collective knowledge and experience of the community. The site also provides comprehensive information on organisational lean training system accreditation and personal LCS certification.

Click on the links in the grey menu box to read more about Community Membership, Collaboration, Resources, Rules of Behaviour and Privacy Policy.

Please provide feedback on any aspect of the site – on features you think should be included, changed or areas that could be improved.

See the Frequently Asked Questions about the LCS on the FAQs page.

Website Organisation

The site is organised around the main LCS activities, accessible from the top blue bar menu, and clicking Information will reveal a sub-menu with a list of pages with resources and supporting information. The menu of the foot of the page has links to the privacy policy, newsletter sign up and contact form.

A breadcrumb trail on most pages provides orientation and an easy route back to the home page. Note that clicking on the LCS logo in the top left corner of each page will return you to the Home page and there is a Logout link in the top right corner.

You can search for news reports, videos, articles and events via the Word Cloud feature in each area - just click on a word or phrase to go to all linked items. The bigger the word or phrase, the more items are linked to it.
