I participated in the one-day event in April 2011, and it was a fantastic workshop. Toyota is a great host and the Lean Factory Team brought a lot to the table in a short period of time. Highly recommended.

Professionals interested in manufacturing competitiveness and process improvement dream of being able to tour one of the world's leaders: Toyota. That time has arrived, with Toyota Material Handling opening its plant and training facilities for a 1-day workshop on March 6, 7 or 8, 2012. The event is being led by experts from the Lean Factory Group, a non-profit organization who's members include Toyota, Bosch Rexroth, Leonardo Group Americas and Orgatex.

The activity filled day includes a factory tour, a world-renowned Lean simulation game, a formal training session titled Sustaining Lean Improvements, and round-table discussions on Lean best practices with Toyota experts, Lean Factory Group leaders and participants. A Q&A session during the lunch period provides an open forum for questions to Toyota managers.
