Improving Training with Lean

Is Your Organization Learning at the Speed of Lean?

Training is the least efficient and most ineffective process you’ll find in most organizations. Employees spend hundreds, even thousands, of hours in classes or online with little to show for it. This “learning burden” takes valuable time away from creating and delivering real customer value.

Head Maverick Todd Hudson pioneered the application of Lean to workplace learning. We can teach you how to reduce your organization’s learning burden, eliminate “training waste” and get people to proficiency at lightning speed.

We offer fully customized workshops, one-on-one coaching and even green and black belt certifications in improving training with Lean.

“I loved Todd’s workshop! So many of my L&D projects came flooding back during the activity. It was like revisiting some of the most stressful aspects of the last 10 years…and that is a GOOD thing! What a great argument for not only adopting Lean as a practice, but also seeing the real value of informal learning.”

“I recently participated in Todd’s Learning at the Speed of Lean workshop. Todd is a dynamic, passionate, and effective facilitator. I was truly amazed at how much ground we covered in an hour! He gave a focused overview of Lean with excellent examples from his long experience, and got us (a large group) on our feet working together to think and talk about how Lean applies to learning delivery. I love Todd’s energy, enthusiasm, and depth of knowledge – personally it has opened my eyes to the possibilities of Lean in a new way.”

“Todd provided an excellent overview of the Lean practice. He is a very engaging facilitator who caters an interactive presentation to the needs of the audience. Todd introduced a group of L&D professionals to some basic concepts, then had us complete a value stream exercise around the intake process for a training request, so we could start to better understand the Lean practice and how it can apply to any business. This was the most valuable two-hour Lean intro session I’ve experienced.”

The Learning at the Speed of Lean workshop at ATD Cascadia was an extremely relevant course. Todd Hudson is a dynamic facilitator and I have long been a fan of The Maverick Institute, but this seminar was a way to actually get my hands on the concepts rather than just reading and dreaming. There is nothing passive about the experience – you are actually working in teams to map out the process flow of designing a learning experience, from conception through post training evaluations. I was able to immediately take away a process to quantify the need to change some of the ways we deliver training. There were a few forehead slapping moments and it was really pretty fun too! I highly recommend this workshop to anyone interested in getting more out of their training programs.

“I attended Todd’s Lean training class and was astounded at the ideas I took away. He was clear about how to eliminate waste in training classes, made it easy to learn – fun videos, and was great at helping the group re-think how training can make a difference. It was a GREAT class….”

~ Founder, consulting company

“Todd Hudson’s workshop on applying Lean principles to the training arena was extraordinary.  After just 15 minutes, I began experiencing ‘aha moments’ that lasted throughout the session. His well-articulated perspective has already made a positive difference in how I approach, design, and deliver training.”
