LEAN PERFORMANCE U
An experiential learning program using motorsports and pit stops as tools for teaching the concepts of continuous improvement, efficiency, preparation and teambuilding.
Using a combination of classroom education and hands-on experiential learning, Lean Performance U addresses such topics as communication, role responsibility, creative thinking, and work performance through the easy to understand examples provided by the pit stop experience. For years, businesses from around the country have sent their executives to Performance Instruction & Training (PIT), located deep in the heart of NASCAR country to learn the concepts of lean manufacturing. Businesses have increased productivity by as much as 80% through the application of Lean tools.
A one-of-a-kind combination of classroom presentation, discussion, and actual pit crew activities drive home vital lean concepts. Imagine how efficient your business would be if it operated like a motorsports pit crew. Lean Performance U will teach you how to do just that by relating the concepts of the pit crew back to your business. The program challenges employees to look at Lean work modes in an entirely new way that is easily understandable.
When entering into a Lean transformation within your company, Lean Performance U can jump-start your efforts and carry employees through Lean learning whether they're line workers or top executives. The combination of classroom and hands-on learning utilizes pit stops as scenarios that speak to the challenges within your industry. The program is fully customizable to your company’s goals and learning needs.
Lean Performance U can be conducted at Performance Instruction & Training's campus or on-site at your facility. Hundreds of companies have participated, from computer chip manufacturers at Intel to the ramp supervisors at United Airlines, all with the goals of becoming more effective, efficient, and profitable by adopting the concepts afforded by pit crews.
Whether you are a new employee or an executive- all levels of the corporate ladder are welcome to participate. Individuals from a wide variety of industries (manufacturing, maintenance, healthcare, management, administrative/office, sales, military) who seek a unique perspective on introducing or re-implementing lean initiative and team building are encouraged to register.
