Luton Productivity Programme

This programme is now closed.

The University of Bedfordshire partnered with Luton Council to support local businesses.

Our free, accredited Lean training (normally costing £2,700) focused on how to apply Lean principles in the real world. It applied to every kind of business, changing how you look at yourself and your organisation - businesses were immediately able to apply the principles and knowledge to their work environment.

Businesses could send up to FOUR members of staff on the globally recognised Lean Thinking 2-day course and ONE member of senior staff on the 4-day Lean Six Sigma Green Belt course - FOR FREE. NO CATCH.

Who was it for?

This programme was aimed at Luton based organisations of any size and from any sector.

Benefits to the business

During the course, individuals learned to recognise waste (wasted time, wasted effort, wasted money, wasted resources) and understand the roadmap to optimise processes in a targeted manner.

Other benefits included routes to new funding & inward investment; staff development; new product & process ideas; and business growth.
