Lean Academy

Metis Design, in collaboration with the Lean Advancement Initiative (LAI) at MIT, administers the LAI Educational Network (EdNet). This network takes the knowledge created by MIT and associated researchers and creates practical applications, including university level curricula, training, tools, and documentation of current best practices. Some of the products of this collaboration include the LAI Lean Academy, a set of teaching materials that can be given as either a three or five day intensive course or a semester-long university course; the Lean Enterprise Value (LEV) Simulation, a powerful modular table-top simulation, which serves as the core for customized active learning experiences, from basic courses to advanced "black-belt" training, and a number of other products. Metis Design personnel also support LAI in helping LAI member companies with planning and transformation events, using proprietary LAI tools and techniques.
