Coaching to drive your future growth

Dr. Richard Keegan, previously of Enterprise Ireland, began a relationship with Toyota back in 2008 and has now visited over 100 times each time as enthusiastic as the first, here is what he had to say about why he was so keen to bring so many to experience a Toyota plant.

“Toyota Lean Management Centre are a group of expert enthusiasts – people who are committed to sharing their knowledge and experience of the Toyota Production System and the Toyota Way.

Based in the Toyota Deeside engine plant in North Wales they have access to a Toyota working plant, as a teaching zone. They blend classroom, hands on workshop and real shop floor experience to help you look, see and understand the Toyota approach to achieving excellence in people, process and product.

Being able to visit a working Toyota plant where English is the spoken language has proven very helpful to over 2,000 Irish people TLMC have trained since 2009.

Visiting and learning with TLMC has been a fabulous development experience for me and the many trainee visitors to the Plant, from Ireland and from across Europe.”

Courses cover a wide breadth of topics available online and face to face. We have experience working with a diverse range of clients.

If your needs are more unique, bespoke courses can be developed.

Developing people is the key to developing organisations! Engaging us to coach your leaders will accelerate your Lean journey.

The legacy of a coaching activity will be a culture which embraces change, employees who are empowered to solve problems and a deep understanding of tools which can be used to identify and eliminate waste.


Toyota Lean Management Centre will visit your site for an in-depth study to benchmark your organisation against TPS and The Toyota Way.

Available for both manufacturing and service companies.

Understanding the culture of your organisation and how lean tools are currently applied will enable us to propose an action plan tailored to your business.
