Celebrating 12 Years of Lean Competency Accreditation

Successful Re-Accreditation of Training, Assessment & Certification Services to the Lean Competency System (licensed by Cardiff University)

S A Partners and Cardiff University – through the Lean Enterprise Research Centre and the Lean Competency System have a long-standing heritage.

After 12 years, we are now celebrating the successful re-accreditation of S A Partners Trainers, Coaches and Assessors, plus the Training, Assessment & Certification standards which align to the Lean Competency System.

This re-accreditation heralds what continues to be a productive, collaborative and mutually beneficial relationship between both parties.

The Lean Competency System Framework provides structure and rigour while simultaneously being flexible enough to accommodate the contingent needs of a diverse range of organizational clients.
