Lean Enterprise Institute, USA
The Lean Enterprise Institute, Inc. (LEI) is a nonprofit research, education and publishing institute with the goal of making things better through Lean thinking and practice. Through co-learning partnerships with leading universities, companies and organizations across all sectors, and with an online community of 300,000+, we gather the best in Lean learning and share it with you.
LEI grew out of the MIT research team that was responsible for coining the term â€œlean productionâ€ to describe the revolutionary production and management system they identified at Toyota, as explained in the groundbreaking book The Machine That Changed the World (Womack, Jones, & Roos). Director of the research initiative, Dr. James P. Womack, established LEI in 1997 to share these principles and practices with the world. Today LEI is led by John Shook, Toyotaâ€™s first American manager in Japan and one of the people responsible for bringing TPS / TMS to the United States at NUMMI.
LEI is the proud cofounder and sponsor of the Lean Education Academic Network, the ThedaCare Center for Healthcare Value / Healthcare Value Network, the Lean Product and Process Development Network, and the Lean Global Network.
