Lean Management has been used in Botswana at Halfway Toyota Ngami for the last 5 years with substantial success. These successes have been recognised by the Government of Botswana and the community that Halfway Toyota operates in. To provide access to the same assistance Ngami has received it was decided that an academy be registered to formalize training and mentoring within Botswana of the Lean Principles. It is the goal of the Academy to launch an initiative that makes learning available to government departments, university students and private corporations to help drive the development of the country in the form of workshops, training courses and one on one mentoring Helping Botswana to stay stable and democratic because people have good jobs is its value driven purpose.
