Middle East


LGN institutes and partners have been active throughout the Middle East and Gulf Region for over a decade. Currently we have institutes in two countries – Turkey and Israel. We are in the process of developing working relationships with lean practitioners, universities and associations in other parts of the region such as Dubai, Kuwait, and Egypt to name a few examples. We recognize there is growing interest in the region for more lean knowledge and technical support.

Our goal for advancing lean thinking and practice throughout the region is to identify like-minded lean thinkers and practitioners and facilitate connections and learning opportunities among interested companies, institutions and individuals. Our approach is to provide a unified and coordinated strategy to advance lean thinking in the region through selective education and awareness activities, as well as engage in co-learning projects and partnerships.

Our development activities in the Middle East are led by Yalcin Ipbuken of Lean Institute Turkey.

If you or your organization would like to learn more about our activities in the region, please contact us at info@leanglobal.org or reach out to Yalcin directly.
