"UniSA provides Air Force with a successful program of Executive Change Leadership. UniSAs staff worked collaboratively with the Air Force Improvement team to develop a course which leveraged off existing material but adapted to specific Air Force delivery and content requirements. The facilitators delivered a quality product and were able to successfully address the varied challenges of senior staff about to commence on the change journey and the adoption of the Lean Enterprise approach as the core methodology for improvement."

Very eye opening; on the verge of life-changing. Really amazing history to technical understanding to real world examples.

Alister did an incredible job leading the course and facilitating discussion. I would recommend this course to everyone – it is applicable to all aspects of business and life in general. 10/10

I found the course very informative and interesting.  The lecturer was knowledgeable and shared many experiences with us which I could relate to.  The tools and techniques and what to put to good use.

Overall a very worthwhile course which I intend to put to good use.

The course provides the fundamental approach for Lean organisational transformation. I gained most benefit from the holistic approach of organisational strategy in regard to Lean as an improvement that is continuous and ongoing. The importance of aligning Lean initiatives to organisational objectives including change and people strategies. Practical exercises and case studies enhance the learning of the process and benefit that can be gained, over and above what we think we can see!

Very experienced course presenter Alister is fundamental in the ‘real’ scenario, learnings and knowledge factor of the course.

Highly recommended."
