As a spin-off from the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Lausanne, LAA aims to conduct cutting-edge research to discover the trends, challenges, and business impact when organizations implement lean thinking in the innovation process. We believe our research can raise the awareness and inspire practitioners around the world to start or refresh their ongoing lean journey to become better, faster and more customer-centric through the implementation of lean innovation best practices.
We work hard to discover, analyze, document, publish and diffuse the trends and best practices from companies that are implementing lean thinking in the innovation process. These latter research outcomes have also been the basis for the creation of different training modules to develop talent in organizations interested in starting or reviving their lean journey with the latest lean tools and methods. We deliver our trainings courses using gamification in order to maximize the learning outcomes and participants engagement.
