EXPERIENCE BEST PRACTICE IN ACTION
VISIT THE BEST IN YOUR INDUSTRY
Exclusively for you, we are opening the gates to excellent businesses – our BestPractice partners. Benefit from case studies of successful businesses in the industry on their journey with Lean philosophy — from the first projects they implemented all the way to developing holistic value-added and management systems.
During your individual BestPractice visits, you will gain insights into what can happen when you launch lean
management at your company too. You will be able to discuss issues with our partners in constructive detail and benefit from their experiences, successes and missteps. You can compare, assess and extrapolate your own ideas and approaches that are relevant to your particular situation and challenges. If you wish, this can take place with the support of our experts — custom-tailored to your requests and specifications.
All BestPractice visits can also take place in virtual form on request and are tailored to your individual needs.

For our BestPractice tours, we create an intense schedule of specialist topics with a specific focus and a set agenda. Areas of focus can include lean management in MSEs, smart factories or lean leadership. These multi-day benchmark tours to highly respected leaders in lean philosophy are open to all participants. Presentations, audits, participation in live discussions and factory tours will allow you
to experience how you can work successfully according to the lean management philosophy. An open exchange of ideas with executives and CIP experts from the host company will give you inspiration.
For certain tours, you can also receive credit points towards becoming a Certified Lean Leader.
OUR PARTNERS ARE YOUR PARTNERS TOO
The best proof of the effectiveness of lean management can be found in the companies who have successfully implemented Lean and continue to develop on an upwards trajectory.
Here they are: our BestPractice partners – market leaders, technology leaders and hidden champions. And world-class representatives of lean transformation.
ABOUT OUR BEST PRACTICE PARTNER CIRCLE
With the best partners we make Lean Transformation transparent.
Our BestPractice Partner Circle represents companies that have created lighthouses and BestPractice solutions in their organization and processes.
In the holistic interaction of lean mechanisms, these companies are regarded as pioneers in terms of value creation.
The focus is on “moving forward” in a spirit of partnership.
The transformation of a company or the introduction of Lean Management require a common picture in the management circle of where the company should develop. The most sustainable method to set your own improvement process in motion or to revive it with fresh accents is to maintain the view and exchange of ideas among the best in the industry.
Our customers experience BestPractice live at and with our partners during visits and seminars. They evaluate and compare what they see on site – supported by our Staufen companions. The focus is on constructive exchange. Our partners benefit from the derivation of their own new solutions for their lean transformation.
