Abstract
Today, companies are faced with decreasing profit margins due to economic crisis and global
competition. At the same time, in many higher educational institutions, students attend rather
unattractive courses by sitting and listening to lecturers teaching ex-cathedra. This paper describes
how Lean Learning Academy, an innovative training programme on lean manufacturing, can
contribute to the competitiveness of companies, to the employability of employees and students, to the
motivation of students, and to the attractiveness of engineering curricula. The training programme can
be considered as a successful innovative alternative for the traditional way of teaching.
