According to Steve Boam, CEO of Develop Consulting, Lean principles will be at the heart of the consulting firm’s new e-learning line.
“As a consultancy, we work with amazing brands to help them improve their organizations, streamline processes and introduce efficiency using Lean methodology,” Boam explained. “Within these organizations, we also support and coach amazing people who want to learn and grow, grow their teams, and foster a culture of continuous learning.”
The last two years of the pandemic have seen a significant increase in the use of e-learning services, as well as working from home.
