About | Leaning Academy


The LEANing Academy is a peer learning and mentoring platform to cultivate Lean-Agile Leaders in Africa. It responds to the need for sustained training and support for Lean-Agile professionals that goes beyond the traditional two or three-day courses.

The LEANing Academy recognises that this stuff is hard to do! Mastery requires persistence, a passion for bringing out the best in people, a respect for complexity, and a commitment to continuous improvement. It is a daunting task to do this alone or without sustained exposure to the fundamental tools and knowledge. The Academy aims to fill this learning gap.

The LEANing Academy is the creation of a small group of passionate practitioners with a shared vision to improve the performance of African businesses and the enthusiasm of the people who work in them.

Operating from Johannesburg and Cape Town, South Africa, the Academy brings together a highly experienced group of trainers and facilitators specialising in the intersecting domains of Lean, Agile, Leadership, and Change Management.
