The Australasian Production and Inventory Control Society Ltd (apicsAU) will collaborate with LEI Group (part of the Leading Edge Group of companies) to offer online and instructor-led education and training programs to organisations and individuals across Australia. "The opportunity to collaborate and partner with apicsAU – an Australian society that has a long and solid track record of providing best-practice training and professional development to practitioners in supply chain management – is hugely important for our continued growth in the Australian market," said Joe Aherne, CEO of Leading Edge Group. "This strategic partnership will provide academic recognition for participants on our programs across sectors and further establishes us as a knowledge leader in the area of continuous improvement." Mr Aherne stressed that this strategy of partnership is a core element of LEI Group's success in Australia, having already established a successful relationship in the healthcare space with the Australian Healthcare & Hospitals Association (AHHA). With offices in Australia, Canada, Ireland, and the UK, the Leading Edge Group has a strong international presence. It works in partnership with a number of academic and professional bodies internationally to provide accredited Lean certification programs and companywide Lean transformations. "We are delighted to have the opportunity to work with LEI Group. Our partnership enables us to provide supply chain professionals with Lean skills that are more and more relevant and sought after across the supply chain sector and the members we serve," said Linda Henry, program manager at apicsAU. "The partnership further builds on the offerings that our Chapters provide in supply chain best practice throughout our country. The Lean methodology has become hugely important as a core competency recognised and required across industry so being able to provide entire spectrum of Lean education programs – from beginner to advanced – means we will be able to meet the needs of all organisations and individuals, regardless of where they are on their continuous improvement journey."
