A center for training and digital transformation
Founded in 2011 as an experiential training center
The aim was to provide manufacturing and service companies with the necessary skills to achieve operational excellence and successfully implement digital transformation through an effective combination of scientific approach and practical experience.
Over the years, LEF has established itself as the world’s largest and most integrated digital model company, becoming a leading competence center for human capital development and a member of several international networks in the fields of Industry 4.0, digital innovation and lean.
