About iLean

iLean was founded over 15 years ago out of the passion for changing the world of work.
They wanted to bring more effectiveness and humanity into teams through trainers and coaches and initially did this by working on Agile product development and project management with their customers. Often within IT departments and IT teams, but also outside IT. The mindset and organisational competence development that comes with it soon became their passion and focus, in addition to working with the teams themselves.

Over the years, iLean has grown to include ten experienced coaches, consultants and trainers who support companies of all sizes in their development processes towards more agile organisational competencies, agile teams, agile product development, etc.
In addition, iLean also developed a state-of-the-art acceleration programme to develop organisational competencies for (agile) team coaches.

iLean is part of the Cronos Group. Our office is located in the centre of Mechelen, opposite the railway station.
