BPI Group was established in 2008 as a local representative of the British NAc Group to implement a project to transform the production system of PJSC Nord (Donetsk). NAc Group works in the field of professional training and personnel development for industrial enterprises, and is a partner of Nissan Motor Co UK. As part of the project, all of the group’s production facilities were transformed over four years. Also, the Academy of Lean Manufacturing Professionals was created. More than 100 foremen and production managers were trained there.

The exposure to the best practices of British colleagues and the experience gained during this time became the basis for the further development of the company as a separate consulting organization. The Business Process Improvement Group now provides training and consulting services in operations management and process optimization.


In 2012, we were accredited by the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development under the “Business Advisory Services” program and the first independent project was launched.

In 2020, we became part of a holding company CDI Global (South Africa), whose techniques for creating a high-performance manufacturing culture are known around the world and are used by companies such as Imperial Tobacco, Louis-Dreyfus Group, Nestle, SAB Miller, BHP Billiton and GKN. The geography of successful cases of transformation using the methodology of Mission Directed Work Teams includes more than 70 countries and more than 5000 thousand production units and is now available to customers in Ukraine.

Our team has implemented dozens of projects in Ukraine and abroad. Here are a few of them:

Staff training

We have created several unique training products of our own. In 2013, together with the PwC Academy in Ukraine, Lean Six Sigma Yellow / Green Belt certification training courses were launched. More than 300 people were trained in this program.

In 2019, we were the first in the post-Soviet space to receive the status of an affiliated training provider Shingo Institute (USA), whose Shingo Prize is the “Nobel” in Operational Excellence. Training in world-renowned management training programs and expertise of the Shingo Institute is now available to our clients in Ukraine and the CIS.

Our initiatives

In 2016, thanks to the support of the expert community, we created LeanForum – a platform for sharing experience and best practices in operational management. Since then, the LeanForum conferences, held annually, have become known not only in Ukraine but also far beyond its borders. Our business tours of global companies’ production facilities were visited by more than a thousand business representatives. For many, they were the impetus for reaching new heights in business.
