Oscar Roche

Director, Trainer & Mentor

“Oscar makes (lean) principles and philosophies consumable.”

“Oscar – One of my very favorite things about you is your willingness to seek input and comment for all those you work with & keep me in my place (lol).”

Pat Geary, COO Story Construction Iowa.

Oscar Roche believes strongly that excellence in business lies in the development of people capability. It is this belief, combined with extensive operations management experience, that permits him to add value to any organisation he works with.

Across Australia, New Zealand, South East Asia and the US, Oscar specialises in developing the:

  • 3 TWI (Training Within Industry) frontline leadership skills of Leading, Instructing and Improving.
  • Scientific thinking learning patterns outlined in ‘Toyota Kata’ (Mike Rother).


Oscar believes passionately that frontline leaders have been ignored for many years and it is high time to now support their development in order for businesses to survive and develop. The practical nature of the TWI and Toyota Kata programs makes them the ideal vehicle to build leader capability development. So much so, that Oscar practices the skills in his everyday working life.

Oscar is a regular speaker at TWI and Toyota Kata summits and conferences in the US and Europe and a frequent presenter of webinars through Lean Frontiers.

When contacted mid 2021 by Darrin Mitchell, head of Mitchell Industries, and invited to be a ‘Manufacturing Masters Expert’ he gratefully said ‘yes please’.
