The evolution of eLearning, over the last number of decades has led to the emergence of powerful tools, capable of supporting the delivery of education in the workplace. A number of underpinning frameworks have been proposed for technology enhanced learning. This paper describes the development and evaluation of an eLearning framework that enables individual transformation leading to optimised enterprise performance. It furthermore explores the potential of technology enhanced learning as an enabler of individual and organisational transformation through Lean thinking and thus enterprise performance optimisation. Using an action research approach, the proposed framework has been instantiated and rigorously evaluated in two industry focused educational programmes in the lean domain over the last six years. The requirements and feedback from the large organisation and the SME sector are identified, analysed and included in the iterative development and evaluation of the framework.
