Converting non-productive time into customer-focused, productive time enables any organization to grow revenue faster than cost. This course prepares participants to implement tools of the waste-minimizing Lean problem-solving methodology, resulting in lower costs, increased customer satisfaction, better on-time performance, and higher quality. Candidates will learn how to craft a data-driven business case built on root cause analysis to support process improvement recommendations.
Specific Lean concepts and tools covered include:
All sessions are packed with a mix of theory and practice, incorporating a Kaizen simulation, building a value stream map, and other hands-on activities. The program emphasizes how Lean concepts and tools work together, and why each is important. Candidates hear real examples of challenges faced during Lean implementation. They learn about the importance of using metrics to measure improvements.
The final session includes a complete program review and project progress report-out.
Certification requires passing a final exam and completing a successful Lean project at the candidate’s place of work or a qualified host company/organization (candidate must secure arrangements). Successful projects require access to relevant personnel and data.
* Note: A CLP Plus version includes an additional four hours of one-on-one coaching. Our experience indicates that project success correlates with the level of internal expertise and support. Extra hours are invaluable to candidates who may lack internal support and/or guidance within their organizations. Coaching may take place at your location or another venue.
