This course prepares participants to implement tools of the waste-minimizing Lean methodology, resulting in cost reduction, increased customer satisfaction, cycle-time reduction and standardized high quality.
Specific Lean tools covered include:
All sessions are packed with a mix of theory and practice. The course encompasses a Kaizen simulation, problem solving, project charters, change management and team leadership skills. 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.
