Lean Enterprise Project Certificate Descriptions:


Lean Overview

Introducing a systematic approach to eliminating waste within the office is becoming an effective extension of lean strategies. Identify and understand value from the customer’s perspective and the eight common forms of waste that impede good flow. Learn the basics of 6S visual management, the application of flow, and how lean impacts an organization’s current work processes.

Lean Culture & Value Stream Mapping

Benefit from gaining an understanding of organizational value streams and lean culture. This session focuses on how value stream mapping sets the stage for beginning a lean implementation. It also addresses why a lean transformation requires creating, building and sustaining an organization-wide improvement environment. The understanding of these foundational lean tenets will identify opportunities for improvement and ready your organization for transformation.


Rapid Improvement Event Preparation & Facilitation

Rapid improvement or kaizen activities which implement change in organization processes are one of the most important elements in a successful lean implementation. Explore all the elements of preparing for and running a lean event. Roles are outlined and data gathering strategies are explored to help facilitators and team leaders understand the various roles and requirements.

Standard Work & Visual Management

Standard work is central to achieving and sustaining a lean environment because it outlines best practices and assures adherence to those standards. The adaptation of standard work and visual management techniques allows you to easily see variation in process and opportunities for improvement. Attend this seminar to learn how to implement and successfully use these techniques.

Lean Project & Instructor Support

Lean is a 'learn by doing' strategy and learning from others is a key component. Individually scope and implement a project with instructor support. Project presentations include information on project selection, data gathering, event planning or any component of the seminar material. The seminar includes two hours per participant of consultation and/or a site visit between 'Lean Overview' and 'Lean Project' seminars.
