A Lean Practitioner training course available online in Virtual Classroom and in-person.
This highly interactive 3-day Lean Practitioner training course will enable anyone seeking improvements to analyse their own processes and identify waste, using a comprehensive set of Lean tools and techniques. A tool that will be covered in depth is Value Stream Mapping, enabling organisations to map the steps taken for materials and information to reach a finished product or service. After mapping a process delegates will learn to apply ‘Lean thinking’ and identify non-customer value adding tasks, adapt the process ‘flow’ and create a more efficient system. Other tools covered range from 5S, which is used to improve the efficiency and organisation of workspaces, to Kanban, enabling customer driven process flow.
Delegates will apply this Lean knowledge and practice their skills through interactive workshops guided by a Lean Six Sigma expert. On completion of this Lean course, newly trained Lean practitioners will be able to confidently apply Lean tools and techniques to make immediate and continuous improvements in their workplaces.
