What does a Lean Practitioner do?

A Lean Practitioner participates in Lean improvement activities, typically on a part time basis as part of their overall role. They will work to implement improvements in the local area, use workplace layout techniques to improve process flow, lead improvement activities and quantify benefits delivered. In addition Lean Practitioners may also coach or train Lean Improvement Team members on process improvement methods and activities. ISO 18404:2015 outlines the Lean Practitioner competencies.
