1. Inventory Management: The Nuts and Bolts: Manage Your Inventory Accurately and Effectively

No business can survive very long without an effective program of controls over the parts and materials that are used in producing or distributing goods and services of the firm. This course will teach you how to effectively manage these items, which are collectively referred to as “inventory.”

In this course, you will learn about all aspects of inventory management, including common terms, the inventory cycle, how to maintain inventory accuracy, and what some of the latest trends are.

2. Risk Management: Learn The Most Essential Part Of Project Management

Risk management has long been an essential part of project management, but it has also become an increasingly important part of organizational best practices. This course will introduce you to the basic principles of risk management.

In this course, you will learn about the seven R’s and four T’s that traditionally represent the key activities of risk management. This will give you a framework that you can customize for a single project, a department, or an entire company.

3. Employee Accountability: Explore What Accountability Is All About

Organizations who promote accountability are more successful and more productive. This course gives workplace leaders techniques for promoting accountability in their organization, starting with themselves.

You will begin this course by exploring what accountability is all about and some recent events that have caused people to look at accountability more closely. Then, you’ll learn ways to build accountability and ownership in your organization and make yourself more accountable. Supporting skills, like goal setting, feedback, and delegation, are also covered.

4. Encouraging Sustainability and Social Responsibility in Business: Learn Basics Of Corporate Social Responsibility

Today’s leading businesses realize that there is more to their bottom line than financial success. Thriving businesses also ensure that the people and environment in the areas that they operate benefit from their presence. Corporate social responsibility programs and sustainability practices can help build true profitability that incorporates all of these elements.

This course will introduce you to the basics of sustainability and corporate social responsibility using ISO 26000 guidelines as a framework. These principles include organizational governance and ethics, operating practices, human rights and labor practices, environmental awareness and sustainability, consumer issues, and community involvement.

5. Lean Process Improvement: Learn Lean Principles To Help You Become Successful

Toyota, Boeing, and Nike are just a few organizations that have used Lean principles to help them become successful. You, too, can incorporate Lean process improvement techniques into your corporate culture to minimize waste and maximize value.

Lean principles have come a long way over the past 300 years. From Benjamin Franklin’s early ideas, to Henry Ford’s work in the 1920’s and the Toyoda precepts in the 1930’s, to Jeffery Liker’s publication of The Toyota Way in 2004, Lean processes have evolved from a simple concept to a set of widely used best practices.

This course will give participants the foundation to begin implementing Lean process improvement tools in their workplace. The first part of the course will explore the foundations of Lean through the Toyota precepts and the five critical improvement concepts (value, waste, variation, complexity, and continuous improvement). The second part of the course will give participants tools to perform continuous improvement in their organization, including 5S, 5W-2H, PDSA, DMAIC, Kaizen, Genchi Genbutsu, and various Lean data mapping methods.
