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

Continuous Improvement with Lean: Learn the Basics of Continuous Improvement Strategies

This course is an ideal choice if you’re ready to take your Lean knowledge to the next step. In it, we will explore what continuous improvement is all about and how Lean methodology can help get you there.

In this Continuous Improvement with Lean course, you will learn about developing continuous improvement strategies in the workplace using Lean methodology. The course focuses on the Identify – Plan – Execute – Review cycle, and wraps up with an in-depth case study to help you practice what you have learned.

This course will give you the skills you need to implement a Six Sigma business improvement plan to your business. You will learn what Six Sigma is and different methods to apply in a practical sense by using a set of tools. You will then wrap things up with a consideration of managing relationships with your customers, both internal and external.

Once you complete Six Sigma: Entering the Dojo your skills in this practical area of business improvement will be prepped and practiced enough to apply them in the real world. You are going to learn about the basics of Six Sigma and about various improvement tools. You will follow that up with a look at management tools for generating ideas. A look at continuous improvement is next on the agenda and the course concludes with a consideration of customer relationships.

Process Improvement with Gap Analysis: Improve Organizational Processes Through Gap Analysis

You will learn how to embrace Process Improvement with Gap Analysis during this course which provides you with the knowledge of what gap analysis is, examples, templates, and the guidance to implement an analysis in your situation.
