Lean Management experts

Is it your ambition to make an organization excel? The Lean Practitioner course is for energetic professionals wishing to improve processes without large-scale projects. The Lean management methodology is characterized by short improvement cycles through Kaizen events and A3 project management techniques.

“If you focus on costs, quality decreases. If you focus on quality, costs decrease.”

The Lean practitioner is the driving force for Lean improvement projects and Lean implementations. A ‘hands-on’ professional with the ambition to develop the perfect process and inspire departments to do better and better every day. The Lean Practitioner has fully mastered the Lean tools, knows the Lean principles and inspires colleagues to work on improvements. Within organizations, Lean Practitioners are the specialists who, by working together, allow departments to excel and can enthusiastically pass on the principles throughout the organization. 

Lean Practitioner training

During the three-day Lean Practitioner training, we cover all the material required to improve processes according to the Lean Management methodology. Especially in environments where there is little data available and quick, small-scale improvement projects can be done, the Lean Management method is the way to go. Improve fast and often. That is what a Lean Practitioner does. The course covers all the tools and principles, such as Kaizen, the 5 steps of Womack, the 7 Wastes and A3 project management.

The topics are covered in such a practical manner that you can apply what you have learned in the field immediately. You will find more detailed information such as the program and competency overview in our prospectus.

Lean Six Sigma in your company

Although Lean Six Sigma is best known as a project-based improvement structure, it is much broader than that. Lean Six Sigma is an established philosophy, an organizational and improvement structure as well as a set of tools. Using this perspective Lean Six Sigma addresses organizational issues with respect to competitiveness, cost reduction, and customer satisfaction. 

Depending on your ambition, Lean Six Sigma can be implemented in phases. Every organization is unique, without a common blueprint that universally applies. Together with you, The Lean Six Sigma Company will develop a plan of action tailored to your organization.
