Many courses teach advanced Lean concepts but leave out the necessary skills for aligning Lean activities with strategic objectives, solving real process problems and continuously improving operations. The Advanced Lean course moves beyond knowledge into the realm of application—teaching you advanced techniques that you can apply in any industry.
Designed to move quickly beyond the theory of Lean, this course has a major focus on value stream assessment skills—how to identify and remove waste in a process and ensure that it doesn’t creep back into the process. You’ll learn how to apply such advanced Lean tools as Fast Changeover, Kanban (pull systems) and TPM (Total Productive Maintenance). In addition, you’ll more deeply explore basic Lean concepts like mistake proofing, visual control and 5S to uncover opportunities and make improvements that align with strategic objectives.
A distinguishing feature of this course is that it gives you a proven method for running Lean Kaizen events, using the SCORE roadmap, along with all the usable Excel worksheets you’ll need to engage in these events. Read “Leading Lean Kaizen Improvements” for more on SCORE.
Group and individual exercises and simulations ensure learning is engaging and effective. Instructors also tailor their examples to participants—whether from service, manufacturing, healthcare or transactional environments—and will illustrate techniques by showing how they apply directly to challenges faced by participants. Peer-to-peer learning further reinforces application as professionals share their unique perspectives, projects and experience.
Upon completion of this course, participants will be able to:
- Understand how waste, value-added and non- value-added activities affect process efficiency.
- Scope Lean projects that align with business objectives.
- Contribute to Kaizen events as a highly knowledgeable team member or co-leader.
- Apply the right combination of Lean tools to solve an array of business issues in any industry.
- Assess process value streams in greater depth for optimal efficiency.
- Understand the steps of the SCORE roadmap for running Kaizen events.
