ABOUT THE COURSE

Our 4-day Lean Project Practitioner Course is a practical course that teaches the fundamentals of Lean and how to use the approach to transform service operations. It is suitable for all individuals who are interested in discovering how to successfully implement Lean practices into organisations, and more particularly people from operations or
developing improvement practitioners.

Through many practical exercises, our course introduces a different methodology to the traditional Lean manufacturing approach and focusses on how to implement Operational Excellence in either a back or front office environment.

The course also builds the required skills to initiate change such as business analysis, implementation design, coaching peers and selling and presenting the benefits of change.

The practical aspect of the course and the post-training project assessment (optional) highly benefit both the learners and their employers, with post-training projects typically delivering financial benefits in excess of £30,000 (based on averages 2012-2018).
