Continuous Improvement Ways of Working

    Lean Competency System – Level 1B/C

    About the course

    Our 3-Day ‘Continuous Improvement Ways-of-Working’ Course aims at increasing the capability of frontline leaders to enable them to drive and sustain the implementation of an OpEx management system in every team.

    The course is designed to provide each delegate with the knowledge and the practical tools they need to align each of their team with their customers’ needs and create purposeful metrics for every team to improve performance, wherever they are based. It will also help delegates implement standard work (where appropriate) and process confirmation and enable staff to solve problems in a structured manner.

    With team leaders typically creating a 15%+ capacity within their teams by developing better working practices, this course thanks to its project-based approach, is the perfect way for your organisation to generate concrete and long-lasting benefits whilst training your staff.

    Key Benefits

    • Individuals will be able to follow a structured improvement approach to tackle larger problems
    • They will be able to coach colleagues in an improvement mindset

    The ‘Continuous Improvement Ways-of-Working’ Course is a 3-day course run in-house, exclusively for your staff.
