Successful Lean Transformations require leaders with a solid comprehension of the lean philosophy and the lean tools. They must understand their function and leadership's role in crafting the culture that ensures lasting change. The Lean Green Belt course will produce company leaders capable of fully supporting the improvement efforts. The 5-day course is loaded with practical examples, breakout sessions, and hands-on exercises to engage students and practice the concepts in a classroom environment. Case studies will also challenge the students to apply the management and cultural issues discussed in a group.

Lean Green Belt covers a multitude of lean processes and tools, including:

  • 5S and VSM
