To help manage the cost of change within any organization it makes sense to acquire in-house knowledge and skills to be used where and when the organization needs it, for a fraction of the cost of third-party trainers.
Kaizen Certification is designed to teach in-house Lean Coordinators the art of reading a Current State Map, determining what improvements are needed to achieve the Future State and how and where to use the tool of Kaizen to accomplish this task.
This course is designed to do just that. Designed around the “tell, show, do” model of adult learning, your in-house individuals will be taught, shown how to and actually facilitate a series of Kaizen events to build their knowledge, skills and confidence to maintain their own continuous improvement program within your organization. Upon completion of the course they will be completely competent as Kaizen Facilitators and well on their way to becoming recognized as Lean Experts in your company.
The course duration is half a day. The course will consist of a lecture presentation format with open discussion around participant’s particular situations.
