About the Lean Manager Training Program 

This course is for Continuous Improvement professionals who wish to learn how to improve processes by using Lean methods and tools.  Lean Management is the method which creates an efficient process flow by eliminating non-value adding activities.

“When you focus on costs, quality decreases. When you focus on quality, costs decrease.”

There are 7 types of non-value adding activities recognised in Lean Management:

  1. Transportation
  2. Stock
  3. Motion
  4. Waiting
  5. Processing (too difficult)
  6. Overproduction (too much or too soon)
  7. Defects

The Lean Management methodology contains a 5-step model to eliminate these wastes and optimise business processes.

  • Step 1: Identify value
  • Step 2: Create a Value Stream Map
  • Step 3: Create Flow
  • Step 4: Create Pull
  • Step 5: Strive for Excellence

The course is a combination of a practical simulation and the Lean Management theory. Based on these 5 steps, a simulated process will be optimised by the delegates. By applying the theory in practice, the delegate will experience the application of Lean Management.

The Lean Manager 3-day course follows the international ISO18404 standard which details the competencies required for a certified Lean Manager.
