Lean thinking has become an enterprise-wide philosophy and a business improvement system that, when applied successfully, can tap into innovative thinking, break down barriers to resolve key issues and deliver extraordinary results. Through this short program, you will learn strategic and tactical techniques to apply lean management within your own workplace. These courses provide the skills needed to apply lean management across all industries and sectors from health to IT to nonprofit to oil and gas. This program will prepare you for the Lean Bronze Certificate (LBC) which is designed by the following organizations: the Society of Manufacturing Engineers (SME), the association for Manufacturing Excellence (AME), the American Society for Quality (ASQ), and The Shingo Prize for Operational Excellence. This alliance has established the standard for continuous improvement and Lean practices.
