For organizations to be successful, change must be both intentional and continuous. LEAN is a systematic approach to identifying and eliminating waste or non-value activities in a process through continuous improvement with the goal of creating maximum value.
Lean certification is about building those skills in critical thinking and problem solving that are proven catalysts for creating strategic organizations. The lean tools build capacity in designing/leading effective change initiatives, promote creativity (ideas that are novel and useful) and spur innovation. Ultimately, they build mastery in the area of process thinking. This leads to a comprehensive organizational change approach and a continuous improvement mind-set.
These highly participative programs are for people that have responsibilities for developing teams, managing people and processes and have accountability for results. Lean introduces participants to the concepts and tools that will help make them successful now and in the future as change and process improvement takes hold. The key ingredients of the competencies required to create a culture of improvement leading to world class results will be explored.
This course is applicable to every employee in an organization. Upon completion of a White Belt program, participants will be able to understand the language of Lean thinking, Lean Principles and the application of introductory Tools for identifying and eliminating waste.
At this level of certification participants become skillful with the processes and tools of Lean by completing an applied project. After completing the online White Belt course, participants come together as an in-class cohort and deepen the learning with the additional of new tools/topics. By actively engaging with the methodology, participants learn how lean can create value by eliminating the activities that consume resources or which add cost or time without an increase in value. As part of the Yellow Belt Certification, participants receive personal mentoring and coaching during the project stage.

Upon completion of the Green Belt Certification program, participants will be able to execute continuous improvement projects as part of their overall jobs.

Certification will be awarded when the participants have demonstrated the level of mastery expected at a Green Belt level. Extensive coaching will be provided as part of on-going project support.
