The program develops your knowledge, confidence, and skill to lead a Lean initiative in your environment – building your execution and sustainment capabilities.
     
    An action-oriented curriculum with simulations and case study-based classroom sessions coupled with small group exercises, hands-on ‘go-do’ sessions, and project work. This format allows for practical application of the techniques being learned, helping to translate theory into action.
     
    A comprehensive curriculum covering both the production (technical) and management (social) elements needed for a successful, sustainable Lean program.

    PROGRAM OBJECTIVES

    You will learn to:

    • Align organizational goals on critical objectives and translate them into improvement actions at all levels
    • See and address waste in your current processes by using your “Lean mindset” and the principles and tools of Lean, and create business cases for change
    • Build improvement plans that drastically accelerate processes and improve reliability
    • Support natural teams and project teams in the application of lean techniques
    • Create a daily management system to keep projects on track and moving forward

     
    A collaborative partnership between instructor and participant
    The program is taught by experienced practitioners bringing a depth and wealth of subject knowledge and implementation experience to the program. This experience allows us to connect program learning to situations encountered in client work as well as to your real-life challenges and environment.

    A consultant on call
    The program instructors remain available to assist you with your project work between classroom sessions and after graduation from the program.

    Immediate return on investment – Program Project
    Class project work directly tied to your operational improvement strategy brings immediate benefits to your organization. Past participants have achieved impressive results from their project.

    Most every participant achieves audited savings from the program’s project in excess of the registration fee. On a few occasions the cost savings achieved have topped 1M dollars.

    An environment conducive for learning
    Held at the Fisher College of Business on the Campus of The Ohio State University, the program has the perfect environment for learning with state-of-the-art classrooms, convenient accommodations, and on-campus amenities.
