LEAN FOR LEADERS

OVERVIEW

Lean is a proven strategy for maximizing the potential of staff to deliver more value to the customer and to do this in less time, with less effort. The core concepts of Lean are to create better flow of information, product or service and to spend more time adding value and less time on wasteful activity. Lean has been successfully applied in all sectors and all sizes of business, to deliver significant improvements in productivity, quality, safety and morale.

Please note that employers enrolling employees in the program may be eligible for reimbursement under Canada-Provincial Job Grants. Contact your local CME representative for more information.

UPDATED CANCELLATION POLICY
In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, CME has adjusted our cancellation policies to allow members the greatest flexibility to put health and safety first while benefiting from the world-class training CME provides. Cancellations received in writing 10 days prior to the first day of the course will be reimbursed 100 per cent of the purchase price. Cancellations received fewer than 10 business days are eligible for a 50 per cent reimbursement. Participants who are not able to attend an in-person session due to illness or self-isolation will be offered the opportunity to participate virtually where possible, or to send a delegate in their stead (for single-day sessions or where missed day occurs on day one of a multi-day course).

Where neither is an option, CME will apply a credit or allow the participant to re-enroll at a later session start date to continue their learning at no additional cost.

WHAT OTHERS ARE SAYING

“This was amazing learning! We were able to use our own real life company issues in a very well planned out and strategic path to learning the key elements of Lean and more importantly the HOW of Lean. We will definitely be moving forward to adopt more protocols and will continue to grow our current and future leaders through Lean courses and CME offerings.”
