OVERVIEW

This intermediate-level course helps to further enhance the skills needed to apply core Lean principles in the workplace. This “learning by doing” style of Lean certification program is delivered by Lean Blackbelt certified coaches. Structured into three week-long modules, participants will develop and improve their presentation, communication, teamwork, facilitation and problem solving skills through group exercises, simulations, Kaizen blitzes and practical assignments.

It will include the importance of creating a safe and effective work environment, allowing for physical distancing and workplace sanitization routines to protect employees from potential exposure to COVID-19. This program can be taken in-person, online or remote facilitated.

WHAT OTHERS ARE SAYING

“The training has made me a better individual who can make or initiate changes (big and small) for the benefit of the organization.”

– Brad Hunt, Test Leader at MacDon Industries Ltd.

  
  
“The CME Lean Greenbelt Training Program taught us the value of “going to the gemba.”  Gemba is the Japanese word for “the place where value is created.” The gemba from our training was the insights gained from working together in teams of people from diverse industries to help companies apply Lean principles to their processes. We returned to our own company inspired and well equipped to continually improve.”
