John C. Huang, Ph.D, PE
Lean thinking is all about adding value and removing waste. Although they were developed in the manufacturing sector, Lean principles are equally applicable to the service sector, both private and public. This course helps you understand what Lean is and what eight wastes are. In addition, you will learn how to select a Lean project, how to scope and prepare for a Lean event, how to conduct and manage the phases of a Lean event, and how to implement follow-up activities after a Lean event, ensure accountability, and evaluate performance. This is an excellent opportunity to get the kick start you need on your Lean journey.
This course includes a multiple choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of the course materials.
