About the course

Coined by James Womack and Daniel Jones in the 1980s from their in-depth study of the Toyota Production System, Lean seeks to maximize customer value while minimizing waste. However, more than implementing best practices, creating a Lean Enterprise requires a paradigm shift in the way we think about and manage operations.

During this certificate course, participants will shift their focus from managing separate processes, technologies, departments, and assets to optimizing the flow of materials, products, or services and information through the entire value stream.

Eliminating waste from a value stream rather than at isolated points increases the speed of delivery, improves quality, reduces costs, and enables an organization to be agile in its reaction to customer and market changes.
