About the course

Productivity Inc. and Fisher College of Business at The Ohio State University are offering a program unlike any other. It is called the Lean Manager Certification Program (LMAC). It’s designed for middle and top-level executives at any company who seek the essential knowledge necessary to drive Lean throughout their entire organization.

This highly interactive and fully accredited program teaches a carefully sequenced arrangement of Lean concepts and tools.

Over four non-consecutive weeks, each participant will experience a series of learning modules focusing on the four key phases of Lean implementation: Plan, Pilot, Deploy and Integrate. In between the weeks of training, students need to apply the methods that they have learned in operations at their own companies and present their results to the class.

It is required that each participant in the program have a corporate sponsor to attest to the participant´s qualification for the program and to the results achieved through the homework assignments.

Participants who successfully complete the four-week training and mentoring program, pass the two-hour certification exam and demonstrate successful implementation in their own facility are then certified by Productivity Inc. and Fisher College of Business as Lean Managers.

Program participants will:

  • Lead an organizational Lean implementation
  • Create a detailed deployment plan based on baseline analysis
  • Perform as a principal change agent
  • Lead site teams to deploy plant-wide Lean methodologies
  • Mentor project leaders, area managers and supervisors
