Lean Thinking

Identifying Waste and Solving it

Lean is the methodology to ensure that services and products can be delivered in a flow the customer values. The methodology focuses on reducing activities that do not add value to the customer (waste). A Lean professional can enhance a process by applying the Lean improvement tools based on the Lean philosophy and methodology. A qualified Lean professional mobilises co-workers to improve processes.

The Lean Thinking course

The Lean Thinking course focuses on how to apply Lean principles in the field. The training is built around two main topics and a simulation. The main topics are the 7 Wastes and the 5 Womack Steps. Furthermore, a simulation is part of the course providing the opportunity to apply what you have learned in a practical situation.

During the course, you will learn to recognise waste and you will receive a roadmap to optimise processes in a targeted manner. After the two-day training course, you will immediately be able to apply Lean principles to your work environment.

You will be amazed at the process improvement potential that you will be able to recognise and how you will be able to realise the necessary process improvement using the Lean methodology and tools taught during the course.

Lean Six Sigma in your company

Although Lean Six Sigma is best known as a project-based improvement structure, it is much broader than that. Lean Six Sigma is an established philosophy, an organisational and improvement structure as well as a set of tools. Using this perspective Lean Six Sigma addresses organisational issues with respect to competitiveness, cost reduction and customer satisfaction. 

Depending on your ambition, Lean Six Sigma can be implemented in phases. Every organisation is unique, without a common blueprint that universally applies. Together with you, The Lean Six Sigma Company will develop a plan of action tailored to your organisation.
