Lean Practitioner Certification Training
Lean practitioners are powerful change agents who drive fast, effective organizational improvements. They play a key role in many organisations. The Lean Practitioner Programme is specially developed for Change Agents within the organisation tasked to lead or participate in continual improvement projects. A Lean Practitioner focuses on specific aspects of the Lean tools, techniques and concepts within the complete Lean curriculum. This programme will facilitate the development of a much more in-depth Lean Practitioner’s skill set to enable Lean Practitioners to return to their workplace and make a real measurable difference.
Lean Practitioner Certification Requirements:
Continual assessments during the course of the Programme are used to determine the delegates’ understanding of the topics covered over the training period. These assessments take the form of both team based and individual assessments.
A certified Lean Practitioner is a valuable asset to the organisation. To become a certified Lean Practitioner, each delegate must successfully complete the training modules (minimum 75% attendance) and pass the continual assessments.
