Kaizen Leader Agenda

  • Is your organization interested in rapid results with Kaizen?
  • Are the Lean tools what you need to take your business to the next level?

This curriculum prepares students to lead Kaizen events. The two week curriculum covers the basics of Lean, with practical examples for both manufacturing and service environments. The training does not require any prerequisites or software besides Microsoft Word and Excel. Our facilitators lead a mini-Kaizen each week as a part of the training, for additional cycles of learning.
