Lean Process Improvement involves perfecting processes by working smarter to minimize waste within a company. Although Lean process analysis has emerged as a ‘best business practice’ in recent years, it’s organized around a culture of ideas, tools, and processes that have existed among the best business practitioners for hundreds of years.

Based on leading research and presented in a format that is straightforward and easily understood, students learn the foundation necessary to begin using Lean process improvement tools in their workplace.

This useful skillset includes Toyota’s five critical improvement concepts, tools needed to continuously improve an organization (5S, PDSA, DMAIC, Kaizen, various Lean data mapping methods), and more.
