Learning the fundamentals is the first step in advancing your supply chain. In this first course, explore the principles and tools of lean thinking and see your operations from a new vantage point. From concepts like standardization and process thinking, to tools like value stream maps and dashboards, you will gain the skills and problem solving tools necessary to identify and eliminate waste at the root cause.
This first module is a pivot point in the educational process and this is where current mental models and business paradigms will be challenged. Students will learn and train to see operations from a new vantage point. Upon arrival back to the workplace, students will be able to “talk” the talk of Lean and also have a keen eye for operational waste. However, the real test of this course is when the student can “walk” the lean walk and solve business problems at the root cause, completely eliminating the problem for the organization.
