Lean Management and Tools for Manufacturing Office, Healthcare and Government/Education Sectors - Online

Course Description

Lean is a way to tighten the way you do business and gain results you can see in your bottom line. Lean first started in manufacturing companies. But now with uncertainty in the economy, Lean has become useful in the healthcare field, educational organizations, government organizations and administrative offices. This online course lets you choose the sector you want to explore. In the Management module, you'll learn about the lean philosophy and how it changes your company for the better. In the Tools module, you'll define each tool, determine what it can do, see what it looks like and recognize when it can be used. This course can also be used as a general refresher, a prerequisite for advanced lean training and an in-house library selection.
