Learn the Skills Needed to Eliminate Waste and Increase Flow in Your Organization’s Processes

Lean is a continuous improvement program designed to eliminate waste and nonvalue added activities in any process. Lean utilizes Kaizen Events – short, focused projects in which processes are analyzed to find where improvements and efficiencies can be made. Lean is successfully utilized in all industries including manufacturing, education, health care and government. 

In Kent State’s Lean Practitioner Certificate, participants will gain the skills necessary to make significant process improvements. You will learn to identify waste in your processes, as well as utilize the tools and techniques needed to eliminate them. This intensive five-day program uses a combination of practical examples and hands-on simulations to ensure that you not only learn, but also master the concepts needed to make a Lean transformation.
