Lean helps you focus on the flow of value to the customer quickly, sustainably, reliably, and with high quality. Lean is not a packaged solution; rather it uses Lean-Thinking to guide an organization’s transformation towards business agility. It looks at the whole system and across all of the value streams.

This course shows how Lean employs concepts such as eliminating waste, cost of delay, quality, rapid feedback and response, and the role of management. It also satisfies the prerequisite of Lean knowledge for the DALSM exam.

Learning Objectives:
   - Learn the foundations of Lean; the attention to structure, time, and education
   - Learn the principles of Lean
   - Learn the time aspect of Lean
   - Conduct a value stream mapping exercise
   - Learn what an effective organization’s value stream looks like
   - Discuss the role of management and their effect on culture
   - Describe how to use plan-do-study-act (PDSA) for continuous improvement
