Introduction

The Leadership aspect of Lean

If you want your Lean initiatives be successful, you must understand what your teams need. When it comes to Lean transformation and keeping the momentum, ordinary management styles tend to fall short. During LL training, you find out how to train people in Lean, and motivate team members during their Lean work. The content of the training will make you intricately familiar with the history, philosophy and best practices which make Lean so effective. And with the help of our Lean Experts, the practical side of the methodology becomes your toolbox. With your new knowledge of Lean tools, methods and leadership techniques, you help your teams in avoiding pitfalls and achieving consistent results.

organizational BENEFITS

Aligning Lean and Management

Lean activities do not thrive under a centralized style of management, therefore a manager who also understands Lean and manages in a Lean way is most effective. Lean Managers empower and support their teams achieve greater results and contribution to company goals. Similarly, without a leader who understands the cyclical nature of Lean, results will be less consistent. A core principle of Lean is that processes revert back to ad-hoc chaos, and improvements will be undone without a cycle of constant vigilance and improvement (i.e. PDCA). By employing a Lean Leader to spearhead a team of Lean professionals, their work, initiatives and results can be much more effective and impactful and sustainable.

Attend one of our classroom trainings and interact one-on-one with your trainer and classmates. Discuss your thoughts, practice tools, and learn from each other’s experiences.

Enroll

Virtual

You can participate in this training from anywhere in the world. We’ve designed our program to maximize interaction and engage participants in a fun way: For example, through a live value stream analysis where you dive into a process and build it from scratch. Or a team exercise that demonstrates why ‘Standard Work’ actually works. It’s a hands-on experience you can do from the comfort of your own home – very convenient, but just as educational.

Curriculum

Lean Leader Training overview

In comparison to our Lean Practitioner (LP) Training, the Lean Leader (LL) Training has been designed for professionals looking to take charge of Lean activities in their department. This training is one of the most extensive Lean courses we have available.

From the simple understanding of ‘waste’, to more complex concepts such as Lean company culture and how to achieve it, this training offers it all. A Lean Leader is expected to possesses knowledge of concepts such as the 14 Management Principles of Toyota, SMED, OEE and more. During this training, our Lean Experts ensure you understand even the most complex concepts of the Lean methodology.

After completing the training, you will be able to use your knowledge to optimize and refine existing processes. Your knowledge will help create new daily work habits and establish you as a true change agent.

Lean tools can be used in any industry, as any repetitive process can be optimized. With the tools and methods offered by the methodology, you will have the solution to any challenge. Lean Leader training is the ideal way to bring process improvement to your work environment with an ISO-level course and a prestigious certificate.

ROI (Return-On-Investment) estimate

After having trained thousands of students in the Lean Six Sigma methodology, our findings are as follows: projects by a Green Belt save 50 – 100 thousand Euro on average, often from the very first project. And with each project taking approximately 4 – 6 months, it is even possible to carry out multiple projects a year.

FAQ

Frequently asked questions

1. Can I enroll a training without any prior experience or knowledge of Lean Six Sigma?

Every training we offer assumes that our participants start the training without any knowledge of the Lean Six Sigma methodology. It starts with the basics and explains the mentioned topics without assuming any prior knowledge. During the training, you will perform simulations and exercises that will help you expand your knowledge. If you choose to do a project as part of the training, you will be coached and supported by one of The Lean Six Sigma Company’s Master Black Belts to help you get to the finish line.

2. Should I go for a Green Belt or Black Belt training?

This depends on your goals and what you intend to achieve. If you would prefer to employ Lean Six Sigma on a part-time basis, for example alongside other work, the Green Belt training would be the best choice. If it’s your aim to work with Continuous Improvement and become a Lean Six Sigma professional, then the Black Belt training would be the right pick. Consider attending our FREE Online White Belt Training to find the answer yourself

3. What is the difference between Green Belt and Black Belt?

The main difference is the scope of your projects. Green Belt projects usually aim to solve problems that only affect the stakeholders of one department. Black Belt projects usually deal with lengthy, complex problems that cross departmental boundaries and affect multiple stakeholders. The duties of a Green Belt are similar to those of a project manager. Black Belts have more responsibility and take a more active, leadership role by guiding other Green Belts during projects.

4. How does the ‘BB Services’ training differ from the ‘BB Manufacturing’ training?

BB Services training is best suited for individuals involved in transactional occupations such as general administration, hospitality, logistics, financial services, etc. BB Manufacturing training is best suited for individuals involved in production, machinery, factories and automation. Of course, graduates of the BB Manufacturing training can also carry out projects in the transactional areas.

5. Do you offer training in other languages?

In Austria we offer our courses in English and in German languages. More information about our worldwide presence and courses in the other languages can be found on our theleansixsigmacompany.com world map page, here you will find in which countries we are currently active and offer trainings.

6. What is the right training for me?

This depends on your goals and what you intend to achieve. Why don’t you follow our Online White Belt Training to find the answer yourself?

7. Should I go for a Lean Leader or Lean Practitioner training?

Lean Leaders have a different role than Lean Practitioners. Practitioners carry out small to mid-sized Lean Initiatives mostly in their own workplaces. Lean Leaders on the other hand possess a wider range of knowledge of Lean, lead larger projects, and train employees so they can start using the Lean methodology themselves.
