An in-depth Lean Practitioner Course

Creating efficiency at work requires more than just a single effort. Daily working habits have to be changed, team initiatives ask for new expertise, and insights have to be shared. During the Lean Practitioner Training, students learn how to become the driving force for such efforts. Students acquire a wide variety of tools and insights, and learn to see and solve the underlying root-causes of any problem. The strength of a Lean Practitioner is to bring teams together. They challenge unproductive habits, involve key stakeholders, and overcome reactive problem solving. Always with one goal in mind: for everyone to meet customer demands more easily.

organizational BENEFITS

Benefits of Lean Practitioner initiatives

Quick but solid improvements is what makes Lean so popular, especially in organizations with operational excellence goals. Continuous Improvements are done through Value Stream Maps, Kaizen events and A3 projects, and results stay within reach, which makes them attractive and much easier to invest time in. Organizational issues that have been a burden since long can be resolved within a single month or even week. Not from behind a single desk, but through group efforts, right where the work is carried out. Besides thorough improvements, Lean activities are also quite fun, as they challenge others to think about work – either their own or in general – and improve on the old standards.

Your way of studying


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. Our face-to-face trainings are the best way to share and network with other participants and are the ideal choice for anyone who enjoys hands-on learning.



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.



Lean Practitioner Training overview

The Lean Practitioner (LP) Training has been designed for individuals looking to personally use Lean tools and methods. The training covers everything needed to begin from the basics. From the simple understanding of ‘waste’, to more complex concepts such as changing daily habits and the way people think about solving issues at work.

During the training, students perform live exercises and practice with various tools to become familiar with their application. Lean Practitioners possess the knowledge needed to optimize and refine existing processes within an organization, as well as create new daily working habits. In short, they establish themselves as change agents.

It is possible to use Lean tools in any industry, as any repeating process can be optimized using the tools and methods provided by the methodology. Bring process improvement to your working environment with our ISO-level courses, regardless of your field.

In the next section, we highlight what specifics the training will offer. This intensive setup has one goal: to make you into a skilled Lean expert. With each phase, your knowledge and grasp of the tools will grow, until eventually, you understand how to achieve your goals as a fully-fledged Lean Practitioner.

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.

Frequently asked questions

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.

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

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.

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.

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 world map page, here you will find in which countries we are currently active and offer trainings.

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?

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.
