Level One Lean Certification is a series of workshops, concepts and tools that apply specifically to today’s challenging work environment. The certification is a combination of both technical and social skills needed to implement change. As market forces continue to dictate price and lead time pressures, organizations need to focus their resources to meet these needs. The Level One Certification is the starting point for an individual’s and company’s continuous improvement journey. The certification is a pragmatic, “hit the ground running” hands-on approach that links acquired workshop knowledge to the workplace. Upon completion, each candidate will learn to “discover” improvement
opportunities within an organization and learn how to capitalize on these opportunities.

Each participant will be required to perform a “waste walk” within their organization and report their findings and recommendations to remove the identified wastes.

Upon completion of the level one certification the graduate will be able to:

Understand how to recognize and eliminate waste through the cycle of PLAN-DO-CHECK-ACT
Know how to determine value added, non-valued-added, and non-value-added-but-required activities
Be able to identify the value stream, how it’s mapped, and how to identify the areas that require improvement
Be able to develop a road map and an implementation plan
Recognize the fundamental importance of the kaizen process, how it’s used in every aspect of a lean implementation, and how it’s used to change the culture
Gain a broad understanding of lean tools such as value stream mapping, workplace organization, change management, teaming and kaizen methodology
