Continuous Improvement

The Lean / Continuous Improvement process must be sustained by management and permeated throughout the organization as a cultural way of doing business.

Sustaining Lean / CI: Sustaining Lean teaches how to instill the Lean philosophy and techniques into the workforce and prepares Lean Leaders to foster the sustained process of continuous improvement. It involves management techniques as well as strategic planning and thinking. Elements of this training are centered around a Lean Management System, or LMS. Elements of an LMS include process metrics, leader standard work, problem solving, accountability boards (visual management), suggestion systems and Gemba walks. All is designed to comprise a disciplined process for accountability.
