You already have extensive experience in applying Lean at the Value Stream level, and you are ready for your next step in development: getting to work at all layers of the organization to achieve structural culture change. You understand the challenges of your organization, and are able to translate these challenges into countermeasures for each layer of the organization. Ultimately, you create an organization capable of continuous improvement. During the course you will also carry out a project in your own organization.
The training is started with an intake interview, in which the content of the program is explained and together we look at the possibilities and the starting point for the realization of a project in your own organization.
The first two days are dedicated to shaping Lean transformation through the Lean infrastructure & the Lean Transformation Model.
Days 3 and 4 are devoted to analyzing and solving the real issues in the organization (value stream improvement).
You will learn:
The last two days are devoted to development of an organizational A3 and guidance and coaching on its implementation. Coaching multiple projects at different levels of the organization and ensuring that these projects contribute to actual end results.
We believe; Lean you don't learn from a booklet or a PowerPoint. That's why a hands-on improvement project is part of this training. During the first session, the trainers will help you determine the scope of your path for certification. You may also already have an issue/project in mind to work on. We are happy to help you successfully complete this training!
The certification consists of two parts: first, taking a written exam on the theory covered in the training and studied by you. This test consists of 10 open-ended questions, you will have 90 minutes to answer and it is not an open-book test. The topics tested will cover the material covered during the training days and the distributed literature (articles and books). The second part is a company visit (Gemba Walk) in which you show how your organization is managed, what steps you have taken in the Lean transformation and how you have developed yourself in Lean knowledge and skills. If you get a passing grade (at least a 5.5 on a scale of 10) for both parts, you will receive a certificate Lean Master Black Belt.
The price for this training is € 4,500 per person (ex VAT) and includes 6 training days, training materials and Lean books, official Lean Master Black Belt certification, lunches and accommodation at our beautiful training location in the woods of Zeist. The training will be scheduled as soon as a minimum of 6 people are interested. In consultation an individual customized training program is also possible.
