Organization A3

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.

Practice assignment and certification

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.

"Wonderful opportunity to dive deep into the lean way of thinking and working! The principles are really deepened with exercises and simulations and applied under the expert guidance of someone with a lot of practical experience. Not only in traditional production environments but also in for example (financial) services. Top training!"

In addition, there are lots of examples, lots of exchange with fellow participants and there is room for personal development on coaching an A3."
