We value accredited training, but know that it works best when it is ‘live’ and applied immediately to existing work.
Accredited by Cardiff University’s Lean Competency Services, the Lean Competency System allows us to provide training and testing to recognise your competence and to ensure high standards. There are a number of levels, beginning with basic understanding through to practitioner levels that will:
- Recognise and reward your staff
- Assure robust, high quality training
- Increase sustainability and aid ROI by having trained internal staff
- Increase overall capability within the organisation.
We are committed to the development of understanding and the transfer of skills in each piece of work we support.
Accredited training involves assessment of your staff and certification, which can contribute to continuing professional development.
Level 1a: Lean Awareness. This level aims to create awareness and an understanding of Lean Thinking principles and underlying continuous improvement concepts.
Level 1b: Lean Diagnosis and Analysis. This level develops the learner’s knowledge of Lean diagnostic and analytical techniques. It will enable them to apply these techniques in the workplace to understand customer/stakeholder value, the current state, solve problems and propose future states.
Level 1c: Lean Implementation and Improvement. This level focuses on enhancing the learner’s knowledge, understanding and application of Lean improvement and implementation techniques. Learners undertaking this module will be able to actively participate in improvement activities in the workplace.
Level 2: Lean Implementation and Design. This level focuses on advanced lean knowledge and application required to be an effective Lean leader. Learners undertaking this module will be able to actively lead and manage cross-organisation improvement activities in the workplace.
Level 2 is split into a and b depending on whether they are Lean Champions or programme managing the overall programme. The content is the same, just their level of responsibility is different.
