Lean Problem Solving Training Benefits

Tried-and-Tested Problem Solving Methods

In the form we use today, Lean has been around since the early 1990s. Its methods and approaches for problem solving have been tested and fine-tuned over the past decades. When you implement lean problem solving methods, you’re getting proven formulas for efficient problem solving.

Process Improvement Tools

This training covers some foundational lean tools, which your team can begin to utilise within your business. These tools can be applied to streamline and improve existing processes.

Potential for Savings & Increased Profits

Improvements to processes and sustainable solutions to problems lead to time and money saved, less wasted resources, and in time, better profitability.

Option for Further Development

This workshop can be delivered on its own, or as part of a more comprehensive continuous improvement programme for your team. You may wish to pair it with our FMEA Training or Process Mapping Training.

Course Overview

Training Format

This is an in-company workshop, meaning it is only available for group bookings where we come to your premises (or a venue you choose) to deliver the training to your team.

If you have only 1 or 2 team members you would like to train in Lean capabilities, why not take a look at our Certified Lean Six Sigma Green Belt Course?

Delivery Style

The workshop is very practical in style. It’s also a very tailored programme, applying the learning to an existing problem in your business.

We will identify the problem you want to tackle, and focus the content around how lean problem solving principles could help you achieve the outcome you need.

Flexible and Cost Effective

This method of training gives you greater control over the training delivery date. Our in-company pricing structure means that it can work out as a very cost-efficient way to develop the process improvement skills of your entire team or department.
