Lean Process Improvement
This course will teach you the foundations of Lean through the Toyota precepts and the five critical improvement concepts (value, waste, variation, complexity, and continuous improvement). Then, you will learn about tools to perform continuous improvement in your organization, including 5S, 5W-2H, PDSA, DMAIC, Kaizen, Genchi Genbutsu, and Lean data mapping methods.
From Benjamin Franklins early ideas, to Henry Fords work in the 1920s and the Toyoda precepts in the 1930s, to Jeffery Likers publication of The Toyota Way in 2004, Lean processes have evolved from a simple concept to a set of widely used best practices. This course will introduce you to the most common Lean tools.
