This course is an opportunity for APAC companies to receive online training and certification for applying Lean and Six Sigma techniques to environmental problems in their business or community. Access to the top instructors in the industry on Lean and the Environment is difficult to receive, so this course was setup to allow international audiences to learn at an affordable price.
Many companies from every industry are embracing Lean methodology popularized by Toyota. They are seeing reduction in operating costs, increases in customer satisfaction, and increased employee engagement. However, most of these companies do not realize that they can apply these same techniques to reduce their environmental impact related to water usage, air emissions, solid and hazardous waste and energy usage. This can help them reduce the risk of fines, reduce permitting fees, reduce operating and utility costs, attract and retain employees, and can open up new markets for growth and sales.
This 12-hour webinar (2 hour sessions over 6 days) introduces attendees to methods of creating and implementing a process improvement program. In addition, individuals will be given the knowledge to move forward in their personal development with an accredited Lean certification. The Lean Competency System (LCS) is a lean qualifications framework created by the Lean Enterprise Research Centre at Cardiff University. The LCS framework has seven levels of competency which focus on lean knowledge and lean practice in the workplace. This course will prepare the user for the first level, 1a.
No prior experience in Lean or process improvement required for this course, but even experienced practitioners will find value in learning how to integrate “green” into the existing Lean framework.
This is an online course with instructors from the United States and United Kingdom. It will be held in 2 hour sessions over 6 days (June 21-23rd, June 28-30th, Los Angeles time zone).
