Lean Training and Development

Training and Development is one of the key principles of any Lean Sigma program and we provide a menu of training programs proven to provide business results.

We base our training on methods to retain what was learned, planning to execute what was learned, and achievement of business results through :

  1. Starting with a Target review before actual training begins
  2. Applied Training Methods during sessions:
    1. Replication of skills
    2. Spacing out repetition
    3. Prevention of learning overload
    4. Multi-technique learning (Telling, Showing, Performing)
  3. Encouraged Leadership Engagement
  4. Each training session results in an executable plan to go forward

Training and development is a key organizational value.
