The Lean and Green certification focuses on adapting Lean tools broadly to environmental waste. Basic Lean tools (Value Stream Mapping, 5S, Eight Wastes, etc.) are introduced from the perspective of the environment rather than the perspective of the customer, providing opportunities to reduce waste – particularly in the area of overhead – that was previously inaccessible to Lean.Participants will complete a real- world project over the course of training, and will meet individually with the instructor as a project coach. Participants are also expected to complete significant individual work on projects outside of class.
Lean and Green provides a broad overview of the application of Lean tools to environmental waste. Over the course of this program, participants develop a base of knowledge that will allow them to identify problems environmental problems and implement solutions that measurably reduce environmental waste.
Participants in Lean and Green learn by
doing, by completing a real-world project as a central part of certification.
