Coach Training

Lean Coach Training Program
A Lean coach guides teams in learning how to define problems develop countermeasures to be implemented with Lean as a collaborative scientific approach. Our training provides a solid Lean foundation on which you can build. You must keep in mind however that the goal of a Lean transformation is to integrate continuous improvement in daily work. An in-house Lean ‘consultant’ such as a Lean coach cannot be delegated the ‘task’ of continuous improvement. It is leadership that must fully own a Lean transformation and engage in leadership of all continuous improvement efforts. An in-house Lean coach role is therefore only temporary until leadership is ready to assume their role of coach at all levels of management.

Learn how to implement Lean as the science of work in your workplace: see work (by using visual tools/management to see flow and what disrupts flow of value to clients such as maps or ‘kanban’, because in science you can’t measure what you can’t see), measure work (the simplest and most widely used measures are time and quality) and improve work every day (by collaboratively optimizing the flow of value to clients to make flow faster, easier and cheaper).
