Lean Manufacturing Training and Certification Online

Grasp the Situation!

Every improvement effort needs to follow a series of process steps to get to the root cause of the problem. The first process step is to recognize there is a problem. Here are some typical examples of how unrecognized problems can impact any organization:

lean manufacturing training certification
Start by grasping the situation!
  • There’s never enough hours in the day to finish the work?
  • Customers are frustrated with our late deliveries?
  • Customer orders not being fulfilled correctly ?
  • Product quality is not meeting customer specifications?
  • Employees are frustrated with fire-fighting every day?

Is your business experiencing any or all of these issues? If so, you’re not unique! In fact, many organizations are experiencing the same types of issues. The reality is, many businesses have way too many problems, and too few people with the time and skills to deal with them.

Pro-active vs. Re-active!

So, what differentiates a successful company from one that is not so successful?

A successful company has developed the ability to see a problem as an “opportunity for improvement.” Problems are clear signs of dysfunction, they are direct feedback from your business processes declaring that something is not working as it should.

A successful company utilizes this feedback to drive their continuous improvement, using problem solving tools to identify the root cause.This approach is the product of a pro-active mindset!

A not so successful company will find a work around to overcome the problem and fire-fight their way to get the best result they can! They believe they do not have the time to find the root cause of the problem. This approach is the product of a reactive mindset!

Here is one of the best quotes that explains the short shortsightedness of a reactive mindset:

If you don’t have time to do it right, when will you have time to do it over? – John Wooden

How does a company learn about problem solving techniques? They allow their employees to actively participate in lean manufacturing training and certification courses

Why Participate in Lean Manufacturing Training?

lean expert

An online Lean Manufacturing Training and Certification course is one of the best ways to introduce, develop and establish problem solving into any manufacturing organization. It’s easy to teach basic problem-solving skills to employees. It has a proven track record as one of the most cost effective methods for improving business processes!

Forward thinking business owners and managers understand that the best and most effective problem solvers in any organization are its employees. Why is this? Well, it’s because an employee is working, and experiencing the same frustrating issues, day in, day out. Employees are directly connected to their customers! However, in most organizations they have little to no input in how to improve the way they fulfill the needs of the customer. Employees have critical process improvement information, and it’s important to capture this knowledge to help identify and resolve many of the re-occurring problems! How do you achieve this?

What employees need is the right environment to be able to share their job related insights. To do this successfully, they need some basic lean manufacturing training and an empowering culture that allows them to improve their own workplace. An empowered workforce will improve productivity and increase value for the organization, and its customers. Participating in a lean training course can be an excellent career boost. Everyday companies are searching for people who completed a lean training course and went on to develop their implementation skills. You can do your own research to see how many lean manufacturing job have been posted throughout the USA by visiting our Job Search page.
