Lean Thinking | Customer Value | 8 Wastes | Process Thinking | 5S and Workplace Design

We start with an introduction into the DMAIC Problem Solving approach before exploring the various Define phase requirements.

A vast majority of projects fail because they fail to correctly capture what the project is about, what the goal is and who the customer. In this module, we explore how to identify project opportunities, setup projects and project teams and how to ensure our process, customer and stakeholders are aligned.

DMAIC | Problem & Goal Statements | Customer Value | Process Thinking | Project Charters | Teams & Structure

In this module, we apply the Define phase learnings to measure process performance. We discuss how to choose appropriate measures and use data to understand the baseline performance of our processes.

At the end of this Module, you will be able to develop a measurement system that gives us an understanding of the current process performance.

Understanding Data | Basic Statistics | Data Collection | Graphical Analysis | Process Capability | Performance Baseline

In this module, we explore the analysis of data collected during the Measure phase. We look at graphical and statistical techniques for analysing data and how to use these methods to understand variation in our processes.

You will learn how to draw conclusions from the data and develop hypotheses about the causes of process variation.

Root Causes | Correlation & Regression | Risk Analysis | 5 Why & Fishbone | Process Flow & Pull | Graphical Analysis

The Improve phase involves finding opportunities to improve our processes by understanding the relationships between cause and effect. We look at how to generate, test and refine improvement solutions and ensure we select suitable improvement projects.

At the end of this Module, you will have the tools and techniques to develop an improvement plan and be ready to begin to implement the improvements.

Brainstorming | Ideation | Error Proofing | Visual Management | Pilot Studies | Prioritisation Matrix

In this module, we look at ensuring that our processes continue to perform as expected after improvements have been made. We explore establishing controls, monitoring performance and developing an effective control process.

At the end of this Module, you will be able to set up an effective process of monitoring and control.

SPC | Standard Work | Benefit Analysis | Project Close Out

This module is focused on introducing the ideas and concepts behind change management. Change Management is critical for any Lean Practitioner to make lasting change happen.

We introduce the idea of the change curve and how to support your teams through change.

Change Management | Change Curve

With all the theory and learning behind you, this module includes your final multiple choice exam.

There are no limits on the number of times you can take the exam, but an 80% pass rate is required.

The last module is your opportunity to complete a real-world project with our support, coaching and mentoring. You must deliver either a real-world improvement or a simulated example (given by us) to finalise your certification.

You have direct access to your coach and mentor to support you through either the simulated or real-world project.
