The Lean Yellow Belt certificate workshop is designed to give public servants an introduction to the fundamentals of Lean process improvement for government and provide the skills needed to improve a low-complexity government process.
The course begins with an introduction to Lean followed by a review of the tools and techniques used in the 5-step process improvement approach (DMAIC). To reinforce the concepts and enhance learning the workshop features a simulated improvement exercise for participants to practice what they've learned to improve a typical government process.
This is an essential starting point for organizations who want to undertake a low-risk Lean experiment to build expertise before they implement on a larger scale. The program provides sufficient depth to run a low complexity process improvement project and get results, crucial to building a case for broader implementation.
