Be a Leader of Change

Feel confident as a Lean coach, no matter what stage your Lean education is at, with the Introduction to Lean Facilitator Guide. Providing an abundance of annotated notes, suggestions for presentation, tips for facilitating, and even a section that can be read verbatim to the participants, you never have to worry again. Whether you are a team lead or a seasoned trainer, this solution package makes training easy to accomplish.

Build a Common Language

In order to learn a new language you must learn the basic meaning behind each word. The same holds true for Lean. To create a culture that continuously practices Lean you must all speak a common language and hold the same understanding for what that language means. Introduction to Lean provides you with the platform to train your entire organization in this new language.

Don’t Just Learn the 7 Wastes, Identify Them on Your Shop Floor

People learn best when they engage multiple senses; help your employees learn the 7 Wastes of Lean by seeking out and identifying wastes on your own shop floor. After the classroom learning, invigorate the senses by getting out of your chair and walking through a common work area. By working together to identify wastes you build teamwork, encourage observation, pinpoint productivity gains, and begin to build the foundation for a continuous improvement program.

Build an Understanding of Just-In-Time

You can’t expect to build a sturdy house without a solid foundation – don’t expect anything less of your Lean education. This Introduction to Lean training examines the foundation for Just-In-Time: Takt Time, One-Piece Flow, and Pull Systems. Though these concepts may be counterintuitive, through explanation participants will learn to see the value in Just-In-Time.

Team Building with the Flow Simulation

Build confidence, understanding, and retention of concepts using the Introduction to Lean’s included Flow Simulation. The Flow Simulation provides hands-on, interactive learning to stimulate new thoughts and ideas while taking participants from a traditional batch production to One-Piece Flow.

Train Multiple Teams Simultaneously

Expedite your training without losing focus or quality. The Introduction to Lean Solution Package gives you the ability to train multiple teams in an engaging way, with up to 16 people at a time participating in the Flow exercise. This ensures each participant will have a pivotal role to play during the Flow Simulation exercise.

Create Your Internal Experts

Train your workforce to be active and engaging Lean Experts who take ownership of their workplace and drive lasting sustainable change throughout the organization. These people have creative time and cost saving ideas; if only they were given the support to implement them. We have designed our materials for these up and coming experts; providing the supportive materials for both the first time facilitator and seasoned trainer.

Components of our Training Packages

Facilitator Guide – Provides the facilitator with notes on presenting to the participants, background information to read before presenting that explains each slide and all the information presented, and holds the answer key to the assessment at the end of the training.

Participant Workbook – It is important for each participant to have their own workbook, as it provides each slide in the presentation with ample room for taking notes.

Preparation Guide – This accompanies each Training Package and outlines necessary materials, a timetable for each day including breaks and an approximation of how long each section should take to present and discuss, and provides a general list of activities and items that should be prepared for the workshop.

Forms – During the workshop phase of our Training Packages we provide the necessary forms to analyze and assess your operations.

Posters – The posters provided with each Training Package are a high impact, visual reminder of the concepts and tools covered during training. Use them in the training room and around the work area to reinforce the tools, methods, and concepts learned.

Tags – Are used to identify and select items of importance and vary depending on the subject matter and training package. These are used during the workshop portion of training.
