Lean Healthcare, Lean Leadership, and Lean Certification

We are happy to announce three new opportunities for training in October and November 2013 in Southern California:

We have a 3-day Blended Learning Lean Manufacturing Certification program on October 1-3, 2013 in San Diego, CA.  The program includes 3 days of interactive, instructor-led training plus self-paced online training as well.  Participants will learn how to apply each of the principles and tools of lean including Value Stream Mapping, Continuous Flow Manufacturing Cells, Lean Production Control, Level Pull Production, kanban and pull systems, 5S, quick changeover, TPM, problem solving methods, and kaizen events. Certification requires the completion of a lean manufacturing project to reinforce the learning and achieve real results.  This event will take place at the Hilton San Diego Airport / Harbor Island.   Pricing is $1595 for early registration (by September 1, 2013) and $1695 after.  For details, visit Lean Manufacturing Certification.

Our Lean Healthcare Training program will take place on November 4-5, 2013 in Santa Ana, CA at the Doubletree Club by Hilton Hotel Orange County Airport.  This interactive session will translate basic lean principles and its application to achieve the Triple Aim of the nation’s health care reform efforts. This two-day workshop will emphasize eliminating wastes throughout the health care continuum including ambulatory and administrative processes, beyond the inpatient settings, using basic lean tools such as Value Stream Mapping, 5S, and A3.  Pricing is $895 for those who register by October 5, 2013 and $995 after.  For details visit Lean Healthcare Training.

Finally, our Lean Leadership Training program will take place on November 13-14, 2013 in Santa Ana, CA  at the Doubletree Club by Hilton Hotel Orange County Airport.    The Lean Leadership program will address the role of leaders within a lean organization including executive management, middle management, and front line supervision.  Lean leadership is different from traditional MBA-style management; in lean thinking, people are not to be managed.  Instead processes are managed and people are given the direction and skills to achieve the strategy of an organization.  The management team must create the right environment or culture to make this happen.  This program includes 2 days of interactive, instructor-led training covering topics such as strategy deployment (aka hoshin kanri, hoshin planning, or policy deployment), Daily Kaizen, A3 Problem Solving and Reporting, Coaching for Improvement using the Improvement Kata, Value Stream Management, and Lean Accounting and Metrics.  This program is for leaders and change agents within healthcare, manufacturing, or service organizations.    Pricing is $895 for those who register by October 14, 2013 and $995 after.  For details, visit Lean Leadership Training.
