Course Overview

The correct mindset and skill sets are important for both large and small organisations. Hence, Lean management has become a universal management tool for delivering value and optimising work processes. "Lean Management Practice" although started from manufacturing,  it is currently used in all industries, such as Lean University, Lean Marketing, Lean Banking, Lean Government, Lean Construction, Lean Office & Lean Services. It is an approach to manage an organisation that supports the concept of continuous improvement, a long-term approach to work that systematically seeks to achieve small, incremental changes in processes in order to improve efficiency and quality. Also, a very important portion of work today involves team members being assets instead of liabilities. Many organisations are seeking to transform their team members from being cost centres to profit centres. This can only be achieved if everyone understands and can deliver measurements of profitability, especially in areas that would sustain income into the company, either by reducing costs or improving revenues and profits.

Learning Activities

This is an applied learning programme conducted with interactive lectures, PowerPoint presentation, discussions, peer-to-peer assessments, feedback and personal consultation. The course is structured as repetitive cycles of learn-see-do. Firstly, we will teach the principles of the programme, then how they are put into practice. After that, the participants will participate in illustrating the application of principles to a business scenario in class, fulfilling the "do" cycle. We will repeat these learn-see-do cycles until each element is covered and then examine how the pieces work together to support a problem-solving culture, which is typical for a mature lean organisation. There will be an individual and/or group discussion, presentation and/or structured exercises. At the end of each day, there will be assessments to assess the participants’ understanding of the course content.
