Lean Yellow belt is perfect for those individuals wanting to gain additional skills and resources for productivity improvement. Front line workers, administrators, engineers, supervisors, operations support and all management team members.

Our 2-day Lean Yellow Belt Training is designed to provide attendants with a comprehensive understanding of Lean methods and prepare them to participate, as contributors, to Lean projects. The program outlines the essential Lean tools and practices that can be applied within an organization to increase service efficiency and quality, improve customer and staff satisfaction, and reduce waste.

Participants will develop high-level current state value stream maps that depict activity flow and indicate value-added and non-value-added activities. These maps are analyzed during the training to identify bottlenecks, redundancies and inefficient flow.

Training entitles OACETT members to earn requirements for their Continuing Professional Development (CPD).
