Lesson 311 – Continuous Process Improvement

.

In the Level 2 – Lean Practitioner training course you learned how Step 9 – Continuous Process Improvement is focused on problem solving to identify and eliminate the root causes of waste to increase value for the customer!

In the Level 3 – Lean Expert training course, you will learn about the detailed application and integration of Step 9 – Continuous Process Improvement as part of a continuous process improvement methodology.

Transformation requires a plan and an infrastructure that is focused on waste reduction to improve value for the customer. It also requires a strong management team that is willing to support the process because the right kind of change does not happen by chance!

In Step 8 – Implement Standard Work , you learned how you define the best practices to help an organization to sustain their gains. In this next step, you will learn how to implement and use problem solving techniques to drill down to a deeper level to discover the root causes of waste inside every operation throughout the process.
