Lean Green Belt

PROJ 1985

An “Agent for Change” best describes the Lean Green Belt. Organizations that have embraced Lean as a strategy for continuous improvement depend on their Green Belts to lead impactful, multi-departmental, cross-functional projects and promote the use of basic quality and Lean methods across the enterprise.

Understanding the Lean body of knowledge and able to leverage basic quality tools, project management and change management techniques, the Lean Green Belt works effectively on the front-line of product and service delivery as well as in focused process improvement project environments where they support rapid improvement (kaizen) events, more complex value stream mapping improvement projects, or the implementation of 5S and other workplace organization tools.

Students acquire a comprehensive set of Lean tools, methods and project management and facilitative skills that can be applied to complex value stream transformation projects, typically spanning multiple departments.

Upon successful completion, you will be able to:

  • Establish “winning conditions” for improvement projects with well-crafted project charters, change readiness and stakeholder analyses, and prepare detailed plans using Gantt charts.
  • Construct current and future state value stream maps that incorporate vital process data including and not limited to process and cycle times, value and non-value added time, and the takt time (“pace”) to meet customer demand.
  • Identify and eliminate waste and constraints to flow in a future state value stream by employing appropriate Lean techniques, including ‘kanban'' material management systems and ‘just in time'' principles to achieve single piece flow.
  • Employ a variety of Lean techniques to balance work, reduce bottlenecks, improve office and work cell design for improved efficiency, and implement rapid change over (SMED) to increase productivity and throughput.
  • Assist an organization in the development and deployment of a Total Productive Maintenance Program (TPM) to improve overall equipment efficiency (OEE).
