Understanding the fundamentals of Lean and Six Sigma is vital in a Lean Transformation. Within an organisation it is important that as many people as possible are equipped with the knowledge to facilitate a lean initiative or transformation. A staged progression in learning is regarded as the best method to embed Lean understanding. The stages follow a martial art style belt system of white, yellow, green and black belts. During a lean transformation, it is important that there is company wide understanding of Lean fundamentals. With Lean training, more people can become involved in the companies lean journey and support the business strategic goals and strategy. Empowering employees to improve their own work environment create a positive culture which promotes continuous improvement. LBSPartners offers a range of programmes and training modules to facilitate business needs in services and manufacturing environments.
