Welcome to our most popular lean training package!
Lean Practitioner Training Package
On this page, is information about our intermediate level training course from the 10 Steps to become a Lean Enterprise program.
This training course is called “Lean Practitioner in Manufacturing.” It’s the middle level of the 10 Steps to become a Lean Enterprise training and implementation series developed by Chris Turner.
The Level 2 – Lean Practitioner training course was originally designed as forty hours of training, and is typically presented over five consecutive business days by an on-site consultant at many of our client’s premises. In this course, you find out how to take the pieces of the lean jigsaw puzzle that you learned about in our Lean Awareness training course and link them together.
When you sign up for our online version of the “Lean Practitioner in Manufacturing” training course, you will receive the same quality step by step instruction from Chris Turner, our Lean Manufacturing Coach through a series of training videos, course workbooks and supporting materials. You will not need any additional materials, everything you need is included in the complete training package.
Lean Practitioner in Manufacturing allows you to start to build a framework (or structure) onto the solid foundation that was developed as you learned about lean concepts in the “Lean Awareness in Manufacturing” training course.
Please not: The Level 1 – Lean Awareness training materials are included in the Level 2 – Lean Practitioner training package, at no additional cost!
Lean Practitioner in Manufacturing allows you to develop a deeper understanding of lean tools and techniques as they are applied in the 10 Steps training and implementation model.
Chris Turner has 30+ years of hands-on lean experience and he will personally share his knowledge.
He will give a more detailed explanation, and demonstrate how a process improvement team can successfully deploy the model to implement lean principles into a manufacturing business.
