  Enroll in Course

A lean business eliminates waste and focuses on providing quality products and services on time and at a low cost. This Lean Mastery Online Training Program contains clear, concise information on transforming a business enterprise and making it lean. This online certificate program is offered in partnership with major colleges, universities, and other accredited education providers.

Lean enterprise is a process designed to bring about rapid improvements to an organization's performance through an overhaul of the value stream. It is composed of a comprehensive set of elements, rules, and tools that focus on value, waste elimination, and continuous incremental improvement.

As market forces dictate pricing and lead-time pressures, businesses need to focus on waste-free processes in order to grow margins and remain competitive. Lean uses specific concepts that are intended to provide excellent quality products, delivered on time, at the lowest total cost, and only on the specific demand of the customer. Companies transitioning to a lean culture are now seeing radical improvements in profitability, service levels, productivity, asset utilization, cash flow, inventory levels, product designs, quality, cycle times, and product costs.

The Lean Mastery Online Program contains clear, concise information on transforming an enterprise to lean. The program is packed with examples, photographs, graphics, quizzes, progress tests, case studies, and many interactive features that provide tips, "try this" exercises, and in-depth information.

Upon registering, you're given six months to complete the program.
