The Lean Training You May Have Overlooked

It should come as no surprise that incorporating training courses when deploying lean across an organization is an effective way to sustain a lean culture. But the traditional in-class training format often poses several challenges: removing team members from daily work tasks, logistics, procuring a facilitator, budget approvals, and more. Another challenge is the sheer amount of knowledge participants are expected to retain in one sitting.  And if the training isn’t followed by application work and accountability, the result for the organization is minimal-to-no return on investment. So what options are available to counteract these challenges?

With today's rapid rise of technology, many organizations are turning to online and virtual learning formats.  These alternative formats offer more overall flexibility, and allow students to consume the knowledge in less quantities at a higher frequency - applying the concepts to the workplace as they go.  Leaders are encouraged to become involved and set project goals and expectations as they provide support and coaching.
