Lean Yellow Belt

Course Summary

The Lean philosophy and methodology has helped transform businesses such as Toyota, Tesco and large heathcare providers. It has also been used by smaller businesses to improve efficiency and customer service. 
There isn’t a worldwide standard for Lean training as all good training should be tailored to the needs of the trainees and their organisations. It makes very little sense to learn all about manufacturing if you are in a healthcare, education or service industry.

Content is benchmarked against other training providers in order to ensure a rigorous programme. This approach means that it can be deployed immediately into your organisation supporting individual CPD and strategic business goals.


This is an interactive course delivered in one day plus pre-course study time (2 hours). You will learn how a Lean philosophy can help you create a culture to transform your business. For those who want to demonstrate evidence of their skills and competencies, there is an optional short exam.
