Our most popular certification program is the Lean Greenbelt, which is being offered in Vancouver, Calgary, Edmonton, Winnipeg, and Toronto.
Greenbelt Certification programs are experiential, hands-on programs. Participants learn the basics of lean as well as more advanced topics. Approximately 20% of the time is spent in a classroom or workshop setting. The majority of the time is spent implementing and developing solutions through kaizen-style sessions at actual operating companies.
Our belief is that you learn by actually doing, vs simply listening to a lecture. Our philosophy is based on the gemba principle of doing the work where it actually happens.
Greenbelt consists of three important modules that are one week each in length. It is our most important intermediate program and the class is typically full 2 to 3 months in advance. LSI was the first pioneers of the Lean Greenbelt, and it is now recognized as the industry-leading programs by such companies as CP Rail, Vancouver Coastal Health, First West Credit Union, Sauder Moulding & Millwork, Purdy's Chocolates, Canadian Mint, Kudu Industries, Alpha Technologies, and hundreds of companies across the world.
The Greenbelt is also offered in two tracks: Greenbelt for operations and Greenbelt for Service. The operation version is aimed at companies that have operating framework, such as manufacturing, distributors, and supply chain companies. The Greenbelt for Service is designed for companies that are non-manufacturers, or for people who are in non-operational roles within a company. The focus is on service-related lean activities.
