The Best of Both Worlds

This Summer, we are offering a Hybrid version of Greenbelt. The Hybrid course is a combination of both Operations and Service Greenbelt programs.

This version of Greenbelt is ideal for all levels and industries, and is especially useful to those in manager level positions need to know the tactile applications of Lean but also need to understand how Lean on the shop floor feeds into applying Lean in processes that involve many customer touch points.

Below are some photos from the morning of the first day where the class is learning the foundational elements of how Lean came to be from a weaving loom in Japan to a world recognized business model.



 
Our classes always have team building and educational ice breakers. Lean Sensei's famous egg dropping ice breaker requires each team in the Greenbelt class to design an apparatus to protect a raw egg from the impact of a six foot fall. With only limited resources and a strict time limit, the class learns a fundamental quality of Lean. With a little creativity, you can do more than you think with what you have, without sacrificing quality.
 






 
No photo album would be complete without a group shot or two or three...
