Why Lean?

Posted by Impact Dakota on Aug 3, 2017 12:41:22 PM

Are your employees knowledgeable about Lean best practices?
Are you struggling to maintain implemented process improvements?
Can your employees lead Kaizen events and successfully implement improvements?

The Lean Enterprise Certification Program (LECP) provides your key staff with a working knowledge of the principles and best practices of Lean. It is the only nationally recognized Lean Certification program; using standards developed and judged by the Society of Manufacturing Engineers (SME).

For the participant to achieve an SME Lean Knowledge Certificate they must complete:

  • 32 hours of classroom learning on Lean topics such as 5S, Total Productive Maintenance and Value Stream MappingLECP impact dakota
  • 24 hours of practical application designed to have your participants identify improvements and apply their knowledge
  • A program review to prepare for the Lean Enterprise Certification examination
  • The SME standards examination

Impact Dakota will work with your employees to build their Lean knowledge and skills, and help you sustain your Lean capacity through the LECP program.  It includes classroom training on all major Lean tools and elements and immediate implementation of that knowledge and skills in your company.

Participants can also achieve an SME Lean Bronze Certification by leading projects and completing a portfolio.
