Target group and prerequisites
Lean is not only about tools and methods, it is a management and development system that gives a holistic view of organizational development. It is also systematic development of processes, operating models, and work methods. Lean philosophy is based on Deming's quality circle Plan-Do-Check-Act. Key concepts and principles include, for example, the inclusion of people and the team, timely operations, finding the root causes of problems, reducing waste, improving flow efficiency, standardized practices, and visual management.
By applying Lean principles, organizations learn to develop the quality of operations, improve processes, and streamline operations – delivering value to the customer and achieving results, continuously improving. With Lean, organizations can reduce unproductive activities and waste, get concrete tools for development work, improve customer satisfaction, and achieve financial savings.
The Lean-muutosagentti (Lean Change Agent) training includes seven days of theoretical instruction and exercises. You will learn the basics of Lean thinking and leadership, understand how to develop work with Lean tools, learn methods to improve flow efficiency and daily management, and understand how to create a Lean culture at the organizational level. You are able to lead and implement Lean development projects and understand the principles of systematic problem solving and continuous improvement. You will get tools for process renewal and organizing development activities.
Between training modules, you will execute a development project in your organization and apply Lean methods, tools, principles, and operating models to practice.
The program is held in Finnish.
Teaching takes place at Aalto PRO's premises in Helsinki.
