Brief overview:

Our LEAN practitioner cohort is structured over a four month period with four separate half day training mornings over this time frame (one each month), which will enable candidates to build their skills and knowledge on LEAN methodology and service improvement with the aim to work to complete a improvement project.

At the end of the 4 training workshops candidates will be given approximately 6-8 weeks to work towards the completion of their projects. A poster presentation will then be held so that candidates can present their change initiatives back to the wider Trust.

By the end of the cohort candidates you will have gained an understanding of:

  • Problem statements, planning, project overview, current state capture.
  • Waste elimination, Future state, methods and tools, measures.
  • Methods and tools continued, post change measurements.
  • 30, 60, 90 day methodology, impact assessment, quantifying findings, continuous improvement.

It is important for candidates to bring an idea to the workshop which they can work to progress and complete as part of the LEAN service improvement journey.
