The course focuses on the additional requirements for Lean Leaders compared to Lean Practitioners within ISO18404:2015. These are primarily of three types. Firstly, there are five additional competences not required at Lean Practitioner level, but required to be demonstrated by Lean Leaders.
These cover managing productive time, workload planning, self-review and self-development, Lean techniques such as VSM, and presentation and reporting skills. Whilst some of this has already been well covered in our Lean Practitioner course, additional development is required at Lean Leader level.
The second main type of additional requirements is the additional management and training competences that Lean Leaders need to have over and above those of Lean Practitioners, for whom the emphasis is mainly on personal application.
The third type of additional requirements is that the Lean Leader’s role definition also requires them to drive improvements in the organization and coach Lean practitioners on process improvement methods and activities.
Accordingly, this course commences with an assessment of delegates competences and the evidence as required under ISO18404, and then works to use a combination of coaching and training inputs to prepare delegates for Lean Leader certification under ISO18404.
