Course structure

The two courses are structured to enable you to go from developing a good understanding of Lean all the way through to being able to facilitate your own process improvement events.

Lean Fundamentals

The Lean Fundamentals course consists of five modules broken down into lessons.

Each module lasts approximately 90 minutes, the course taking approximately seven and a half hours to complete.

Many lessons contain one or more Lean learning exercises to reinforce your understanding. The time allocated to the exercises is a minimum, and you will benefit from spending additional time to completely familiarise yourself with, and understand the relevance of, those exercises.

The course is delivered recorded and is accessible via your login on our website. Progress through the course is self-paced. We will be holding regular weekly live group sessions where we can, for example, discuss your progress, answer your questions, and share experiences.

The course can also be delivered live online for organisations, and it can also be delivered live at your organisation or if you want to come to Scotland, at St Andrews.

Lean Project Simulation

The Lean Project Simulation course is a practical instructor-led course that is delivered online and live. The course is scheduled to run at regular intervals over one week, or over a weekend, and will cater for various time zones. Times and dates the course will run will be available on our website.

The five modules of this course vary in length from one and a half to three hours and combined, the course takes approximately 12 hours.

The course can also be delivered live at your organisation or if you want to come to Scotland, at St Andrews.
