Lean Green Belt Training


Target group

Employees, from all business areas and functions, who want to successfully execute and improve a project, focused on reducing waste and cycle times, through a systematic approach.

What is Lean Management?

The main objective of Lean Management is to streamline manufacturing and service processes in order to deliver increased value to the customer and achieve competitive advantage. The analysis and differentiation of value creating and non-value creating (i.e. waste) process steps enables the reduction and elimination of waste that automatically results in slimmer and more effective processes.

Lean processes have a strong customer focus, short lead times, clear responsibilities and enable quick intervention in case of errors and deviations. Resources (machinery, equipment, staff) are used efficiently, production costs and lead times are reduced significantly, though flexibility has been increased. Lean Management also involves a cultural change, adapting leadership values and behaviour are important elements of successful lean implementation.

Lean improvement activities are applicable to all business processes of your company, e.g. from production processes to the support of production processes and to service processes.


  • Definition of a process improvement project within the organisation of the participant for application of the learned Lean methodology and tools
  • We expect participants to be able to work with a PC (Excel, PowerPoint)

Learning objectives

After this training participants

  • understand the basic Lean principles,
  • can perform  a value stream mapping and analysis of a process or supply chain,
  • can apply the various Lean production tools (Waste analysis, Pull, Kanban, 5S, SMED, OEE, etc.),
  • are able to execute autonomously Lean projects.


  • This course has a duration of 4 days.
  • The training consists of a unique mix of theory, practical applications and application on the simulation game.
  • The course and the material can be provided in English or German language.
  • A written exam on the last day of the training  measures how well the Lean training content and concepts have been understood.


The investment per candidate is CHF 2‘650.- (excl. VAT) for the training, printed course material, catering and training facilities
