Lean Six Sigma

Although the ideas of Lean have gained popularity over the past decade, particularly since Jeffery Liker’s The Toyota Way was published in 2004, Lean principles have existed for nearly three hundred years. Benjamin Franklin’s work in the 1700’s is one of the earliest examples. Henry Ford advocated Lean ideas in the 1920’s, and Sakichi Toyoda (the founder of Toyota) developed some of the basic principles of Lean, which were published in 1935, five years after his death.

This course will provide an introduction to this way of thinking that has changed so many corporations in the world. You will understand how to start your company on the journey to becoming lean – more efficient, less wasteful, and more flexible.
