About this course

The Lean Startup method is a toolset that helps you to start your venture in a structured way. To use it effectively, you need to know its principles.

Where Six Sigma focuses on reducing defects, Lean looks at reducing waste and improving flow in an organization. The Lean Professional course follows Acuity’s Lean FOCUS™ Improvement Methodology: Focus, Operate, Create, Utilize and Sustain. The Lean FOCUS™ roadmap assists users in identifying problems and improving and implementing Lean solutions. We recommend this program to Project Leaders, Department Leaders, Business Leaders, Business Improvement Team Leaders, and Emerging Leaders. You can be confident that you will learn the skills to make a successful transition from training to the workplace as Acuity Institute’s Lean Professional Certification Program is one the most comprehensive in the world.

Training is conducted online and uses a multi-media format that includes examples of successful Lean performance improvement, interactive simulations and quizzes, and the most current and robust tools and techniques available. The course is “self-paced” and can be accessed at any time – and – anywhere, which provides the most flexibility in completing the course. On average, students complete the Lean Professional training course in 46 hours (average completion time, actual time may vary).
