Learn how to take your organisation’s potential to the next level by taking this course on Process Improvement: How to Reduce Waste. Nearly all business processes have some inherent element of waste, which is accepted as being “unavoidable” by senior figures. Still, you can prove your worth in the company by analysing results and delivering resolutions.        

This training for Process Improvement provides step-by-step explanations and techniques for identifying wasteful or needless practices and eliminating them if possible. You will be shown how to incorporate Lean methodology into a work environment, use the “eight wastes” strategy to pinpoint issues, ascertain if a work activity adds genuine values to an objective, and perform process mapping. You will be amazed at how useful and successful this philosophy will be in everyday working practice.  

By completing this training, you will have gained a significant understanding of fundamental process improvement initiatives and use them to make a real positive difference to your business.
