Office Lean Certificate

Lean is a proven methodology used to create a problem-solving culture that drives successful business results. It takes manufacturing-based principles and applies them to nontraditional industries including health care, insurance, government, utilities and not-for-profits. Applying Lean strategies helps organizations identify complex problems, prioritize their importance and work to solve them. The Office Lean Certificate utilizes class dialogue, lectures and hands-on simulation to develop a business operating philosophy that streamlines and eliminates waste from the administrative process. Through our program, achieve bottom-line savings, positive business results and improved quality for your organization.

Single courses may be taken without the pursuit of the certificate.
