Jeff Liker, the author of The Toyota Way, Lean Culture and Lean Leadership has developed an online training program in Lean Leadership. I have agreed to serve as a coach to those taking the Lean Leadership course. The course is self-paced and online. There are two levels of the course, one leading to a Yellow Belt Certificate and the other leading to a Green Belt Certificate in lean leadership. This is a good way to engage a large number of managers who may not have the time to attend on-site training and who can progress through the course on their own time. This can be supplemented with on-line Webex discussions about application among the managers in your organization.
- Executive Leadership Team
- Lean Project Sponsors
- Team Leaders
This course is designed to give participants a deeper understanding of what it means to be a true ‘Lean Leader.’ Through this interactive series of videos delivered by 11-time Shingo Prize winning author Dr. Jeffrey K. Liker, you will learn directly from Dr. Liker all aspects of Lean Leadership. You will be taking frequent quizzes and getting feedback to gauge your progress throughout the course. Training like this is not available anywhere else.
Liker Leadership Institute (LLI) offers an innovative way to learn the secret to lean leadership
“When I wrote “the Toyota Way to Lean Leadership” with Gary Convis we knew that “lean leaders” would finally have a way to live the company values, become excellent at process improvement following the disciplined approach of Plan-Do-Check-Act, learn to coach others in process improvement, and lead both horizontally across the company and vertically within their area of responsibility. This allows them to achieve the challenging targets the organization needs for success.
“My online course provides an overview of each step in the lean leadership development process: Self-development, Developing and Coaching Others, Supporting Daily Kaizen, and Creating a Vision and Aligned Goals. Throughout the course you will learn more deeply through exercises, case examples, quizzes. and actual projects in your workplace under the guidance of talented lean coaches (LLI Coaches).”
