Lean methods and concepts to increase performance

Choosing the right lean methods, concepts, and formats to increase performance is essential when it comes to the acceptance, efficiency, and success of improvement measures. The course “Lean methods and concepts to increase performance” provides a comprehensive insight into target setting, procedures, and fields of application with regard to optimization methods and formats. 
By taking part in this training, you will be able to choose the most suitable methods of increasing performance, both when carrying out current improvement projects and when developing and planning larger optimization programs.

Successful optimization methods and formats are presented based on participants’ understanding of potential improvements. Procedures and points to consider are explained, discussed, and reflected upon with reference to examples and exercises, thus creating a practical basis for implementation in day-to-day business. 

A discussion between experienced trainers and course participants raises awareness of success factors while helping people to recognize approaches to improving their own practices to date. 

As an interesting module to develop skills in optimization, we are happy to offer your company tailored competence building and optimization workshops. Here, you and selected colleagues can apply, test, and deepen the knowledge you have gained in a real, results-oriented workshop (e.g. kaizen, SMED, 5S) with the support of an experienced Ingenics coach. 

If you have any questions, we will be happy to provide advice and support.
