This Lean IT Leadership Certification course is one of four courses included in the new Lean IT certification program defined by the Lean IT Association. The Lean IT Foundation level course is a mandatory requirement for all other levels within the certification scheme.
“Lean Leadership” is model of leadership focused on cultural transformation enabling people to identify and deal with quality issues at the source or where work happens. The model teaches leaders about the importance of three core principles:
- Go See
- Ask Why
- Show Respect.
This 3-day certification course teaches the approach of lean leadership, focused on inspiring, enabling and empowering the organisation to continuously improve through the behavior of personal accountability and a view of value creation that includes all stakeholders in a value stream.
The course provides you with the knowledge of how and why Lean Leadership is different to traditional hierarchical or command and control models. It focuses on the Lean principles such as “Gemba” (Go To Where The Work Happens) and “Jidoka” (Empowerment of the team member to “Stop The Line”) to address quality issues as soon as they are discovered. Lean Leadership principles are critical to enabling an agile team which deals quickly and effectively with service and process improvement opportunities.
