Programme Objectives

The objective of this programme is to enable all employees of the group to gain a basic knowledge and understanding of Lean. Lean principles along with the original Lean wastes and how they have developed into the healthcare environment are introduced and discussed. This programme enables all employees to have an ‘awareness’ of Lean and how it is being adopted and implemented into the group. It touches on many areas including process mapping, structured problem solving, A3’s and how everyone can become part of our problem solving organization by submitting improvement ideas for consideration. It also may whet the appetite for people to progress to the yellow belt programme. By the end of this white belt programme, you will:
