This course is designed to train people who will be leading employee teams through continuous improvement projects, kaizen events and workshops. The skills needed by an effective team leader are a combination of analytical problem-solving abilities and interpersonal leadership abilities.

We include instruction on flow-charting, takt time, line balancing, work combination charts, set-up reduction methods, work standardization, 5-S methods, problem solving and more. The course also teaches how to organize, direct and lead employee teams to accomplish specific objectives.
