Lean Practitioner Certified Course


What is a Lean Practitioner?

A Lean Practitioner is a leader or individual contributor who has a full understanding of Lean methods and tools, is able to use Lean principals to solve critical problems and has a strong focus on continuous improvement.  Within an organization, the Lean Practitioner is seen as a specialist, coach and leader when it comes to anything Lean and continuous improvement. 

Who should get Lean Practitioner certified?

The Lean Practitioner Certification course is intended for any person interested in mastering the concepts of continuous improvement and taking on a more centralized role in Lean and process improvement.

Some applicable job titles include: Quality Managers, Project Managers, Team Leaders, Operations Managers, General Managers, Training Supervisors and Business Transformation Leaders.

How is the Lean Practitioner Course different from a Lean Six Sigma Course?

While both the Lean Practitioner course and Lean Six Sigma courses share similar characteristics and topical coverage, the Lean Practitioner course focuses strictly on continuous improvement and the concepts of Lean. The SSGI Lean Practitioner Certification can be a great add-on addition to a Lean Six Sigma Yellow, Green, Black or Master Black Belt certification, and help you stand out as a certified expert in Lean Process Improvement. It can also serve to be a valuable stand alone certification for those who do not currently have Lean Six Sigma certifications. The Lean Practitioner program goes into more depth and also covers such topics as systems thinking, root cause analysis and continuous improvement.


Lean Practitioner Course Overview

Lean Practitioner training is 100% online, self-paced, mobile friendly and hosted on a learning management platform. There are no required software applications or additional training materials needed.


The primary role of a Lean Practitioner is to apply Lean principals to the organization in which they work and create a common sense of process improvement. In SSGI’s Lean Practitioner course you will gain the skills necessary to make process improvements and learn how to apply Lean methodologies to any organization. The techniques taught in this course are some of the most popular management strategies used for achieving quality control, eliminating waste and improving customer satisfaction. The course is divided into 20+ sections and covers the essentials you need to know to excel as a Lean Practitioner.
