Lean Practitioner Accelerator (LP)
To achieve LP Certification via the the accelerated path, a participant must
- Demonstrate that all prerequisites for the program are met.
- Complete required pre-work before attending a two-day training event. This includes identifying an area and challenge where you will run a lean improvement event.
- Complete two (2) days of classroom training.
- Pass an examination given during the second day of training.
- Complete a training evaluation survey.
- Be lead facilitator on at least one (1) lean Rapid Improvement Event (RIE), which will include preparing for, delivering and facilitating the event to a successful close.
- Participate in remote coaching calls and webinars.
- Participate in Connect, our online community of practice.
- Keep a journal and develop other habits of reflective practitioners to get the most from your lean experiences.
All requirements should be met four or five months after training is complete.
PERFORMANCES OR TOP-LEVEL COMPETENCIES
The LP Accelerator program is focused on the first two competencies of the LP:
- Prepare for, deliver, and facilitate-to-closure 1-5 day Kaizen events, including complex events that involve rapid experiments without supervision.
- Identify, assess and facilitate teams to implement improvements for all the elements of PHA’s framework for a lean service cell, including demand; flow dynamics (push/pull and one-piece/batch); standard work for all key roles; 5S (sort, straighten, shine, standardize and sustain); and visual management for both work in progress and control.
OVERVIEW OF CORE TRAINING
The focus of the two-day classroom session is on learning facilitation rather than training delivery. Participants engage in active learning including journaling and learn-by-doing.
The curriculum is focused on PHA’s RIE A3 problem-solving process, which includes three stages – scope, solve and sustain – implemented in nine steps:
- Day One: Overview of A3 problem solving, develop balanced solutions; run simple experiments; hardwire essential behaviors; and initiate daily improvement.
- Day Two: Work with your PHA Lean Coach and learn how to run Rapid Improvement Events including preparation, delivery and facilitating to closure.
