5S and Kaizen for Process Improvement

This 5S and Kaizen Training, in particular, is a highly engaging and interactive course that ensures better internalization of these 2 process improvement concepts and principles. With this course, participants will get to work through the course rather than just listening for higher retention of concepts and theory. Exercises, practical implementations, and case studies will also be integrated into the course to demonstrate and bring to life the concepts being taught.

Our courses always utilize a combination of practical fun workshops, lectures, case studies, and engaging discussions, group, and individual exercises, all aligned with global best practices, in order to draw the interest of the participants and to have a lasting effect on their related work performance
