Could you run your operations better with less?

Kinetik Solutions is providing a 2 day course focusing on Continuous Improvement(CI) with Lean methodology, as a foundation. The course is suited for the large and complex organisations. Our modules of training follow a learning-by-doing approach, using existing problems/opportunities in your organisation to drive your learning of CI, offering you the opportunity to implement sustainable operational excellence. The course objectives are:

  • Providing clarity around benefits of a Lean/Continuous Improvement based transformation
    • Clarity in definition of Lean thinking
    • International research data to show the power of this approach
  • Learning by doing
    • Allowing participants to experience some elements of Continuous Improvement using a simulation for the service sector
    • Highlight the key principles of Continuous Improvement/Lean
    • Time for discussion and debate
  • Understanding key tools for lean based change
    • Focusing on the key tools for lean based change, including value analysis, process mapping, root cause analysis, solutions gathering, change management and team working

A foundation certificate will be issued on completion of the course.

To demonstrate our commitment to Corporate Social Responsibilities, we will also provide 2 free spaces to any complex registered charity organisations that carry out significant work in UK.

We are also offering a course in London on 29-30 November and in Edinburgh on 13-14 December.

Here is a sneak peak of one of our tools that helps identify root causes.

Root Cause

At the end of the course the participant will be able to:  

  • Understand the key concepts of Lean via a simulation
  • Understand and experience five key lean tools in order to solve complex operational issues/problems 
  • Visualise end to end processes and gain expertise in how to spot key issues and opportunities 
  • Understand the effect that the implementation of change will have and how to proactively lead the change effort
  • Be able to champion a Continous Improvement based project with support

Who should attend?

This course assumes no prior knowledge of Lean.

Senior Mangers and leaders who work in the service sector, particularly in the areas of operational delivery e.g. Operational Director, Operational Managers, Customer Service Managers, Sales Operations, Sales Director, Maintenance Manager, Inventory Managers, Supply Chain Manager, Product Director.

There is a maximum of 20 places on this course in order to ensure active engagement and interactive learning.

Why train with us?

  • The training is delivered by our consultant who has over 20 years of experience, giving them a breadth of specialist knowledge in addition to a strong ability to identify with your specific needs
  • Our training is hands-on with practical exercises, ensuring that attention is maintained throughout, using a ‘learning by practise’ approach with an organisation that provides social good
  • We have deep experience of change management, process excellence, and innovation in our training; our experience states that sole knowledge of lean tools will not bring about sustained improvement
