A question that we are often asked: “Why do you require a project to certify as a Lean Change Agent and not just a test?”.

Lean Change Agent Certification is a process that confirms your mastery of the Lean Tools and Methodology.

  • Certification proves you can successfully apply the tools and techniques to Continuous Improvement projects.
  • At the end of the Lean Change Agent Course, you have the knowledge but have not proved that you understand how to apply the tools and methodology of Lean.
  • By Successfully Completing the Lean Change Agent Project, you will confirm understanding of how to apply the Lean Tools in a “Real World” application.
  • Experienced Process Improvement Leaders and Hiring Managers will quickly see the lack of Project Experience.
