Lean Certification Course

Learn Lean to become Lean change agents

The learning of the Lean Kaizen tools is most effective at Gemba. However, academic interventions can not be left behind. The Lean Certification Course offers the academic backbone to the ever evolving Lean Kaizen concept. The course has been specially designed to facilitate learning for the working professional who have acute inclination towards the Lean Kaizen tools and Lean construction concepts but never have been able to find a right platform to learn it. We intend to teach them the tools and then in return they act as the change agents in their respective companies pulling the Lean transformation further. 


The certification covers almost all the concepts in just three levels namely, Bronze, Silver and Gold. The levels have been divided on the basis of the rising complexity and the sequence of their application as per the lean transformation roadmap. Completing one level means one has taken one firm step in the thousand step journey of Lean Transformation. However, we emphasize on the practical implementation by the professional who come and learn. To facilitate the learning, we use audio visual method of imparting the training. We also play games to ease the adrenalin, and give hands on case studies to help professionals imbibe the learning faster. The level-wise course topics are given below: -

To assist in attaining the vision, the Lean Certification has been initiated for the member companies as well as all those who wish to adopt Lean. The faculty is from Vedzen Institute who are regular practitioners of Lean Kaizen. The admissions are open for all those who have genuine interest in Lean Kaizen. There is no restriction to people who are coming in for the first time and have not attended the Bronze and Silver levels. The other 2 levels can be learnt when it starts again after the completion of Gold. There are certificates awarded for those who complete the levels with certain level of proficiency. There are tests to judge the same.  Thermax, Praj, Wika, Suzlon Energy, Garware Wall Ropes, Seinumero, and Polybond are some of the companies which have already enrolled in and have appreciated the inputs. The participants from Thermax have even started leading the Lean transformation in their own work areas starting with 5S in boiler shop floor and office.


Lean management has proven to be a philosophy as well as a science. For every science you need to investigate, observe, compare and predict to build your capacity to derive exact conclusions. This certification will help you to acquire the skills and knowledge to fulfill the needs in the field of Lean Management.
