What will I learn in the Lean Expert Program?

Lean Expert Course Topics

The program begins with self-paced learning on our learning platform, IMPRO, to give you a basic understanding of what needs to be learned, and then is augmented with live instructor-led webinars with a certified Juran instructor to reinforce learning points and provide onsite collaboration experience.

Throughout training and after, candidates work 1-on-1 in a mentorship program with their Juran Certified Coach to deliver a completed value stream improvement project. A completed project means using the appropriate methodology and tools correctly to achieve stated operational and financial objectives, as established in the project charters. Achieving results is critical and is a requirement for certification.
