What People Are Saying About the Course
  • The Lean Leader course fills the ‘missing link’ within industry Lean training by concentrating on the importance of people and change management when entrenching lean in an organization.  While fairly straight forward concepts, the content and the fundamentals are so critically important for team success.  The course was the best online course I have ever taken by far in terms of mixed learning approaches and the professionalism placed into the material. 

  • The class was OUTSTANDING! The perfect balance of on-line learning, testimonials, group reflection, and applied learning assignments. The PEOPLE book was well written and easy to follow. I suggest that all of the organization from team leads to top management attend the training. This training helped me understand new ways to apply the concepts and see the total picture. Thank you for sharing the experience and helping us through the process.

  • I really enjoyed taking this course! I have taken other lean courses and the information provided is very theoretical and more 'old fashioned.' LeanCor teaches lean in a very simple and practical way with real life examples.

  • Focused on the human side of leadership.
