Course Description

Continuous Improvement (CI) is a really powerful tool that you can utilise in your organization or team to make changes that are quick, high impact and low effort. Continuous Improvement has been rolled out in organizations for years, but often this has been done badly. There is a right way to roll out CI, and that is explored in this course. We want you to leave this course with full confidence to achieve continual improvement and deliver tools, projects and full mindset change across your organisation. In the extensive course we’ll cover:

  • What is CI (its purpose, benefits and key methodologies)?
  • What are the main indicators that a CI Initiative is needed?
  • What are the main tools to deploy when building out a CI Initiative?
  • Exploring the importance of teams, communication and the toolkit.
  • Introducing key methodologies and concepts such as Lean & Six Sigma.
  • Understanding how to deliver CI in the right way, an effective way that will garner the highest impact.

Continuous Improvement has the power to deliver big savings, big reductions in waste and improvements to quality, customer and employee satisfaction. Deliver the CI mindset right, and the rest will do the work for you. And focus on that phrase mindset! As much as CI is made up of a process, a toolkit and several methodologies (such as Lean Six Sigma) it will only be truly successful if the mindset of those embarking on CI is right.  By taking this course and delivering on the learnings, you will see the power of CI for you, your fellow colleagues, and the wider organization.

“This is a good course for those who have no to very basic background on process improvement. The content is just right, not too overwhelming for me. The topics are discussed properly. I appreciate the examples given which make each topic easier to understand.”
Beverly
From Dallas, USA
“In my position, everyone suddenly want this kind of RCA, but no one really knew how to do it. It was simple but I felt I was doing it wrong. This course broke it down to the simple steps it is supposed to be to complete. Easy to follow and great examples.”
Athena
From Norway
“This course adds a lot more insight to the tool than you get from a simple template. I now know how to sell usage of the tool across my business - something I have really struggled with.”
Darby

Christopher

“Truly brilliant. A great flow, a really knowledgeable instructor and great resources. I have had some trouble understanding the delivery of Lean, purpose and method - now I feel so much more confident. Thank you Robert.”
Benjamin
From London, UK
“An absolutely amazing course. It has a clear structure and as the slides are present I do not have to make notes. Also - all of the important definitions are being accompanied by demonstrations in practice of the tool by which I could understand the true meaning of them. The way the course is presented is nice to follow, language is impeccable and the speed is not to fast. Usually in other courses from Udemy I can see a definition of a problem directly followed by example with a lot of fluff, but those extra unneeded false interactions with learners make the course only longer and makes me usually loose my focus. In this course I did not experience it at all. It was to the point and I have actually learned something that I can directly use in my work. Thank you! PS I will for sure follow the other courses of the instructor!”
