Lean Construction Yellow Belt

Lean Construction Yellow Belt

Problem-solving is one of the key factors to successful Lean implementation; sustaining a Lean transformation requires continuous problem-solving by everyone in the organisation. In the context of Continuous Improvement, it is a never-ending process.

The objective of this programme is to provide participants with a detailed overview of how standardisation, monitoring and problem-solving are used on-site to practically to fix issues and ensure the organisation’s targets are achieved.
