Industrial Technology

Industrial and manufacturing settings are rapidly changing as a result of technological innovation.

A technically skilled workforce is in high demand. CBIZ can provide you with the in-depth instruction, customized curriculum and hands-on experience to help develop and expand employee skills.

Becoming a Certified Lean Practitioner demonstrates your commitment to lean principles, tools, and tactical implementation to drive improvement. CBIZ’s extensive coursework gives participants the skills and confidence to raise questions, identify problems, and develop leadership in the transformation process. Take one course, or begin your journey to certification.

We live in a fast-paced global economy. Lean certification starts with the fundamentals and keeps you on track with the newest practices. Our three-tiered certification provides professional development for people in all levels of an organization: Lean Practitioner Level 1, Lean Practitioner Level 2 and Lean Practitioner Level 3.

The Certification program is “hands-on” and application-based. Each certification level includes a project or implementation activities, allowing participants to better absorb what they learn. Learn more about the Certified Lean Practitioner by visiting the Lean Practitioner section of our Training & Development page.

Value Stream Mapping
Value stream mapping creates a visual representation of all product and information flows, from raw material receiving to shipping finished products. By including all value added and non-value added (waste) activities in the value stream needed to produce a product, improvement opportunities are identified along with the logical sequence for implementing them. Then a future-state map is drawn to create the blueprint for Lean transformation. Applying VSM to a high-priority pilot process allows companies to demonstrate results that will assure continued interest in applying Lean concepts.
