Key Learning points

Over the course of seven in-depth modules, students are introduced to the many causes of waste, along with a study of possible responses to each. The Lean Management course ensures that learners have a good understanding of how to quantify waste, along with suggestions on how to devise potential fixes and to test the efficacy of each.

Starting with a basic introduction to the concepts of Lean Management, course materials quickly move on to:

  • Identifying the many sources of waste so that they can be monitored, including transportation, defects and under-utilised human resources and skills.
  • Tools that can be used by quality managers to assess the rate and cost of wastage, and the potential returns of any proposed improvement.
  • An introduction to Lean Management in a manufacturing environment.
  • An introduction to Lean Management application in a service-related business.
  • An introduction to the application of Lean Management in office environments.
  • A discussion of the key metrics that need to be monitored to identify waste.
  • A look at the other Lean Management methodologies that can be used alongside this one to deliver other additional benefits.

At the end of the course, students have the opportunity to test their skills with a practice exam before sitting the real thing. Overseen by a remote invigilator, the Lean Management exam consists of fifty questions which need to be answered within sixty minutes.


Students need to answer 35 questions correctly for a score of 70% or more if they are to pass the exam and earn their Lean Management certificate. However by doing so, learners will benefit from:

  • Having earned a globally recognized certification that proves their level of skill and understanding of Lean Management.
  • Helps them reduce costs, improve quality and speed delivery as they enhance operational efficiency.
  • Improved data processing skills that help graduates better calculate waste and benefits.
  • The ability to create additional revenue through improved operational efficiency, boosting ROI in the process.
  • Improved employment prospects, either by way of internal promotion or in a new role elsewhere in the quality management sector.

The Lean Management certificate from e-Careers is a cost-effective way for quality management professionals to sharpen their skills, improve their on-the-job performance, and improve their employment prospects. The Lean Management course is also the perfect introduction to other methodologies such as Lean Six Sigma which will further enhance the student’s reputation.
