In addition for each subject we use a Visual Poster to teach & coach through your “Lean Learning Journey”
Firstly you need to develop some basic Knowledge of the subject – Skill Level 1
This is what the Skill Level 1 courses on our platform aim to achieve for MUDA – The 8 Lean Wastes.
However this is actually where most class-room or on-line education stops.
Secondly Skill Level 2 courses encourage people to learn more deeply about the subject area before being able to practically apply it in Skill Level 3 and lastly become capable to teach others in Skill Level 4
To develop your thinking & practice through each skill level we use a Four Step “Guided Learning Path” which follows the Plan-Do-Check-Act cycle.
Finally learn more about the approach by clicking the Lean Learning Journey button:
