Lean training for 2021

Back by popular demand –  a new round of Lean training takes place early in 2021.

UCD staff can book a place on one of the upcoming events through the booking centre in InfoHub.

Lean methodology is a practical approach to improving processes, reducing waste and boosting customer satisfaction.  

Yellow Belt training: Monday 22nd and Thursday 25th March

 If you are looking for an in-depth exploration of Lean Six Sigma and have a project in mind, Yellow Belt will provide you with a good understanding of the concepts and key tools of Lean Six Sigma.  

The course  consists of 2 x 2-3 hour virtual sessions – you must attend both sessions to complete the training. There is also a short Programme Introduction session which is held one week before the training.
