Keep Your Best Workers Happy - Improve Your Bottom Line
Developing new leaders not only improves your business, it creates satisfaction and loyalty needed to retain top talent. Definity University's Lean Certification is a proven way to reward top performers and hone your talent's skill set while driving out waste and improving the bottom line.
"Definity's solid reputation for instilling a lean-thinking culture was a perfect fit for developing our team. Our four team members championed Lean Improvement Projects that resulted in sustainable cost savings for our company while adding greatly to their own skill sets."
- Mike Smith, Group Manufacturing Manager, Dayton Superior
The course begins with one week of dynamic, interactive classroom learning. This includes plant tours that demonstrate course theories in action. By the end of the week students will develop a Lean Improvement Project for their worksite where they will apply classroom learning to a real-life, results-oriented, sustainable project.
Students return to work for eight weeks to implement the project, supported by their Definity Partners mentor. At the end of eight weeks they return to the classroom to further examine key principals and to present their projects. Students critique each other, evaluate their success and calculate the ROI of their results.
In a word: SAVINGS. The average documented savings by Definity University students is over $193,000 in annualized savings as a result of their Lean Improvement Project. Graduates also bring their companies a new toolbox of improvement skills along with the confidence to tackle new challenges, lead lean initiatives and train others.
Our graduates become:
Better project managers
Waste and improvement experts at their workplaces
Passionate about opportunities to reduce cost
Positioned for greater responsibilities and promotions

Many organizations regularly send new students for Lean Certification training. By doing so they promote a common language that crosses departmental lines and transfers into multiple facilities. It is also a reward for top performers that increases worker satisfaction and develops leaders.
