Certified in Lean Business Practices [CLBP]

Lean is the fundamental rethinking and radical redesign of business and supply chain processes to achieve dramatic improvements in critical measures of performance. This new certification developed and sponsored by PHOENIX Business Consulting, will testify to the successful candidate’s knowledge and ability to apply Lean concepts and techniques. In addition to covering the traditional Lean Manufacturing emphasis, it also covers other business processes, e.g., Purchasing.

The greatest benefit was seeing the manufacturing process broken down as you recognize more clearly how reliant we all are on each others specific functions to make sure forecasts, schedules and requirements are met.
