Kaizen Leader Online Certification
Acuity Institute’s Kaizen Leader online course has been designed to teach Kaizen fundamentals and their application. It is intended for facilitators and participants of a Kaizen Event.
Kaizen is a problem-solving approach that applies process improvement in a structured setting. A Kaizen Event is a concentrated team-oriented effort to rapidly improve the performance of a process. The goal of Kaizen is to eliminate activities in processes that add cost but do not add value. A Kaizen Event is an extremely efficient method to quickly improve poor-performing processes. In today’s fast-paced environment, business leaders want immediate results. If done correctly, a Kaizen Event is accomplished in 5 days or less.
This Kaizen certification training is conducted online and uses a multi-media format that includes audio by Kaizen experts, examples of successful performance improvement, interactive simulations and quizzes, and the most current and robust tools and techniques available. The course is “self-paced” and can be accessed at any time – anywhere, which provides the most flexibility in completing the course. On average students complete the course in 13 hours (average completion time, actual time may vary).

No prerequisites required
Included in this course is Acuity Institute’s Kaizen Event Simulation. The simulation is based on a hypothetical service/transactional company that faces many of the same problems companies are dealing with today. The simulation is designed to illustrate an entire Kaizen Event through every phase of the Kaizen PDCA methodology. You will complete challenging exercises which build on previously learned tools and concepts taught in this course.
At Acuity we recognize that not every individual has the opportunity to complete an actual Kaizen Event while completing training. After completing the simulation, you will have a significant perspective on what true Kaizen business improvement means. There is no comparison of this simulation in the marketplace today.
We also provide learners with our Kaizen Toolkit, which includes various templates for your use in implementing the Kaizen methodology. It includes easy-to-use templates for: Agenda, Charter, Communication Plan, Data Collection Plan, Five Whys, Process Value Analysis, Quick Win Opportunities, SIPOC, and more.
