Lean Champion

Acuity Institute’s Lean Champion course has been designed to teach the fundamentals of the Lean methodology and its application, especially to stakeholders in Senior Leadership.

When an organization is deploying a Lean initiative, it’s imperative that Executives and Project Sponsors are adequately prepared to support their Project Leaders and provide guidance when needed. This vital role is known as the Lean Champion, and they form an important part of a Lean deployment. As projects are executed, the organization will need this vital support. This course prepares executive stakeholders to play that vital role.

Course description

Acuity Institute’s courses are conducted online and use a multi-media format that includes audio from experts, examples of successful performance improvement, interactive simulations and quizzes, and the most current and robust tools and techniques available. This is a “self-paced” online course and can be accessed at any time—and—anywhere, which provides the most flexibility in completing the course.

We recommend this course to Executives, Business Leaders, Project Sponsors, and Department Leaders. Learners have two months to complete the course. On average, leaders complete the Lean Champion training course in 8 hours (average completion time, actual time may vary).

We also provide learners with our Lean Fundamentals Toolkit, which includes various templates for your use in implementing and delivering projects. The Toolkit includes easy-to-use templates for Candidate Evaluation, Define Customer Value, Spaghetti Diagram, 8 Wastes, 5 S, Error Proofing, and Force Field Diagram.

Here's what learners had to say about this course


For many of Acuity’s courses, we have assembled a Toolkit, which contains a complete, user-friendly set of the templates included in the course. The toolkit assists practitioners in keeping focused on their project work and not creating “templates”. For ease of use, the templates can be downloaded directly to your computer and are yours to keep and utilize in future projects. The templates have been developed in common formats (MS Word, MS Excel or MS PowerPoint).
