The Canisius College Center for Professional Development’s Lean Principles Certification is designed to meet the needs of today’s busy professionals. Focusing on the practical application of a proven methodology, the program includes tools to ensure your lean projects are aligned strategically with the enterprise’s mission.


In today’s competitive marketplace, customers have more choices than ever before.  If we are to keep our customers, we must continually improve our processes to be as responsive and as cost effective as possible. Lean is a simple, practical, and sustainable system that enables us to manage these seemingly conflicting objectives.  Lean Principles have been successfully leveraged in both the public and private sectors to continuously reduce cost and cycle time, while increasing customer service, product quality, and service quality.

This highly-interactive course highlights the practical applications of the most effective Lean Principles. Best practices for implementation as well as how to overcome obstacles and common objections will be discussed. The course learnings will culminate in a group exercise designed to underscore the importance of how all of the key concepts come together in a system.

Though often thought of as manufacturing tools, Lean Principles are being used successfully in many service industries, including healthcare, banking, government, non-profits, and other transaction-heavy organizations.
