Definitely an introduction to Lean Management, rather than becoming a specialist. But it was a good structure and good examples of the different tool.
May 9, 2022
Excellent methodology of examples to understand the course. The translation is important to ensure that more students can access the course
May 3, 2022
I'd be more appreciate if the course could provide more practical use case of each tool. The one given are either too general or simple that not explaining enough the benefit brought by Lean Tools
May 2, 2022
Good with required information .can learn many things through this course specially related to Lean. Thank you Rahul Sir
April 14, 2022
It's very informative, but lacks a bit of engagement, like the video is dragging on. But that just might be me and my attention span. Nonetheless, it's very informative on how to pass the exam.
April 13, 2022
This is cours needs more depth. It’s very superficial when it touches on the topics of required for a proper lean expert.
March 24, 2022
Its a wonderful session, explained clearly with good and clear examples. I personally found it very helpful. Thank you
March 8, 2022
Very good material covered an enormous amount of material. some segments are to short leaves you wondering why they didn’t combine it with the previous or next segment.
March 4, 2022
Course is quite a good introduction to LEAN but it is does not make you a specialist. Most of the sections are short and brief to get a good overview, but no much in-depth. Good for an introduction course.
February 27, 2022
Excellent course with materials that you can use right away on the job. I do like the different certification levels that you can achieve with AIGPE at an affordable price.
February 22, 2022
Great Course...Good Examples...each topic with small activity gives better idea...trainer has good command over the topic
February 19, 2022
It was a great learning, training material enclosed in the each of the lectures also very helpful to understand.
February 17, 2022
The course was a very interesting introduction to Lean Management and Principles, however, it is far away from granting a Lean Specialist certification/title. I wish that some of the exercises/activities had been more complex and not as simple and straightforward. Also, a mock test at the end of the certification would have been appreciated.
January 15, 2022
It has more "Hey everyone, welcome to this lecture. Thank you for attending this lecture. See you in the next. ", as the videos are very shorter 1mn, 2 min.
January 13, 2022
Good for beginner. For specialist, might need more detail topics into TPS and tools such as standard work, work balance chart, 8D Problem Solving, etc
