September 10, 2010 – Bordentown, NJ – The Georgia Tech Enterprise Innovation Institute has engaged LeanForward to develop web-based training on Lean. Lean is a systematic, continuous improvement process that boosts productivity by reducing waste while also aligning an organization’s operations with its overall growth strategy.

Lean was initially developed for manufacturing environments but it can also help service organizations improve their operations. The online programs LeanForward is developing for the Enterprise Innovation Institute are unique in that they provide training on how Lean principles can be used to improve not only manufacturing, but also office, healthcare, and government/education sectors. The courseware presents appropriate content and examples for the primary sector chosen by the learner. But learners can jump into other sectors throughout much of the training to compare differences and similarities. This enables end users to learn how Lean can be applied in their specific environment while also helping them place the Lean principles in the proper context.

The Enterprise Innovation Institute’s Lean elearning includes two courses, Lean Management and Lean Tools. The courses provide specific Lean information and examples based on the user-selected sector.

“We are pleased to be working with LeanForward to expand our online training offerings to include training on Lean.” said Carol Aton with the Enterprise Innovation Institute. “The eLearning we have developed with LeanForward has enabled us to reach a wider audience than we could reach through our traditional classroom based instruction and has enabled us to further our mission to assist business and industry throughout Georgia and the nation.”
