Lean IT Leadership

Course code: Llead

Duration: 3 Days


•    A LEAN IT Foundation certificate is required for this course. 

Course Description:

Any publication on the application of Lean principles within organizations will mention the critical importance of leadership to the success of the initiative, or the lack of success if leadership is absent. That is why this certification has a prominent place in the Lean IT Association’s certification scheme.
