KIAP’s training programs are the product of years of experience in actual process improvement and business excellence through implementation of lean across diverse industry sectors and organization types. We understand how organizations are set up and what is needed to grow them on the path to business excellence. The founding fathers, Toyota, believe in the kaizen way of implementing Lean and our program follows this same path based on the well known Zen saying:
If you do not understand, it does not change anything,
if you understand, it does not change anything
The only way to change anything for the better is by doing and hence KIAP training programs believe in “Learning by Doing”. The participants are expected to apply their classroom learning of concepts, tools and techniques during the program itself by diagnosing current problem areas in their workplace, taking up and completing at least one significant process improvement giving tangible results.
KIAP has accordingly designed specific programs for each stage in the performance improvement journey – the first stage is awareness about Lean and potential for improvement in operations and the business, the second stage involves doing process improvements to better performance and the final stage is of building a culture of operational excellence.
Lean Management Strategy
In any organization, an initiative like Lean will succeed only through the drive of the entrepreneur or top executive. This program is designed exclusively for the Entrepreneurs / Operations Heads/ Factory Managers and gives them an understanding about the Power of Lean in improving business performance. During this course they will diagnose their own operations under the Lean paradigm and assess the potential for growth through more effective utilization of their existing resources. They will be able to identify opportunities to reduce wastes and expense, to cut delivery lead times and enhance employee motivation and performance.
Lean Manager Certification Program
The responsibility for actual deployment of Lean primarily rests with the operations / SBU head and supported by the business / operations excellence team in some large organizations. In MSMEs, the entrepreneur or family member are often themselves responsible for implementing such improvements.
The Lean Manager Certification Program is an accelerated learning module designed to help develop such practicing Lean Managers who can quickly assess the problem areas and constraints in their operations, and be able to improve such bottleneck processes by implementing relevant lean tools and techniques.

Lean Champion Certification Program
The long term sustenance of any operations excellence initiative finally rests in the hands of the actual value adders – the workmen in a manufacturing set up and the frontline staff in a service environment. The challenge lies in creating an operational excellence framework and implementing the same by motivating and involving every employee in the organization.
The Lean Champion Certification Program is designed to help develop such Operations Excellence Experts and is tailor made for Business / Functional/ Plant heads of medium to large organizations who are assigned with the specific responsibility of operations excellence.
