Our private Operational Excellence training events offer the most critical information from our open enrollment events, tailored to your audience, industry, and operation. Our trainers can lead any of our core courses at your facility or we can customize instruction based on your specific needs.
Private Operational Excellence training can be used as part of:
ongoing improvement efforts
a company’s annual meeting
an event to launch the start of a new internal improvement program
a consortium or peer group educational offering*
*When participants are from different companies, our courses are taught using case studies and hands-on exercises.
What You Can Expect
At these more intimate sessions, your staff will get hands-on opportunities to understand the step-by-step approach for creating Operational Excellence throughout your organization. During the class, we don’t do the work for your team but arm members with an actionable method they can begin to employ immediately. Instead of using case studies, we explain how the principles of Operational Excellence work with your unique products and processes. This approach allows your team to understand how each step applies in their particular environment. Your company will end the session with tangible deliverables such as a future state map for one or more products or processes in your value stream.
Who Should Attend
Our on-site education on lean and Operational Excellence is geared to everyone from shop floor personnel to executives in any organization, including for-profit and member-based peer groups. Ideal for businesses of all sizes, small group training is available for as few as ten people. For larger class sizes, we can bring multiple instructors.

What Others Say
Our consortium is always looking for new content and perspectives on implementing lean concepts and principles within our diverse member organizations. The Institute for Operational Excellence stood out in my mind when I wanted to hire a facilitator to run a workshop on implementing lean concepts in an office environment. I had wonderful interactions with their staff and quickly gained confidence in their approach, skillset, and methods of training. The Operational Excellence in Your Office workshop was well-received by all of our attendees. Individuals walked away with new insights and were given the tools and curiosity to start applying the techniques within their job function. I appreciated the instructor’s level of experience, both in industry and in the classroom. He was able to provide great real-world examples and create a great learning environment.
Kevin Duggan’s presentation on Operational Excellence was exceptional and provided our attendees a great deal of information as well as an easy process to follow when implementing lean techniques in their own environment.
