Excalibur On Site Hosted Workshops

Excalibur only offers its comprehensive learning workshops in host healthcare organizations. Your “learning experience” is balanced between individual or Team exercises (both in the classroom and in “live” environments), Instructor presentations and discussion, process simulation activities (not board games) and pre-course and after-class assignments. Class members will learn, apply and actually implement the foundation elements of a Lean System.

We offer the most comprehensive learning experiences in Lean, Six Sigma and Quality Systems in the industry and yes, we also know how to make learning fun.

At right is a representative listing of the specific elements of Lean Systems which we teach in our workshops. We offer this education in different formats to accommodate your needs and schedule. These formats are described below.

  • Lean System Certification (Ten Day Workshop)
    • Two One-Week Sessions or
    • Three 3 1/2-Day Sessions
  • Lean Practicum1 for Lean Leaders (Five Day Workshop)
    • Monday through Wednesday (Ten Hour Sessions)
    • Thursday (Eight Hour Session)
    • Friday (Half Day Session)
  • Lean Elements for Frontline Staff (One Day)
    • (This workshop may be videotaped and made available
      as “online” learning in your organization)
