Education

Facilities

One thing is the academic and theoretical aspect, another thing is the physical setting in which your education takes place.

We believe that the best conditions for learning are created when the setting is right. Therefore, we make a virtue of ensuring that you get a good experience when you are joining our educations. Thought has been given to the facilities and we have made an effort into finding nice rooms to conduct our courses in. We will take care of you throughout the course with delicious catering and proper course materials, so that you will get the most out of your day.

Gentofte

Lean Akademiet's Auditorium
In Copenhagen, we hold our courses and educations in our own premises at Schæffergården in Gentofte. Schæffergården is an old hunting lodge from 1755, located in a beautiful and green landscape. Our premises are located in the modern wing, west of the main building. Here we have a large and bright Auditorium with plenty of space for both presentations, group work and own project work.

Schæffergården is a 15-minute drive from Copenhagen city center with plenty of parking. In addition, it is within walking distance of Jægersborg Station, where the S-train stops.

Hedensted

Lean Akademiet's premises
In Jutland our courses and educations are held in our own premises in Hedensted. Lean Akademiet’s facilities in Hedensted is located among other entrepreneurs and smaller companies in the NORD Innovation House building.

Our premises have their own department to the right of the building with a large glass section and its own entrance. Here we have a large bright classroom with space for both teaching, group work and project work.

Lean Akademiet’s premises in Hedensted are not far from the E45 motorway and are easy to get to by car and have plenty of free parking spaces right in front of the premises. You can also catch a bus from either Horsens or Vejle, which stop just 5 minutes away.

Materials

At Lean Akademiet, we strive for making our teaching come alive, and therefore we choose to use a lot of graphic elements in the teaching. As a rule, we teach without the use of PowerPoint, but instead with our own textbooks, which you will receive at the start of the course.

In addition to a textbook, you will be given relevant forms, templates, printouts, etc. that are used throughout the course, as well as a pen and a tote bag. The teaching material will also be available through our online course platform, which you will have access before the start of the course.

Certification

All our belt programmes (except Six Sigma White Belt) are certified with the Lean Akademiet's own recognized and sought-after certification. If you combine your Lean belt programme with Six Sigma or choose exclusively a Six Sigma education, you will also be CSCC certified. In order to be certified in either Lean Akademiet’s Certification or the CSCC Certification, you must pass the exam on your education.

Your receipt email contains various practical information about your course, including location, teacher, and course coordinator.

Before your course or education starts, you will also receive an information email with access to our online course platform, where you have access to teaching material. In this email, it will also state if there are any preparations prior to the course.

Discount

Do you need to bring a colleague on a course, or do you want to send more employees on training? Then you have the opportunity to get a discount on several registrations.

Two enrollments in the same course trigger a discount of 10%. Three or more enrollments in the same courses trigger a 15% discount.

If you are a larger group of seven students or more, an internal course may be an ideal option for you. Contact us if this could be something for you.

Cancellation

Reservations are made for any changes in program, time, and place. In case of cancellation due to too few participants, illness or the like, the entire course fee will be credited and refunded. 

Cancellation of the course or education must always be made in writing. If canceled up to three weeks before the start of the course, 95% of the amount will be refunded. If cancelled thereafter, there will be no refund.

Catering

Included in your course or education is full catering. Like everything else, we have thought of you, and we know how important good catering is to create the right framework for a good course day.

So, forget your packed lunch for one day: we provide a good breakfast, delicious lunch, and snacks, as well as afternoon coffee and cake, so you can keep your energy up and your head fresh.

Transport and parking

All our course locations ensure good opportunities for parking - either right in front of the course site or nearby. There are also good opportunities to get there by public transport by train, S-train or bus.

For more details, see the section: Facilities and Location, where you are also able to find a direct link to Google Maps' directions.

Accommodation

Accommodation is generally arranged on your own initiative, but we naturally offer to include the accommodation in the course price.

Contact us if you need help with anything.

Meeting times

When you are attending education at Lean Akademiet, your course days last from 09.00-16.00. During the day there will be several smaller breaks where you have the opportunity to breathe in some fresh air or relax as well as a longer lunch break.

The inclusive breakfast will be available from 08:30, so that you have time to eat before the course starts.

Frequently asked questions

Homework

Generally, there is no preparation before the start of the education if you have chosen a full education, as we start from scratch. If you have chosen a Yellow Belt education, do not expect homework. If, on the other hand, you have chosen a longer belt education, you should expect a bit of homework between the individual teaching days where you work on your own project. This applies to both our Lean and Six Sigma educations. For example, you need to collect data in the form of process times, customer expectations or info from colleagues. The homework creates the foundation for your exam assignment and will thus also be included in the overall assessment of your presentation.

On our Six Sigma educations, there will also be teaching material to be read and exercises between teaching days. This gives you training in using SigmaXL, and a greater theoretical ballast.

You will receive more information about homework during the programme itself and in an information email prior to start-up.

Do I need to bring my computer for the course?

In our Lean educations and specialization courses, we work hands-on with various practical exercises and/or cases and projects on brown-paper. Therefore, you do not need to bring a computer. However, some of our students choose to use their computer in connection with their own project work. This may be in connection with data collection or digital mapping.

If, on the other hand, you participate in a Six Sigma education, you must use your computer and statistical software during the course. You will receive more information about software prior to the training, or you can find more information about this on the simple Six Sigma training pages

Do I need a project before starting?

If you have chosen a Lean and/or Six Sigma Green Belt, Black Belt or Master Black Belt education, you will have to work on your own project during the education. The same project will form the basis of your exam.

It is not a requirement that you have a project ready on your first day of education, but it will be an advantage for you if you have given some thought to what you want to work with. It can be an area where there are many quality errors, return runs and rework, or many interruptions and changes of responsibility. It can be a production area where the flow and lead time can be improved etc. If you are in doubt whether it is possible to work with this topic in your project, your teachers are ready to guide and spar with you. We ensure that you get a good project - which can give measurable results.

Can we work two together on the same project?

If you are several enrolled from the same company on the same programme, you may well be two or three persons on the same project. This means that you can easily work together on the project, collect data, and analyze etc. together, but your final exam will generally be individual.

Recommended literature

You do not have to read anything before starting your education. If you still can't control your curiosity and want to read a book on the subject, then here is our recommendation.

The book that we think describes the Lean philosophy best is: This is Lean by Niklas Modig & Pär Åhlström. The book is easy to read and describes very well what Lean is all about and is particularly strong on the paradox between resource efficiency and flow efficiency.

Remember that during the education you will get your very personal Lean book.
