Could Blended Learning Be The Answer To Your Lean Training Needs?

When you need to improve or change or replace a business process maybe you are asking yourself some questions, after all this is a big decision!

For example:

  • “I have heard of processes such as Lean and Six Sigma but which is right for my business?”
  • “Are there any real experts out there with the knowledge and experience to help us make this happen?
  • “How can I involve my staff so we get real buy-in and lasting change?”

Acclino has the answers!

Not only do we bring 30 years of experience across most industries with us, but we also bring our own integrated Lean-Six Sigma Training methodology. The Acclino Framework.

All that experience makes us expert at linking Lean, Six Sigma and project management to address any business process issue for your business with a little help from our world class Acclino process transformation framework and methodology.

What Do You Mean – Lean Training Based Solutions?

Well, most business process transformations fail and often it is because the employees are not fully engaged with the process or capable of participating effectively, or don’t appreciate the reason for it, or it’s too top-down…

So, empowering and enabling your employees is a vital link in the chain. A key to successful change!

Our training methodologies provide this link – along with our systems and experience!

The Acclino approach gives your company and your employees many benefits as you embark on the business transformation process.

  • It truly builds employee engagement to participate positively in the change process and overcome many of the fears that plague most change initiatives
  • It involves them from the start and makes them part of the solution.
  • It exposes the company to creative ideas and the benefits of the experience that employees can bring when they know their contributions are valued by colleagues as well as management.
  • It creates long lasting employee capabilities that are essential to embed the changes in the workplace.

It provides employees on completion of a portfolio with eligibility to apply for a University of Limerick certification award of 3 ECTS Credits at NFQ Level 8

All this is achieved by using Acclino’s state-of-the-art Lean Training, blended learning methodology that make the learning process far removed from the traditional learning process that employees are so often exposed to!

So What Is Blended Learning?

In the world of eLearning, the blended learning approach refers to the complementary use of eLearning in the standard education model, due to the benefits it offers on a broad scale, to name a few, video, self-paced learning, testing and quizzing, monitoring and feedback.

At Acclino we believe that this approach makes the user experience better.
Acclino differentiates it’sLean training offering by incorporating state-of-the art learning technologies including:

  • mechanisms to facilitate a virtual classroom
  • live webinars
  • team interaction
  • chat rooms
  • gamification and simulations
  • real-life case studies
  • plus on-line, interactive modules.

This is our version of blended learning.It is the combination of these multiple approaches to learning that produces outcomes for the business and for employees that are more effective than what can be achieved by traditional approaches alone.

Perhaps you can imagine the buzz that employees generate as they combine these learning experiences with real-life business problems. So motivational and engaging!!

Lean Training For Financial Services

How Effective is Lean Training for the Financial Sector?

Lean training can provide businesses such as banks, insurance and investment companies with more productive and cost-effective solutions, therefore reducing risk during an economic dip. Lean training will also help to improve employee satisfaction, increase customer value and ensure the supporting activities are focused on delivering value.
Financial firms are a prime example of a service sector that cannot afford to be wasteful, due to strong competition, the impact of the recent financial crisis and vulnerability to economic downturns. Yet, it is claimed that at least 40% of costs in the financial sector are spent on wasteful activities that have no added value to the customer. Although they cannot control the fluctuating economy, financial companies can however invest in refining and redefining their own operations to ensure more effective and customer focused operations.

Financial Sector Explores the Benefits of Lean Training

The financial services sector is highly regulated with little or no room for error. Today the cost of quality and data accuracy is high on the radar for those organisations who want to remain competitive and build market share. Many banks, finance houses and data processing organisations have started to explore the benefits of Lean Training. There are numerous opportunities to transform and simplify processes across every financial organisation. Those who do so successfully will substantially reduce their service lead times, drive down costs and create additional business capacity.
All too often however, organisations that embrace Lean, try to run before they can walk. They wind up making the simplification process complex.
