            This book introduces a concept call the Lean Practitioner. Unlike Six Sigma, there have not been great strides in standardizing Lean Practices. While there are Lean Certification programs, most companies have their own internal certification training paths or in most cases job de...scription for Lean Specialists and Lean Masters which are granted after participating or leading in 5 05 6 kaizen events. The authors believe that the level of kaizen events should not determine a person's 'expert' status and have developed a true learning path for those seeking to learn the lean principles.
