AUBURN HILLS – As part of Oakland University’s Lean Diversification Program and endorsed by the Michigan Lean Consortium, the Macomb-OU INCubator is offering two Green Belt Certificate Programs for business managers looking to develop excellence, nurture innovation, efficiently allocate resources, and eliminate waste.

Participants in the Green Belt Certificate program will gain the ability to tackle targeted concerns within a company’s value stream or operations, apply Lean principles to focused areas of the business and recommend ideas for culture change.

The 53 hours of classroom instruction includes an average of two days per week in the classroom, a one-day benchmarking visit for a Lean assessment, and seven weeks allotted for independent completion of individualized projects. Students will earn 5.3 continuing education units and an Oakland University Professional and Continuing Education completion certificate.
