Jan. 28, 2011 - PRLog -- ATLANTA, GA  - Building on the success of their first year, LeanCor and the Georgia Tech Supply Chain & Logistics Institute will resume the Lean Supply Chain Professional Certificate Program this February. The three courses will be held February 1-3, March 15-17, and April 12-14, 2011.

Focusing on building the lean supply chain professional, this program changes how supply chain professionals think, act, and lead by teaching them to develop and implement strategic and tactical elements of lean principles in the supply chain. Program results include:

•   Reduced total cost of ownership and logistics costs, inventory levels, lead time, and space requirements
•   Increased fill rates
•   Improved supplier performance and accountability
•   Improved customer satisfaction and customer relationships
•   Overall reduction of organizational and operational waste

"Successful organizations going forward will be those that focus on the customer, eliminate all non value-added activities, reduce lead times and inventories, and build leaders who can navigate the supply chain from a cross-functional perspective.” Martichenko, senior course lecturer and CEO of LeanCor, added that “when lean is successfully implemented in the supply chain, revenue will go up and costs will go down. This is the model of margin management and cash flow improvement required for today's success.”

"I will be able to apply everything I learned in this course to my profession,” said a recent student. The tools we were given in the workbook binder will always serve as an exceptional reference. Having the templates of the different tools will be great to use right away. All my co-workers will benefit from me going to this course."
