Description of Course
On The Job Development (OJD) master’s course (LT-M5) is a continuation of the content learned in the Lean Thinking Advanced Course (LT-A1). This course is based on the approach used by Toyota to continuously develop their people. Think of this course as Advanced PDCA in developing people.
The OJD approach covers how we identify suitable work for people, how we assign work, how we monitor and lead the completion of work, and how we ensure a sense of achievement and personal growth. This is not the same as Training Within Industry (TWI). OJD is focused on growing and developing people. This course is a great complement to the Team Science masters level courses.
You will learn the importance of Human Resource Development, how to define expectations of management, how to identify the roles of managers, and how to develop your people through the practice of daily work. The outcome is to be able to develop people who can self-reliantly put the tools and techniques and your philosophy into practice. Remember, culture is the product of our behaviors, and OJD is the way to enable the right behaviors so the desired culture can emerge.
This course brings together the Lean Thinking masters concentration by showing you where all the tools learned in previous modules fit and align with the development of people. You will see how this fits in a PDCA cycle for people development.
Duration of Training
On The Job Development (LT-M5) master’s course requires 16 hours of training and can be taken as a two-day in-person training session, an online live virtual class, or as an asynchronous self-paced online training using The Flow System’s learning management system (LMS). This course can be taught publicly or privately to any organization.
Participants must complete the training before receiving a code allowing them to take the On The Job Development (LT-M5) assessment for accreditation. The fee for the assessment is included in the course fee for training attendees.
At the master’s level, participants will demonstrate an ability to apply the new knowledge and complete an online assessment. The master’s level courses’ application portion will be reviewed by peers and industry experts in their chosen field.
Participants who attend the training will have two attempts at the On The Job Development (LT-M5) assessment. Participants who wish to forgo the training and jump straight to the assessment may do so but must first buy a code and will only have one attempt as opposed to two for people taking the training. You can buy a code below by clicking ‘Take Assessment.’
