Coorpacademy announces a partnership with 7-Shapes to learn the main principles of Lean Management
7-Shapes, through its 7-Shapes School offer, the 1st interactive training offer in Lean Management, 100% online and accessible to all, and Coorpacademy, an EdTech start-up offering intelligent learning experience platforms to more than one million learners, announce a partnership to train employees in Lean Management.
Lean Management is a work organization philosophy based on collective intelligence and aimed at improving a company’s performance. Invented by Toyota in the 1970s, this philosophy has led to the creation of numerous methods and tools that offer many advantages: elimination of non-value added, reduction of excessive inventories, improvement of deadlines, quality, and greater agility thanks to the involvement of all employees.
While most of the world’s large corporations have a Lean approach (also called Continuous Improvement or Operational Excellence), the training and application of Lean Management remain complex to organize. Indeed, traditional Lean training courses are often face-to-face, time-consuming and costly, and most of the time they are only aimed at managers and engineers. However, one of the foundations for the success of an operational excellence approach is that it be carried by all employees. 7-Shapes takes up this challenge by making Lean Management training available to everyone!
7-Shapes School offers a practical, fun and engaging solution to Lean Management training, whatever the learners’ level. The learning paths are composed of modules that are unlocked as the learner progresses. For the theory part of Lean, the 7-Shapes School includes motion design videos, interactive lessons and quizzes. But the specificity of the 7-Shapes School lies in its challenges and mini-games, exercises based on an interactive business simulation. These exercises allow the learner to put his knowledge into practice and encourage him to take action in the field, on a daily basis.
In order to train all employees in Lean in a fun and efficient way, Coorpacademy offers with 7-Shapes to integrate these interactive training simulations on Lean Management, directly on the learning platforms of its customers. This new option, in the form of an add-on, enriches the “Premium Content Hub” offer with high added value for the increase in competence of all the employees and the development of their employability.
In addition to this, Coorpacademy will enrich its content catalog by proposing two courses co-edited with 7-Shapes to understand the history of Lean Management and to learn the basic concepts of operational excellence.
