A3 Problem Solving and Mistake Proofing Training (Online)


Our self-paced online A3 Problem Solving and Mistake Proofing training program covers all of the topics our classroom version covers. In this A3 Problem Solving class, you will learn to become an A3 Thinker. You will learn how to properly define problems, how to analyze problems using gap analysis / root cause analysis tools, how to appropriately select and implement countermeasures, and how to sustain the gains. You will also learn how to utilize poka yoke or mistake proofing as needed. The format includes audio-visual presentation, case studies, and a final quiz. And, like our classroom version, students will have the ability to contact the instructor with questions, requests for feedback on ideas and case exercises.  The program is self-paced and up to 3 months are allotted to complete it; students will have access to the program for 1 year. Upon completion, students will receive an electronic certificate of completion.
