Graham Canning secures LCS Level 3b Accreditation

We are delighted to be able to confirm that MD of Lean FSL, Graham Canning, has recently been accredited with a Level 3b qualification from the Lean Competency Service at Cardiff Business School. This qualification is the highest level possible within the LCS structure.  Simon Elias, Director of the LCS, commented that,

“This award reflects both Graham’s depth of experience and his excellent knowledge of lean. His submission was commended for cases that demonstrated a mature strategic capability with high levels of critical reflection and also for his lean thinking assignment that concluded that success in applying and sustaining lean, requires a whole system approach to be taken and in particular, a focus on the critical role of Kata.”

Graham commented:

“Studying for the LCS Level 3 has been a great experience for me. It encouraged me to reflect on my experiences with lean implementation across different sectors, and really challenged my assumptions on what makes lean a success. My lean thinking assignment allowed me to show my passion for developing lean within the context of a ‘learning organisation’. I really hope to be able to develop this approach with my clients and my growing network of Kata advocates in the coming months. I’d like to pass on my thanks to my mentor, Mark Palmer, from OEE Consulting, for providing first class support and guidance throughout the programme.”

Graham’s dissertation is titled;

The Problem with ‘Tools and Techniques’; Why Becoming a ‘Learning Organisation’ is Vital to a Successful Lean Transformation.

The paper concludes that success in applying and sustaining Lean, requires a whole system approach to be taken and in particular, a focus on the critical role of Kata.
