Foundations in Lean Operational Excellence
The modern business environment requires leaders to develop responses to global competitive challenges that ensure the survival and growth of their organisation into the future.   The programme is designed for current and future leaders within any business operation who are looking to develop their people and processes to achieve operational excellence.  The core “red thread” running through the programme is that of integrating different departments and sections into a coherent whole, thereby delivering the full potential of the organisation into the future. Participants will focus on building the capability and capacity of their senior people and key functions to drive improvement, by developing their understanding of strategic and practical lean business concepts. This is done to support their drive in building sustainable competitiveness and to provide the opportunity to develop the next generation of organisation leaders.
Specific requirements for prerequisite documentation
The micro-credential course targets professional learners from mid and senior levels from the private, public and third sectors and will be open to graduates with a degree (or equivalent) with a strong academic record in any discipline from a recognised third level institution.   
Applicants without a degree are welcome to apply provided they can show a proven managerial track record. All applicants are required to have a minimum of 3 years professional or managerial work experience (this is in-line with entry criteria for other TBS post-experience postgraduate programmes such as the MBA and Executive MBA programmes).   
Language requirements for students whose first language is not English are IELTS 6.5 or TOEFL IBT 90 for non-native English speakers.  
In case of heavy competition for places or concern regarding a particular applicant’s suitability, applicants may be interviewed.
