Teaching and organizational skills

Change requires reserves! After all, only those who still have reserves are capable of change. Are you looking to establish a professional internal organization for your improvement process? One of the key duties of the head of the CIP office is to continuously extend the knowledge and skills of trainers in line with the "Train-the-Trainer" principle. The CIP office head has cross-functional expertise, is a sparring partner for management and employees alike and holds specialist responsibility for lean-compliant further development of the company. These duties require a profound understanding of lean management and BestPractice structures across all departments, as well as the willingness to assume leadership.


Through business games and theory units, you will develop your expertise in conveying lean methods and tools for your daily work as a trainer. You will spend 1.5 days working on real-world processes in a team as part of a practical workshop on the our practical partner's shop floor. You will work in a targeted way on your trainer skills and strategically expand your lean network. Continue to benefit from cross-sector expert contacts, even after completing this final training session.

The seminar will be in German language.


  • Expanding specialist and methodological expertise
  • Necessary activities at the CIP office as part of the lean transformation
  • Moderating the just-in-time simulation
  • Motivation theories, social and leadership skills and how to handle conflict
  • Effectively conveying lean knowledge, as well as analysis methods and techniques
  • Resolving a real problem in the practical workshop (1.5 days) at one of our BestPractice partners, including final presentation to the management team
  • Reflection on your own role as head of CIP office and the framework required for this
  • Plus: Final test to confirm content has been understood


Our three-stage training is both recommended and certified by the Institute for Production Management, Technology and Machine Tools (PTW) at the Technical University of Darmstadt.
