Reasons to start this journey

We want you to be sure that this course is the right choice for you, so here’s a list of reasons to pick this Poka Yoke training. If those don’t resonate at all, no need to worry! There’s plenty of courses to choose from.

Preventing is better than solving

Poka Yoke is a simple tool developed with the express purpose of helping you prevent errors. After all, why put effort into solving problems if you can prevent them from ever occurring at all? This mindset and tool is not only useful within the context of Lean Six Sigma, but will also benefit you in your daily life.

Core Lean concept

Poka Yoke is a core concept in the entirety of the Lean methodology, and integral to its underlying philosophy. Continuous Improvement would be impossible if you would keep solving the same problems without ever thinking up ways to keep them from occurring.
