A3 Training & Certificate


Learn the basics of the A3 and build your problem-solving muscles.

Category: Tags: ,


What Is an A3?

On a literal level, A3 refers to a ledger size piece of paper. But in the Lean Six Sigma world, it is a one-page project report. This one-pager contains:

  • the problem
  • the analysis of the process
  • the identified root causes
  • potential solutions
  • action plan

…all on a large sheet of paper. The practice of using A3s forces project teams to focus their efforts while at the same time makes it easy for others to review their work.

Good, quick overview.

by A3 Training on A3 Training & Certificate

Short, concise and to the point!!

Quick and easy.

First time with A3 training. It helped me understand it better. I think it was great. I like the Bahamas Bistro example.

by Linda Lenick on A3 Training & Certificate

Very informative and love the example of Bistro. What a great way to explain the A3.. I totally recommend it for someone who is not familiar with A3..

by Julie Scaggs on A3 Training & Certificate

I love everything about! Everything they offer is presented in such a lean way, not one bit of information that is irrelevant. The webinars are so educational, and i love how they use Bahama Bistro in all of their educating tools, therefor you are already familiar with the project, and its not something completely new, and success is a for sure. Thank you for helping me be successful on my path to be a excellent project manager in the future.

Modules were straight to the point and easy to understand. This course was short and sweet but very informative about A3's.

great explain to the tool

I needed a better understanding of an A3 and this course helped me.

Great overview of A3 Thinking. This course helped to give me additional information on the problem solving process while strengthening my problem-solving-muscle.
