A3 Training & Certificate
Learn the basics of the A3 and build your problem-solving muscles.
What Is an A3?
On a literal level, A3 refers to a ledger size (11×17) piece of paper. But in the Lean Six Sigma world, it is a tool to help see the thinking behind the problem-solving. Don’t mistake A3s as a document to be completed after the problem is solved. It’s important to use the A3 while working through the problem.
The practice of using A3s forces project teams to focus their efforts. At the same time, A3s make it easier for a leader or coach to review a problem solver’s work. A3s become valuable coaching tools since leaders can see and provide feedback on the problem solver’s thought process.

Very easy to follow along and understand.
It’s a great way to determine root cause. And often can reveal several issues rather than a single cause.
I can already see the problem solving muscle in the employees I mentor!
An easy way to get to your LEAN potential. Will definitely become a Go Getter in the near future.
Very easy to follow
A great "Quick-Hit" course for the first timer or someone needing a refresher on this problem solving process. The price was right and just enough information. The only downside I found was the blue text was hard to read.
It is very easy to follow.
The pedagogy is influential and easy to understand. It helped me learn the concept smoothly.
