Course Weeks

What is the format of the course? The course is split between theory and reflective learning exercises for the first 4 weeks and practical hands on improvement for the second 4 weeks. In the first 4 week there are typically 2-3 e-learning modules and assessments to complete, and from week 5 is where you get involved with a Rapid Improvement Event (RIE) to complete within your business. Each week includes a live tutorial with your Sensei, during which you will get feedback and will be able to ask questions. These tutorials will also include input and presentation by Cardiff University.

How much time will I need to commit? The course is designed to be undertaken around your work time, but will be intensive enough to obtain real business improvements during the 8 week course. During the first four weeks there will typically be 2-3 hours of modules, assessments and live tutorials. Naturally you should also allow thinking and reflection time around this. During the last four weeks you will be implementing real team based improvement within your workplace and you will need to dedicate the whole of week 6 to do this. The following table outlines the approximate time commitment required.
