Global consultancy Quint Wellington Redwood (Quint) has launched through its Malaysia entity the Lean IT Association offering the accredited Lean IT Foundation eLearning to local professionals.
Jeffrey Doss, Quint regional director, said that together with its Lean IT classroom training portfolio, Quint was now able to offer, through its wholly-owned Malaysia subsidiary, opportunities for training on the global standard for Lean IT education and certification.
Doss said that 'Lean offers fundamental concepts for today's business, from design and initial set-up to operations and transformation.'
The concepts revolve around establishing long term results for customers and stakeholders, as well as several other key benefits.
"We are very excited to be the first accredited training organisation to launch this time and cost effective eLearning to support spreading the global standard for Lean IT," said Doss. "This eLearning will provide candidates a unique training and certification experience according to the new Lean IT standard, set by LITA."
As Malaysia's vision for the IT sector to act as a catalyst in helping the country become a high-income knowledge-based economy, this move serves as a solid boost to the field of technology here, he added.
"The eLearning course has been developed to provide participants a solid understanding of the key concepts and equip participants with the skills to manage, support and lead Lean Transformations," said Doss.
"Key to the success of the course is its highly interactive and media-rich format, which gives participants an eye-opening focus on Lean methodology and how organisational improvement can be delivered by focusing on the value stream and the elimination of waste," he said.
Professionals in Malaysia can use the industry-standard Lean IT reference materials and other resources to develop a clear understanding of the value and positioning of Lean IT relative to other bodies of knowledge, frameworks and standards, said Doss, adding that successful participants of the eLearning course will be awarded the Lean IT Foundation Certificate.
LITA (Lean IT Association) is a consortium of global leaders in the IT Training and Certification Industry with the mission to establish the global standard for Lean IT education and certification, setting a new reference point for professionals across a broad spectrum of knowledge and competence skills.
