Active Lean Yellow Belt


Managementboek.nl is the expert in the Netherlands in terms of fast delivery of management books to individuals and organisations. Apart from supplying over 25.000 different books Managementboek offers additional materials and live events for business professionals. Managementboek partners with UNI-Learning for advise and realisation of the online learning experiences.

The question

Vincent Wiegel’s and John Maes’ Successful Lean is one of the best selling books at Managementboek. Managementboek wants to enable readers to activate knowledge from the books. The Lean Yellow Belt course based on the book ‘Successful Lean’ is the first online course in the partnership between Managementbook and UNI-Learning.

"UNI played an all-round role during development of the ‘Active Lean’ online training. Driven by project experience, didactic expertise and professional production skills."

Philip van Coevorden, Owner Managementboek.nl

Our approach & solution

UNI-Learning advised an Active Learning Program (ALP) based on the five basic principles of Lean. The live events, the book and the ALP together form the blended learning program for Lean-oriented organisations. Video lectures, practical online workouts, tests and magazines give a deeper understanding of the Lean principles.

The end result

A total of 50 video lectures were produced, in which Lean experts Vincent Wiegel and John Maes deepen the theory of the book with practical examples. The video lectures are followed by workouts to activate the newly learned materials. A magazine for each Lean principal offers rich context and inspirational stories. After following the video lectures, workouts and reading the magazines, the course member can test him/herself to check whether he/she is ready to work in a Lean organisation. The final goal is participating in a Lean assessment to aquire a LCS‑certification*.
