7-Shapes School

The 7-Shapes School is an online school which offers modules, learning paths, and Lean certification training. Our modules are based on a fun business simulation. Our pedagogy, allows for the commitment of the learners and the effectiveness of the learning through the implementation of a virtual company. Our average commitment rate is over 80% and at 100% for the certification training courses!

The 7-Shapes School is available in English and French. We are planning to translate our content into many other languages in the near future. If you are in need of a specific language, please contact us: contact@seven-shapes.com.

The two browsers compatible with 7-Shapes School are Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox!

PEDAGOGY

We offer training courses for White, Yellow and Green Belt levels in Lean and Lean Six Sigma and also a toolbox containing the main Lean tools!

The free demo allows you to discover the different types of 7-Shapes School modules: notions, videos, mini-games, quizzes and especially challenges through our fun business simulation.

We carry out Yellow and Green Belt certified training courses 100% online. These trainings allow you to acquire the Yellow Belt – Lean Six Sigma certification and to attend the Green Belt Lean training registered with the NCPN! These trainings are organized every month and last between 1 (Yellow Belt) and 2 months (Green Belt). They are based on the corresponding Courses and 5 to 8 virtual classes. Please visit the corresponding pages of our website.

Our 100% e-learning courses are not certifying courses because a certifying course must contain some face-to-face or remote learning with a live teacher. However, they bring the necessary skills to reach a level similar to the White, Yellow or Green Belt and the owner of your structure may grant you a certificate specific to 7-Shapes School!

Each Course’s levels are unlocked as you complete/view them. You must have earned at least one Challenge and Quiz Star to unlock the next level.

If you wish to see a particular level, you can use the “unlocked” mode accessible in the settings. However, in this “unlocked” mode, your progress is not registered.

For the Toolbox, all the modules are immediately accessible.

Of course! Trainers use the 7-Shapes School courses in different ways:

  • Giving their learners access to the course prior to their intervention so that they can get the basics and know the vocabulary. Face-to-face or remote learning is thus used to resolve difficulties encountered and deepen certain aspects.
  • By creating working groups (2 or 3 people going through game phases) during the training. This method makes it possible to use collective intelligence to solve challenges, without preventing learners to return to the course at their own pace after the training.

We also set up complementary tools around our courses to help you in the creation of your pedagogical engineering: sheets with ideas for exercises and educational animations. Of course, we can also help you out in this process, so feel free to reach out!

Game

The business simulation of the 7-Shapes School course simulates a UAV manufacturing flow. Everything is calculated in real time according to parameters (costs and revenues per minute) close to reality. This simulation is the strength of our pedagogy: it allows the learner to put into practice the theoretical concepts seen in the other modules… just like in real life! But with the possibility of being wrong. Now, neuroscience proved it, you have to apply and make mistakes to learn!

Game

We regularly produce “customized” versions of the 7-Shapes School for our customers. We can put your colors, logo, workflow and even custom modules according to your needs.

No problem, feel free to contact us for this type of need.

If your course is in English it means your browser is as well. Change the browser language to French (or your own language) and the course will switch to French. You can also change the language via the settings menu (small gear wheel) within the route.
