Introduction to Lean Six Sigma


Lean and Six Sigma methodologies (Lean6σ) have been around since the late 1980's. Even so, many of us have little experience applying Lean6σ within a project management structure or within our organization. This course will provide you with an understanding of Lean6σ basics and the value they bring to the right type of projects. You will gain a vision for how to choose productive projects to apply Lean6σ. This course is designed for those considering Lean6σ projects future Lean6σ team members, managers who provide staff for or are otherwise affected by Lean6σ projects, and anyone wishing more understanding of Lean, Six Sigma, and how to apply these concepts via powerful process improvement projects.

Even well run organizations have operations and project areas where improvement is not only possible but becoming mandatory to keep up with the current high expectations of doing more with less, international competition, and flattened management levels. Changing market conditions, reduced budgets and staff levels, long working hours, increased available metrics, high turnover, and other influences demand our continued efforts to improve our processes, projects, and results.
