What will your team learn?

Lean Six Sigma is generally regarded as the best methodology for improving business processes. The techniques apply to anywhere in an organisation where a process is in operation. The process might be administrative, technical, production, transactional…you name it!

Lean Six Sigma helps people improve the performance of public, private and third sector organisations. It is used by countless businesses across the world to deliver better results.

This training will give your people practitioner level capability in the use of Lean Six Sigma. They will leave the course with sufficient understanding to apply the techniques in practice and demonstrate how this methodology is such an effective way of delivering better results.

Training levels in Lean Six Sigma reflect the belt system in martial arts. Yellow Belt is the first practitioner level. From that foundation, people can progress to Green Belt and Black Belt.

DMAIC is an abbreviation of the 5-step process improvement method of Define, Measure, Analyse, Improve, Control. This is an extremely well proven method for delivering improvement and is used extensively by organisations large and small across the world.
