Come and learn the breakthrough methodology that can save your company millions of dollars!
The Six Sigma methodology is a systematic application focused on achieving significant financial results and increasing customer satisfaction. When properly deployed on carefully selected business projects, this methodology can lead to a significant reduction, and in many cases elimination, of defects, process waste and out-of-control processes which translate into dramatic business gains.
This ASQ Approved Lean Six Sigma Green Belt course teaches participants the Define, Measure, Analyze, Improve and Control (DMAIC) methodology using case studies from various industries. Participants will learn to define improvement projects to satisfy customers and reduce variation. This 'Lean Six Sigma' training course will teach and prepare individuals to implement the principles, practices, and techniques of 'Lean Six Sigma'. Green belts traditionally lead process stakeholders and may be assigned specific process level improvement projects that normally do not require the statistical rigor demonstrated by a black belt. This course is quite intense and challenging yet satisfying in terms of the knowledge gained in 5 days.
This course is instructor-led and classroom-based. The instruction is a blend of lectures, applications as well as individual and team based exercises. Laptop computers will be used extensively during the course to practice on Minitab. Various exercises and a full case study will be used to direct and illustrate the implementation of a project. Learned skills are practiced and applied through individual and team exercises as well as individual projects. Participants will be able to apply the concepts learned in the course to a business improvement project assigned to them by their management sponsor. Games and discussions will be used to enrich course delivery.
Individuals from all organization departments including finance, quality and business operations staff functions as well as those who have direct intervention as process owners or stakeholders.
