Lean Six Sigma (LSS)
"The lack of initial Six Sigma emphasis in the non-manufacturing areas was a mistake that cost Motorola at least $5 billion over a four year period." -- Bob Gavin, former CEO of Motorola
This Lean Six Sigma Black Belt is designed for highly motivated, visionary professionals focused on career advancement. The Friday/Saturday format is designed to allow busy professionals time to schedule travel and important meetings as well as work with customers, clients and teams. Professionals from entrepreneurial startups, not-for-profits, healthcare, government and education will find this training enhances their problem-solving and critical thinking skills for strategic advantage and provide comprehensive knowledge of process management concepts and tools.
Are all LSS x-belt certification programs the same? No! Most focus exclusively on Six Sigma and manufacturing. Some include aspects of lean. Others compromise content and quality. Our program fully integrates Lean, Theory of Constraints and Six Sigma. It includes examples from healthcare, software development & testing, purchasing, non-profits and the services industry in addition to manufacturing. When training participants from the software industry, the capability maturity model (CMM) is also covered and compared to Lean Six Sigma. As a result, no matter what environment you work in, our comprehensive training program prepares you to successfully lead process improvement initiatives as well as pass the ASQ Six Sigma Green Belt and Black Belt exams.
