Lean Six Sigma Combined White and Yellow Belt

Lean Six Sigma is an organizational approach to continual improvement which focuses on removing activities or items from processes that add no value (process waste), whilst minimizing variability of key process outcomes.

Day one of this combined course is an interactive and practical workshop and will discuss the history of Lean Six Sigma, as well as how the ideas, methods, tools, programme structures and roles can help organizations to meet their objectives. 

Following the first day of this combined course delegates will have a good basic knowledge of Lean Six Sigma and will have taken a first step towards becoming a practitioner or sponsor of organizational change.

Day two of this combined course will focus on the '8 step approach' combined with the '7 basic tools' provides an efficient, simple to use, and effective approach to organizational problem solving. 

This interactive and practical Structured Problem Solving course will provide first-hand experience of the approach and tools of problem solving, root cause analysis, and implementing corrective actions (a requirement of standards such as ISO 9001:2015).


Who should attend?

This course is aimed at anyone who wants to learn how the adoption of Lean and Six Sigma based continual improvement techniques can help an organization streamline activities, reduce waste and develop processes that consistently achieve or exceed customer targets and expectations.

This course benefits anyone who wants to apply an effective and structured problem solving methodology and use some simple tools in order to help their teams accelerate problem understanding and resolution.
