What is Lean Six Sigma and who is this course suitable for?

Lean Six Sigma focuses on process performance removing waste and non-value add activities striving for a six-sigma level process of 3.4 defects per million opportunities through reduction of variation and data based decision making.

This is achieved through a philosophy to deliver and balance customer value and business profitability by removing wasteful and non-value-added activities from all business processes and products. Variation is reduced resulting in better, faster, lower cost products and services.

Results are delivered through a consistent, powerful methodology for gaining knowledge and problem solving known as DMAIC (Define, Measure, Analyze, Improve and Control)

 

**Note** - A laptop is required for this course with administrator rights to allow you to download the free trial of the add on software required for the week. Once you have registered for the workshop you will receive a link via email to download the Microsoft SPC XL, Statistical Process Control software.

The Lean Six Sigma Black Belt training and certification program will equip participants with the technical competencies, team leadership skills and change management skills to lead Lean Six Sigma projects using the Lean Principles and DMAIC (Define Measure Analyse Improve Control) methodology. The 10-day program will cover the most contemporary process improvement practises adopted by leading organisations and proponents of Lean Sigma Transformation in manufacturing, service, healthcare, financial, public sector as well as many other industries.

Business success in any organisation requires vision, products and services that add value, processes that are efficient, people who are competent and a culture that supports the behaviours of improvement and development. This course will address all these aspects with a significant focus on the cultural change and the role of the Lean Sigma Black Belt in the facilitation, change management and application of the tools to change a culture.

The role of the Lean Six Sigma Black Belt is a business improvement professional that is able to support the Lean and Six Sigma implementation journey in organisations, including assisting systems and tools implementation. They possess the ability to mentor multiple teams, monitor performance of all activities and engage leadership support to deliver genuine business improvements.

This programme will run over 5 months and will focus heavily on the application of the tools rather than their academic understanding.

The course covers the phases of a typical Lean Transformation utilising Lean Principles and Six Sigma: Define, Measure, Analyse, Improve and Control.

The methodology follows a structured sequence of problem solving techniques and cultural change management to arrive at a solution. Statistics aid in the decision-making process and help to validate the success of changes. Cultural facilitation embeds that change.
