Lean and Six Sigma have been around for a few years, but only recently have people realized how well they compliment one another. In fact, they are more similar than different.
The most successful improvement initiatives today use a combined Lean Six Sigma approach, with much more success and faster improvements than either initiative on its own.
Lean focuses primarily on cycle time reductions, and Six Sigma focuses primarily on defects. When you apply the correct tool or analysis to any problem, you are almost guaranteed to resolve the issue if you have the right mix of training and knowledge.
This course provides you with an overview of Lean Six Sigma, how it can improve your company’s performance, what each initiative’s strengths and weaknesses are, why these initiatives should be combined together, and how your company can succcessfully get started implementing Lean Six Sigma.
How long would it take you to develop your own course? Hours? Weeks? Unless you can develop a similar course in less than an hour, this course will pay for itself at least ten times over!
Don’t spend thousands of dollars hiring a consultant to come in and speak in general terms. Use your knowledge of your company’s major problems to elaborate on the material we have put together.
Unless you can show how these concepts relate to actual issues that your employees deal with, you will have a hard time making much of an improvement in the way problems are resolved.
