Lean Six-Sigma Green Belt Certification

Overview

This interactive workshop is designed for participants to understand the concepts, tools and techniques of six-sigma, be able to lead small improvement teams and to sit for the American Society for Quality certification examination.

Most experienced facilitators and six-sigma practitioners.

Highlights:

  • understand and learn how to make organisational problems visible
  • learn where lean, six-sigma, Kaizen and other techniques can (and can’t) help effectively
  • understanding the voice of the customer(thoughout the organisation)
  • understanding the power of the voice of the employee
  • basic financial calculations to validate improvement contribution
  • basic risk assessment and mitigation
  • receive on-going coaching if required


Workshop:
  • a quick pre workshop questionnaire for the participant
  • interactive, problem-solving style workshop
  • acronym soup – where and when to use each technique and why
  • brief lecture, learning by example
  • led by a serially successful team lead executive, lean six-sigma master black belt
Description:

Process management as a concept has been in existence almost 100 years and still produces very impressive results when used properly. There are a lot of organisations claiming to use these techniques, but levels of customer service and process predictability for customers demonstrates there is a long way to go yet.

We define the terms and basic building blocks of process management techniques and survey what can be gained from the international standards, but also dispel myths that are commonly held views but not very helpful. Participants receive guidance on sitting for the American Society for Quality certification exam.

Throughout the workshop, participants receive tools to help on their process or quality improvement journey, and there is time allotted to practice them. This programme is supported by a number of online tools that are available to participants following the workshop, including the ability to contact the facilitator for guidance after the workshop ends.
