ASQ Approved Lean Six Sigma Green Belt

Overview:

Introduction:

The Six Sigma methodology is a systematic application, focused on achieving significant financial results and increasing customer satisfaction. When properly deployed on carefully selected business projects, this methodology can lead to a significant reduction, and in many cases elimination, of defects, process waste and out-of-control processes which translate into dramatic business gains.

Various exercises and a full case study will be used to direct and illustrate the implementation of a project. Learned skills are practiced and applied through individual and team exercises as well as individual projects. Participants will be able to apply the concepts learned in the course to a business improvement project assigned to them by their management sponsor. Games and discussions will be used to enrich course delivery.

Course Objectives:

At the end of this conference the participants will be able to:

  • Develop the Six Sigma methodology and apply its roadmap.
  • Apply the principles of the Six Sigma 'DMAIC' performance improvement model.
  • Examine in detail the various elements of building a complete project for improvement.
  • Develop statistical hypotheses using simple statistical tools.
  • Use quantifiable tools to solve problems related to an improvement project.
  • Eliminate waste and defects by applying Lean and Six Sigma.
  • Collect, analyze, and quantify data that enable process improvements.
  • Employ statistical analysis using statistical tools and software.

Targeted Audience:

Individuals from all organization departments including finance, quality and business operations staff functions as well as those who have direct intervention as process owners or stakeholders.
