In March of 2020, Lean Methods Group like many other businesses was faced with the sobering reality that business models reliant on brick and mortar were at grave risk. Our first reaction was to recreate the classroom experience using a camera, laptop, and whiteboard while adhering to the rules of time and space created centuries ago and modified over time to accommodate air travel. (5 days x 8 hours)

We quickly learned that eight solid hours of virtual training while home with the pets, kids and spouse was untenable for our participants and all of us were craving more meaningful collaborative interactions with other professionals.
Through our experiences of the last two years and the voice of our customers, Lean Methods has created a world-class, virtually delivered certification program. Whether candidates are at home or office, they can enjoy, learn and practice applying the tools and methods to receive a Lean Six Sigma certification.

Following the disciplined Six Sigma DMAIC (Define-Measure-Analyze-Improve-Control) road map, this course develops Lean Six Sigma Green Belts into Black Belts who can solve more challenging problems and lead improvement teams across a wider spectrum of processes in any environment, including transactional, service, manufacturing, healthcare and financial.

Learning Objectives

Upon completion of this course, participants will be able to:

  • Apply such Lean concepts as 5S, waste reduction, process mapping, value stream mapping and mistake proofing.
  • Define, scope and execute DMAIC projects.
  • Apply a variety of DMAIC tools to business issues and transition projects from phase to phase.
  • Apply basic and more advanced statistical analyses to determine the relationship between key inputs and process outputs.
  • Effectively manage team dynamics and understand how to work with multiple levels of leadership to remove barriers and achieve project success.
  • Close projects and hand over control to process owners.
  • Present projects to instructors, peers and managers.
