Green Belt to Black Belt Upgrade Lab – New Format!
Streamlined Black Belt training for Green Belt practitioners
Topic: Lean Six Sigma
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 teaches you how to collect and analyze performance data, identify inefficiencies and problems, pinpoint root causes, and institute new protocols to greatly improve processes. In addition to teaching the complementary methodologies of Lean and Six Sigma, this course also provides skills in leading teams through the process of change.
Upon completion of this course, participants will be able to:
