Lean Six Sigma Yellow Belt Training: Course Introduction

Lean Six Sigma  is not an add-on to normal business activities. When implemented it is an integral part of the production process and management is driven by data and philosophy. Lean Six Sigma is a process which identifies the defects per million in a production/ manufacturing/ service process. Optimum production is at level 6, thus Six Sigma,  equates to 3.4 defects per million. Lean means getting rid of the baggage that slows any process down, and not just production. Together; lean philosophy and Six Sigma can help with any business; with production processes but also redundant floor space, complaints resolution, and eliminating waste. Important to note; is that lean six sigma is NOT about getting rid of people, but rather empowering employees to be more efficient in their own space. This course will comprehensively teach participants the entire lean six sigma concept, including practice activities to do during the workshop. We will teach participants the philosophy, the foundations of the process, the five principles of lean business, how to incorporate value, reduce waste, explain variation and minimise defects, and how to simplify complexity.
