Course Details

Lean Six Sigma is a set of principles, methods, tools and techniques for process improvement in all forms of work and business. Most of its principles, methods, tools and techniques have been developed over many decades and even centuries…however the term ‘Lean’ developed out of the effective implementation of these principles, methods, tools and techniques by Toyota car manufacturing in the 1960’s, 70’s and 80’s and the term ‘Six Sigma’ was coined by Motorola in the 1980’s as the name for their Quality improvement program. Six Sigma, a data-driven approach to eliminate defects in processes, was introduced and developed at Motorola. Statistical analyses of processes are combined with organizational rewards. Six Sigma evolved side-by-side with Lean, and although once independent entities, they are now combined.

Objectives / Benefits:

Lean Six Sigma provides a comprehensive and proven approach for the positive transformation of any organisation by using its principles, methods, tools and techniques to improve the key processes that make up the organization.
Lean Six Sigma specifically offers the following benefits:

  • Improved Quality of products and services
  • Lower amounts of defects, scrap and rework
  • Improved delivery times
  • Reduced waiting times
  • Reduced costs
  • Improved customer satisfaction
  • Improved employee morale

Course 1 : Lean Six Sigma Green Belt

Description :

The 8 day classroomILSSI certification Lean Six Sigma Black Belt Program is designed for a professional who has no previous Lean Six Sigma training and requires an in-depth understanding of Lean Six Sigma Methodology. The Lean Six Sigma black belt Program covers tools and techniques useful to improve the process, reduce waste and minimize defects in the end product or service with a focus on the practical implementation of these tool and techniques in the organization. A Black Belt typically will support professional to lead continuous improvement and DMAIC projects in their organizations.
  • 8 Day (64hrs) Training
  • Process Improvement Training
  • Live Classroom / In-house Training
  • ILSSI Certified
The Lean Six Sigma Black Belt 8-day training Program provides the detailed understanding of the methodologies, tools and techniques of Lean and Six Sigma necessary for leading teams and coaching and mentoring other employees for reduction in costs, cycle-times, improved quality, and elimination of waste. The trainees will complete the Program with the tools and understanding of Lean Six Sigma methodology necessary to make both tactical and strategic decisions and consider the impacts of projects and changes at both an operational and an enterprise level. The training emphasises a disciplined and data-driven decision making approach for leading problem-solving project
