conference room discussion"Lean/Six Sigma Fundamentals” Certification

The business world is constantly evolving to cope with advances in technology; process/product design, realization and marketing, environment and social interactions. Since the late ‘80s, Lean and Six Sigma have become popular process improvement methodologies for the industry practitioner.

Many organizations such as Toyota, Motorola, Coca Cola, GE, John Deere, IBM, FAA, United States Air Force and Boeing, require knowledge and application of Lean and Six Sigma tools for competitiveness. Although each can be applied separately, in combination, they become an explosive tool set for breakthrough improvements in the manufacturing and the service sectors of both industry and government.

This 40 hour (five days, eight hours per day) certification workshop will focus on the background, basic principles, elements and primary application areas of LEAN (three days) and SIX SIGMA (two days) fundamentals. We will also focus on the complementary aspects of each to develop an integrated improvement methodology. Participants who successfully complete the Fundamentals workshop will be eligible to take the follow-on Green Belt certification workshop. No specific background in any discipline is required as a pre-requisite to register of be successful in receiving certification.

Upcoming Fundamentals workshop dates are:

  • February 2, 3, 9, 10 and 16, 2013
  • May 13-17, 2013
  • September 7, 8, 14, 15 and 21, 2013.
