EDC - Lean Six Sigma - Hero - 1160x654

Problem solving and decision making are critical skills in the workplace. Why? Because virtually no business process works as well as it could or should. Fortunately, that means there are unlimited opportunities for those who can tackle those issues effectively. Lean Six Sigma (LSS) is about improving processes in order to deliver customer -- internal or external -- expectations more efficiently. It follows the DMAIC (Define, Measure, Analyze, Improve, Control) process, a logical, step-by-step, problem-solving methodology.

In this course, data-based decision making, and statistical analysis tools will be introduced to address the objectives of each of the five DMAIC steps. This course is designed to provide the training required to prepare you to earn Six Sigma Green Belt status. Through videos, readings, discussions, and assignments, you will gain a broad understanding of the Six Sigma improvement methodology, concepts and language, as well as a toolbox of process improvement methods.

Outcomes

As a Green Belt, you will know how to successfully deploy Six Sigma techniques to lead small-scale improvement projects within your respective area. Green Belts focus on gathering data and executing experiments that support the Black Belt’s effectiveness.

This course will equip you to:

  • Understand the flow and objectives of each of the DMAIC problem solving steps.
  • Apply Lean and Six Sigma tools to eliminate defects and reduce waste.
  • Collect, analyze, and quantify data to enable process improvement.
  • Participate as a key team member on a Black Belt-led project.
  • Facilitate the use of selected team tools.
