Lean six sigma training seminars

Some of today's most respected companies — including GE, Motorola, Allied Signal, and Sun Microsystems — have used Lean Six Sigma to improve their organizations.

Lean Six Sigma is a process improvement methodology that aims to increase value by improving quality, speed, client satisfaction while reducing costs. It achieves this by merging tools and principles from both Lean and Six Sigma and has been widely adopted in manufacturing and services organizations.

“Lean” is a process improvement-methodology used to enable the delivery of products and services better, faster and at a lower cost.

“Six Sigma” is a data driven process improvement methodology used to achieve stable and predictable process results, reducing process variation and defects. Essentially it seeks to identify and eliminate causes of error, defects or failures in a business process by focusing on critical outputs.

Our Lean Six Sigma program gives you valuable business tools to achieve process excellence and help your team:

  • Redesign flow to better account for customer and supplier variability
  • Analyze the root cause of product problems
  • Make informed decisions about cost benefit of a company project
  • Capture meaningful metrics to help know and grow your business
  • Experiment to determine best practices to deliver quality, every time

Courses

This course can be delivered in two 4-hour segments on a full day or over two separate days at your location or at Binghamton University. 

This course provides an overview of both Lean and Six Sigma and how their tools and methods enable organizations to improve process quality, lower operational costs and increase efficiency. 

Topics include
  • Implementation approaches and barriers
  • methods (5S, kaizen, standardization techniques, value stream mapping)
  • lessons learned
  • metrics and scorecards
Who Should Attend
  • CEOs
  • presidents/vice presidents
  • managers/supervisors
  • board members from industry, non-profits and government
