What are the course objectives?

  • Learn the basic definitions and terminologies of Lean Six Sigma System.
  • Able to visualize how Lean Six Sigma is deployed within an organization and understand why it’s a proven methodology that helps to save cost while improving quality and sustaining the success.
  • Learn the five phases of a Lean Six Sigma initiative: Define Phase, Measure Phase, Analyze Phase, Improve Phase and the Control Phase.
  • Exposed to a case study of a real Lean Six Sigma project to assist in visualizing the Define, Measure, Analyze, Improve and Control phases of a project.
  • Learn how to use Minitab (version 17), a statistical software widely used around the world to analyze data.
  • Experience handling a few projects/case study by collecting data to gather real experience in using some statistical tools.
  • Learn a variety of statistical tools and understand how to use them at the different phases of a Lean Six Sigma project.
  • Able to differentiate between Lean and Six Sigma and show why Lean and Six Sigma methodologies are dependent on one another and a proven strategic system for managing the whole supply chain of a business.
  • Learn the importance of Change Management in relations to Six Sigma Quality Management.
  • Exposed to the idea of how Six Sigma can be implemented within an organization.
  • To identify process owners, internal and external customers, and other stakeholders in a project.

Who should take the course?

  • Managers
  • Project Leaders
  • Senior Engineers
  • Green Belt Candidates and anyone who desires an understanding of Lean Six Sigma principles and skills. 
  • No previous Six Sigma and Lean experience is required.

    Do I need to conduct a project to be certified?

    No. However, in the absence of conducting a project, participants will be the assigned hands-on case study. This case studies will enable the participants to collect data and apply the statistical tools to gain an experience similar to conducting a project. Although these case studies cannot substitute the knowledge gained by doing an actual project, the simulation experienced through these case studies will play a role close enough to conducting an actual project. The following Case Studies will be assigned:

    Preparation of a Project Charter Case Study
    Developing a Micro Process Map Case Study
    Measurement System Analysis Case Study.
