Lean Six Sigma Instructor-led Programs

In order to maintain high level of competitiveness besides upgrading their equipment and introducing new technologies companies also strive to change philosophy and mindset of all their employees, from blue collars to executives. Personnel who possess necessary knowledge and skills in eliminating wastes and causes of defects in work processes can have significant impact on overall efficiency of their companies.

Lean Six Sigma training courses are intended for wide audience of professionals, supervisors and project managers:

  • Yellow Belt Training is designed for making students aware of Lean Six Sigma basics. Yellow Belts participate in projects as team members. For more details about the course please refer to «Yellow Belt».
  • Green Belt Training - targets team leaders working on simple and average complexity projects. Green Belts know most of the Lean Six Sigma tools and play one of the key roles in creating continuous improvement system. For more details about the course please refer to «Green Belt».

These programs have deliberate emphasis on practical aspects: during each course along with obtaining theoretical knowledge students are given opportunity to apply new knowledge in their companies.

During the training students receive specifically developed materials: over 40 automated templates for calculations and efficient project execution. The templates will stay with students helping them in any future improvement initiatives.

If requested by customers all trainings can be modified for specific industry or company. Such adaptation helps students learn new materials better.

Instructor-led Lean courses

Lean Six Sigma methodology is based on two separate concepts: Lean, which focuses on improving work process via waste elimination, and Six Sigma, which strives for better quality of products and services through identification and elimination of defects’ root causes (which, in turn, is realized through data gathering and analysis).

If your company decided to focus on streamlining value added stream and elimination of non value added steps then Lean training is a perfect way to get your personnel up to the task.

Lean training program can be offered as one of the listed topics or compilation of several of them:

  • Organization of efficient work place (5S) and visual management;
  • Standardization of production and service related processes;
  • Creating maps/diagrams for production and office process (mapping);
  • Total Production Maintenance (TPM);

  • Stream building, production cells;
  • Pull systems, Kanban and Supermarkets;
  • Decision making tools and obtaining quick results (Kaizen blitz projects);

These programs have intentional emphasis on practical aspects: during each course along with obtaining theoretical knowledge students are given opportunity to apply new knowledge in their companies working on improvement of a selected production area or a process.

During the training students receive specifically developed materials which will stay with students helping them in any future improvement initiatives.

If requested by customers all trainings can be modified for a specific industry or company. Such adaptation helps students learn new materials better.
