Lean Six Sigma is a comprehensive and highly effective strategy for achieving and sustaining business success. Lean Six Sigma delivers bottom line savings, project by project, in an organised, proactive and highly transparent manner.
Lean Six Sigma is driven by a close understanding of customer needs, disciplined use of knowledge, facts and statistical analysis and diligent attention to a methodology to improve or reinvent business processes.
Our Lean Six Sigma Black Belt programme is a 12 day programme. The unique feature of our programme is that certification is only achieved on completion of a major project, documenting application of the learning tools and evidence of the savings generated. Projects completed by delegates who have attended SQT’s Lean Six Sigma training courses have yielded significant cost savings, (in excess of €40 million), for Irish industry leading to increased competitiveness/improved job sustainability/company viability.
Typical Lean Six Sigma Black Belt for Service and Transaction projects are yielding savings of €100,000 per project. This project forms a major part of the training process as it is only by ‘doing’, that people really learn the tools and techniques of Lean Six Sigma. For this reason our training is specifically designed to be very practical and hands-on so that delegates, once they achieve Black Belt status, can go on to lead major improvement initiatives and drive lasting change within their respective organisations.

Achieving Lean Six Sigma Success…Involves A Number of Key Elements
You must start by focusing on the customer and identify their critical to quality requirements.
You must ensure that your processes are designed and managed to meet these key customer requirements.
There must be appropriate measurements in place to understand how well you are meeting customer requirements and more importantly, how well the customer feels you are meeting their requirements.
You need to involve your people, ensuring they are effectively equipped (trained) so that they are able and feel able, to challenge their processes and improve the way they work.
Improvements are implemented project by project, using a systematic, data driven, problem solving and process improvement approach.
No change happens without the correct Leadership, Support and Management Behaviour, this is the real key to Lean Six Sigma success.
