Lean Six Sigma is the combination of the two most effective business improvement initiatives of the past two decades. Lean, pioneered by Toyota, seeks to minimise waste and optimise the speed of a process. Six Sigma, pioneered by Motorola, seeks to minimise defects and maximise process capability. The marriage of Lean and Six Sigma has combined the best of both into a powerful weapon against waste and variation, enabling significant process improvements across all industries.
This three day Yellow Belt programme uses a targeted and supported team based approach to project based problem solving. The recommended approach is to set-up a number of teams (with 3-4 members on each team), each team will apply the DMAIC methodology (Define, Measure, Analyse, Improve and Control) to a well-defined process improvement opportunity. The programme structure is as follows:
The course has little or no statistical content and will focus on identifying waste, using team tools, connecting knowledge based tools and identifying data collection requirements to improve process learning. The ideal spacing between Day 1 and 2 is three weeks with the same gap to the Day 3 mentoring Day.Collapse
