Course Description

Today, the terms “Lean” and “Six Sigma” are used commonly across industry and within all types of businesses from high tech manufacturers to insurance agencies, banks, and healthcare clinics. But what do these terms “Lean” and “Six Sigma” really mean and how are these powerful continuous improvement methodologies similar, and how are they different?  


During this two and a half day training course you will be introduced to both Lean and Six Sigma through a highly interactive hands-on simulation designed to help the student explore the tools and learn how these related methodologies can work in combination to drive breakthrough operational improvement within your organization. As an introductory overview, this course is designed to provide the novice with a basic understanding of Lean Six Sigma to prepare them to participate effectively with others engaged in Lean Six Sigma discussions and/or guide the beginning Lean Six Sigma practitioner toward the follow on training best suited to their needs.


The course will immerse the students in a simulated hands-on manufacturing process where they will not only learn the basic elements of Lean and Six Sigma, but will use those basic elements to improve and perfect their own simulation manufacturing processes. Students will leave the course with a broad understanding of both Lean and Six Sigma and how they can be used in conjunction with one another to drive operational performance within both manufacturing…and within a business process setting.  


The combined presentation, simulation, and discussion based learning format of this course is designed to provide students opportunities to learn from both the instructor, as well as one another. Time will be provided within the course structure to discuss student’s current interactions with Lean and/or Six Sigma within their current work environment and explore how the principles learned within the simulation apply to their own business process settings.
