What you learn

Six Sigma is a powerful set of statistical and management tools and methodologies that dramatically improve customer satisfaction, productivity and shareholder value. It focuses on reduction of variation in a business process, while targeting problem areas with pinpoint accuracy. Unlike other process improvement “programs,” Six Sigma enhances process predictability while reshaping the organizational culture to meet customer demands. It provides a common language to gauge performance across all functions and divisions of an organization.

Who should take it

Any organization, whether it’s a government agency, manufacturing, service, or healthcare-based, that wants to improve the bottom-line for their company and that strives to exceed customer expectations. Lean Six Sigma will benefit any organization with processes that require standardization and consistent high quality results.  Adopting the principles of Lean Six Sigma into your business will position you ahead of your competition.
