What is Lean Six Sigma?

Earn Your Lean Six Sigma Belt

In recent years, Six Sigma ideas have been combined with lean enterprise concepts to create a methodology called Lean Six Sigma. The ideas and concepts have moved from being solely for manufacturing and industrial companies to include the service and healthcare industries.

The Lean Six Sigma methodology views lean enterprise, which addresses process flow and waste issues, and Six Sigma, with its focus on variations and design, as complementary disciplines aimed at promoting business and operational excellence.

Our highly credentialed instructors utilize the well-known ASQ curriculum, combining it with real-world scenarios to teach participants how to properly collect and interpret data pursuant to leading problem-solving projects.

The certification is a validated 3rd party Certification.
