District Support and
Train-the-Trainer for student Green Belt Certification.
Lean Six Sigma (LSS) is a team-based, problem-solving methodology used by millions of businesses and organizations worldwide.
Lean Six Sigma follows a structured approach called DMAIC (Define, Measure, Analyze, Improve, Control) in a path toward solutions and gains, commonly in the form of reduced waste or improved quality.
Why should I care?
Green Belt Certification counts as 6 of the 12 points needed for the industry credential pathway towards graduation. We can equip your district to offer a credential that counts for all industry pathways.
LSS is widely embraced by both
service and manufacturing industries. By equipping students with this skill,
they have a distinct advantage in the workplace. Students learn a structured
problem solving methodology that can be applied both personally and
professionally. Additionally, students gain confidence by being part of a team
that is improving the lives of either internal or external customers.
Is Lean Six Sigma only useful in manufacturing industries?
LSS began in the manufacturing
industry as long ago as the 1950’s. Since then, however, service industries
have fully embraced the concept of continuous improvement. Organizations such
as Air Force Research Labs, Caterpillar, GE, Abercrombie and Fitch, World Bank,
Limited Brands, Montgomery County Ohio, P&G, Fifth Third Bank, Premier
Healthcare, Huntington Bank and hundreds of thousands more have implemented it
with amazing success.
It sounds complicated. Will our students be able to understand and apply
Our program developers and instructors have more than 35 years of experience working with Lean Six Sigma. Over the years, they've removed any nonessential information to streamline a useful and efficient process. Using non-statistical tools
and very little math, teams are taught the tools that enable them to solve 95%
of an organization's problems. The secret recipe involves focused and empowered teams solving actual problems with the help of experienced facilitators.
