This highly interactive 1 day internationally recognised training program is designed for those people who require a basic understanding of the techniques and principles of Lean 6 Sigma.

What is Lean Six Sigma?

Lean Six Sigma is a set of principles, methods, tools and techniques for process improvement in all forms of work and business. Most of its principles, methods, tools and techniques have been developed over many decades and even centuries…however the term ‘Lean’ developed out of the effective implementation of these principles, methods, tools and techniques by Toyota car manufacturing in the 1960’s, 70’s and 80’s and the term ‘Six Sigma’ was coined by Motorola in the 1980’s as the name for their Quality improvement program.

Six Sigma, a data-driven approach to eliminate defects in processes, was introduced and developed at Motorola. Statistical analyses of processes are combined with organizational rewards. Six Sigma evolved side-by-side with Lean, and although can be used as independent entities, they also complement each other very well.
