Participants receive an overview of the key principles, strategies and tools used in Lean Six Sigma initiative and how this methodology can get and keep your organization on the road to success.

This session will also feature a process simulation activity – Dot simulation that will give participants a first-hand look at how DMAIC tools are applied.

The Lean Six Sigma course focuses on process improvement through waste elimination and variation reduction. It is applied on processes that are inefficient and ineffective. The application of tools are not restricted to manufacturing or engineering processes, it could also be applied to transactional process in Human Resources, Finance or Customer Services.

The course will enable participants to improve process efficiency and effectiveness for productivity and innovation gain.
