About the course
Lean Six Sigma combines Lean Manufacturing (originally developed by Toyota) and Six Sigma (originally developed by Motorola). The application of Lean Six Sigma allows quality and efficiency improvements to be effectively realized. The focus of Lean is speed, efficiency and taking waste out of a process. Six Sigma focuses on effectiveness and removal of errors. When combined it can be a powerful management tool that can greatly improve an organization’s performance, by providing a structured approach to resolving problems. This methodology, known as the DMAIC (Define, Measure, Analyze, Improve and Control) applies in a manufacturing or service-based context.
What will I earn at the conclusion of the program?
FIU Executive Education offers non-credit certificate programs that allow business professionals to continue their professional development. Therefore, at the conclusion of the Lean Six Sigma Yellow Belt online program, you will receive a certification from the online vendor. FIU Executive Education programs do not award college credits and may not be taken as part of a current academic program in which you may be enrolled. The registration and payment for FIU Executive Education programs are done directly through our website. Programs taken through FIU Executive Education will not appear on MyFIU, and will not appear on an FIU transcript. In addition, you will not need to apply through the university as a whole.
Because of COVID-19, many providers are cancelling or postponing in-person programs or providing online participation options.
