Six Sigma is probably the hottest improvement approach around today. Developed by Motorola, and applied by Boeing, Kodak, Digital and many others – it was the success enjoyed by GE that brought it to full industry attention. From manufacturing it then moved into the service sector with major verifiable cost savings being achieved, in particular, in financial services. Later applications have covered all sectors including the public sector.
This three-day Six Sigma Yellow Belt programme is designed for people who want to improve quality, efficiency and productivity in a team and potentially progress to be improvement project leaders (Green or Black Belts). It introduces the Six Sigma approach, roles and toolkit. The DMAIC methodology and project management requirements are developed as well as Process Mapping, Data Capture and Analysis, Value Stream Analysis and statistical thinking, analysis & tools.
This programme provides basic skills training to enable participants to commence their own application of Six Sigma principles and techniques within their own organisations.
