Lean and Six Sigma are both process improvement approaches where ‘Lean’ focuses on reducing waste and delivering value for the client and ‘Six Sigma’ focuses on reducing variation and eliminating defects.
ISO 18404:2015 is the international standard for Lean and Six Sigma that defines the required competencies for people and businesses adopting these two approaches. Before the publication of ISO 18404, there was no single agreement as to what these competencies were, for example, what constitutes a ‘Black Belt’ or ‘Green Belt’, or what is required in an organisation which uses these two approaches.
Bywater delivers a range of Lean and Six Sigma training courses and programmes based on the principles of ISO 18404 in partnership with some of the world’s leading experts in these fields. We can teach you how to think ‘lean’ and how to use methodologies and tools and techniques and apply them to improve customer satisfaction and drive continual improvement within your organisation. We offer tailored, bespoke training interventions as well as public training courses and encourage you to contact us to discuss your particular requirements. Courses include:
