Why Attend
Come and learn the breakthrough methodology that can save your company millions of dollars!
The Six Sigma methodology is a systematic application focused on achieving significant financial results and increasing customer satisfaction. When properly deployed on carefully selected business projects, this methodology can lead to a significant reduction, and in many cases elimination, of defects, process waste and out-of-control processes which translate into dramatic business gains.
Course Methodology
This course is instructor-led and classroom-based. The instruction is a blend of lectures, applications as well as individual and team based exercises. Laptop computers will be used extensively during the course to practice on Minitab. Various exercises and a full case study will be used to direct and illustrate the implementation of a project. Learned skills are practiced and applied through individual and team exercises as well as individual projects. Participants will be able to apply the concepts learned in the course to a business improvement project assigned to them by their management sponsor. Games and discussions will be used to enrich course delivery.
