This Lean Six Sigma is comprehensive curriculum covering everything within the Lean Six Sigma D-M-A-I-C body of knowledge required to successfully prepare students to achieve Yellow Belt certifications and performance standards. We teach theory, supplemented with real-world workable examples in every section with Kaizen events so you can immediately apply what you have learned to your work environment.

They will build their lean toolkits by way of a real-world kaizen project. The boot camp is perfect for people who work in manufacturing or office environments.

6S Workplace Organization

The 6S workplace organization workshop is designed to deliver the fundamental concepts of 6S to your workforce so your organization can begin putting this powerful system to work. 6S is a powerful front-line tool for simplifying work processes, improving equipment maintenance, ensuring safety and product quality and eliminating waste. 

Flow Cell - Continuous Flow

Introduces production teams to Cellular Manufacturing: a process which involves rearranging traditional operational-based factory and office layouts into process-based cells that promote smoothing information and production flow by cutting waste. This learning package introduces production teams to basic cellular manufacturing and teamwork concepts and orients them for participating in the design of a new production cell.

Lean Leader, Facilitator, Coach

This workshop empowers leaders with the tools to facilitate ongoing process improvements. Leaders need to coach and train their employees how to identify and eliminate unnecessary costs.

Lean Six Green Belt

A Green Belt has strong knowledge and skills related to DMAIC methodology and Lean methods, they have graduated from Yellow Belt but typically don’t have experience and advanced statistical tools such as design of experiments that a Black Belt will have. Green Belts may lead simple projects under the guidance of a Black Belt or may work as a team member on a large project team.

Healthcare Belt Training

Lean principles, strategies and techniques work well in hospitals, insurance companies, and other healthcare facilities. It is excellent for VPs, Department Directors, Managers, RNs, Technologists, Therapists, Accounting, Quality Improvement Specialists and Ancillary Personnel. The course consists of intensive hands-on exercises including the completion of a real-world Lean Six project at your facility bringing immediate results. 

Root Cause & Corrective Action

This workshop teaches employees how to use a simple, effective 8-step approach to correcting – and preventing – problems or nonconformities that exist anywhere in their organizations. It can help to satisfy quality management system requirements for planning and establishing a process for corrective action.

Quick Changeover (SMED)

SMED reduces difficult, time-consuming and wasteful activities in your company, which ultimately supports your company's competitiveness and makes your own work much easier. The SMED system you'll learn in this workshop is the most effective approach for shortening changeover time. 

Value Stream Management

This workshop will teach you an exciting eight-step method for creating and applying a systematic process for the implementation of lean. You will actually be able to train lean teams in the process and begin using it immediately. Plus, you will see how leading American manufacturing facilities have accomplished their lean transformation. 

Lean Six Black Belt

A Black Belt has expert knowledge and skills related to the DMAIC methodology. This workshop is a comprehensive training covering everything within the Lean Six Sigma D-M-A-I-C body of knowledge required to successfully prepare to achieve Black Belt certifications and performance standards. This will enable you to achieve, sustain and maximize business success.

Introduction to Lean Workshop

A Lean implementation will reduce product cycle times, excess inventories, excess floor space, defects, set-up and other hidden process costs. Your organization will have less dependence on third party experts. This training is designed to be transferable between many industries and environments.  

Lean Daily Management

Lean Daily Management (LDM) is a system that allows you to deliver customer value through proper support and leadership to those who are closest to the process.
