A Go-Lean-Six Black Belt is a “change agent” and improvement leader who helps identify, charter, facilitate, and coach problem-solving project teams. They may lead advanced Lean-Six problem-solving projects. Lean thinking, kaizen, empowerment, and problem-solving is part of their day job as they walk the floor with the value adders.


A Black Belt has expert knowledge and skills related to the DMAIC methodology (Define, Measure, Analyze, Improve, Control). This workshop is a comprehensive training covering everything within the Lean Six Sigma DMAIC body of knowledge required to successfully prepare to achieve Lean Six Black Belt performance standards.


The Lean Six Belt Boot Camp will be tailored to help organizations reduce the cost of safely delivering, quality products and services on time. This practical training, filled with real-world examples and exercises, is aimed at generating results. Participants will be able to use their new knowledge and skills immediately to make processes flow simpler, faster, better, and less costly. 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 and office environments.


Introduction to Lean Principles Strategies & Techniques

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 highly beneficial in any industry or environment. Intro to Lean will provide a broad overview of the Lean methodologies as they are brought to life through exercises and real-world stories. 


Kaizen for the Shop Floor

The philosophy of kaizen, which simply means continuous improvement, is the starting place for all lean production improvements. Kaizen events are opportunities to make focused changes in the workplace. Kaizen for the Shopfloor takes you through the critical steps in conducting a very effective kaizen event - one that is well planned, well implemented and well documented.


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. 

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.


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. Some of the Lean Daily management elements which are commonly used are Leader Standard Work, visual control boards, and daily Gemba (go-see) walks.

Six Sigma - DMAIC

DMAIC (Define, Measure, Analyze, Improve and Control) refers to a data-driven improvement cycle used for improving, optimizing, and stabilizing business processes and designs. The DMAIC improvement cycle is the core tool used to drive Six Sigma projects. DMAIC is not exclusive to Six Sigma and can be used as the framework for other improvement applications.


Kanban Pull Systems (Mixed Model Kanban)

Implementing a Mixed Model Kanban System is a comprehensive in-depth guide to implementing a kanban within the value stream. Its plain-language approach provides step-by-step guidance of the implementation, metrics, and dynamics of an effective kanban system based on proven reliable methods honed through years of implementation experience within manufacturing and non-manufacturing environs. 


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 flow by cutting waste. This learning package introduces production teams to basic cellular manufacturing and cellular teamwork concepts and orients them for participating in the design of a new production cell.

Quick Changeover (SMED)

SMED reduces difficult, time-consuming, and wasteful changeover 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. 


Total Productive Maintenance (TPM)  

This workshop provides operators, supervisors, team leaders and maintenance coordinators with useful guidance for total preventative maintenance. TPM leads to soaring productivity when your operators and maintenance crews are positively and energetically partnered in the maintenance of your equipment. TPM teaches specific maintenance activities designed to result in significantly more machine uptime.


Lean Leader, Facilitator, Coach  

The Lean Leader, Facilitator, Coach 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. Leaders at all levels need to learn how to leverage and harness the untapped skills and aptitude of all the associated they interact with. 


Value Stream Management

Using the 8 steps of Value Stream Management your team will quickly see ways to dramatically reduce the time it takes from order to cash. Constraints will be exposed, a Lean Transformation Kaizen Plan will be developed, and recommended. Your team will recommend ways to eliminate nonvalue added time by rightsizing; Raw, WIP and Finish Goods buffers using a simple Pull System tool called “PFEP” (Plan for Every Part).


Six Sigma - Statistical Process Control

Statistical process control (SPC) is a method of quality control which employs statistical methods to monitor and control a process. This helps to ensure that the process operates efficiently, producing more specification-conforming products with less waste. SPC can be applied to any process where the "conforming product" output can be measured. Key tools used in SPC include run charts, control charts, a focus on continuous improvement, and the design of experiments.


Creating a Continuous Improvement Culture

A continuous improvement culture is a shared value system that promotes the belief that what is good enough today is not good enough for tomorrow. Cultures do not change overnight. It takes time, patience, strong communication skills, and most importantly, trust between managers and their teams.


Lean Six Transformation / Leading the Lean Journey
