Lean Six Sigma White Belt Certificate
An introduction to Lean concepts and Six Sigma principles is vital for building a basic foundation for process improvement. Our course includes an overview of the DMAIC process Define, Measure, Analyze, Improve and Control which is integral to a Lean Six Sigma roll-out but can also be used as a stand-alone component of process improvement. Students will be taught the roadmap for a successful improvement deployment as well as the key roles and responsibilities of a Lean Six Sigma framework. Learn to identify waste and variation in a process and increase stakeholder satisfaction through practical tools and techniques.
