Introduction to Lean Six Sigma Training Online

This training introduces learners to the fundamentals of Lean and Six Sigma and presents them as complementary, additive methodologies that focus on both waste and variation reduction. Organizations often use Introduction to Lean Six Sigma Training as their White Belt training because it provides a good overview of the philosophy of Lean Six Sigma and introduces key terminology and methodologies used in Lean Six Sigma organizations. Value stream mapping, elimination of waste, the 5S’s and the DMAIC project cycle are presented conceptually and cornerstone tools of Lean Six Sigma.

This course includes examples of how Lean Six Sigma can be effectively applied in manufacturing, the office, order entry, warehousing and distribution, sales and R&D. Participants also gain an appreciation of the bigger picture of Lean Six Sigma and the supporting infrastructure necessary for a successful Lean Six Sigma effort including the leadership team, champions, black and green belts, project teams, subject matter experts and DMAIC project management. Introduction to Lean Six Sigma Training is a great way to kick off a lean six sigma process or to introduce new employees to concepts that are already in place in the organization.

What is Lean Six Sigma?

Lean Six Sigma represents a business philosophy leading to the elimination of waste and the reduction of variation. With Lean Six Sigma, costs are reduced, productivity is raised and customer satisfaction is enhanced. The effort starts with understanding “value” through the eyes of the customer. Anything that does not add value is waste. Any variation from the target or ideal state is a potential source of added cost. Lean Six Sigma efforts tackle both waste and variation with a focus on customers and their needs. Lean and Six Sigma are part of a continuum in which efficiency (Six Sigma) is coupled with effectiveness (Lean) to create a robust improvement environment.

  • Understand the scope and breadth of a Lean Six Sigma initiative.
  • Gain an understanding of what waste is and how to identify it so that it can be reduced.
  • Become aware of variation and techniques to reduce it.
  • Become familiar with the DMAIC team project model.
