The first step in the lean six sigma learning journey, Lean Six Sigma Foundations introduces participants to the concept of organisational and process improvement and the role that the lean six sigma methodology and its practitioners play in this. Companies equipped with lean six sigma methodologies pursue excellence, consistency, customer responsiveness, speed and lower cost.
By exploring its historical origins and through de-bunking misconceptions about the methodology, participants will begin to understand where and how lean six sigma can be applied in order to achieve measurable improvements within organisations.
The remainder of the course has participants test and reflect on their understanding of these core theoretical principles by having participants apply their learning to a highly interactive, hypothetical improvement activity throughout the day. By approaching the hypothetical improvement activity in small groups, participants are introduced and prompted to practice those skills required to conduct and manage actual improvement programs in the workplace.
