This 60-minute introduction to the Oxford Lean Six Sigma / Continuous Improvement Programme will explain how it can be used to improve your business processes, smooth your service delivery and increase the effectiveness and efficiency of your organisation.
The tutorial is both a ‘taster session’ for our Lean Six Sigma Leadership Yellow Belt, Green Belt and Black Belt courses, and a useful ‘starter pack’ for people new to the ideas and method of Lean Six Sigma / Continuous Improvement.
Presented from a ‘jargon-busting’ and practical standpoint by experienced practitioners, you will have a better understanding of:
- Whether Lean Six Sigma is right for you and your organisation
- What is involved in becoming a Lean Six Sigma practitioner
- What is involved in introducing Lean Six Sigma into an organisation
Further information about this course can be found on The Process Improvement Blog.
