About this course:

For decades, the Lean and Six Sigma methodologies have been helping organizations meet and exceed customer requirements while becoming more efficient and profitable. Lean and Six Sigma help organizations develop and deliver near-perfect products and services. Lean is a term developed by Toyota that focuses on the relentless pursuit of removing waste from business practices. The term "Sigma" is a statistical term that measures how far a given process deviates from perfection. The central idea behind Six Sigma is that if you can measure how many defects you have in a process, you can systematically determine how to eliminate them, getting as close to "zero defects" as possible. This course demonstrates advanced Lean and Six Sigma tools and techniques. Students learn to document enterprise-level processes, identify the steps necessary to implement a Lean Six Sigma system, as well as learn how to teach and mentor in the workplace.
