Our highly sought-after Lean Six Sigma training and Nationally Accredited Qualifications assist by elevating employees to become leaders and improvement contributors within the business. Lean is a proven methodology and tool kit used to eliminate waste by reducing process time and increasing flow. Six Sigma is a methodology and tool kit used to improve process capability by reducing process variation. Together Lean Six Sigma is a powerful tool which can be used to differentiate your business from a competitor within your industry sector. Its purpose is to reduce process waste and variation and in doing so, it creates a chain reaction of improvements to staff morale, product and service performance, customer satisfaction and ultimately to profits and shareholder returns.

These programs are organised into a ‘belt system,’ to define the level of understanding including: Six Sigma Yellow Belt, Six Sigma Green Belt, Six Sigma Black Belt, Six Sigma Master Black Belt.
