Lean Six Sigma Programs

Vative Public and Onsite Lean Six Sigma Programs:

At Vative we have combined the advantages of Lean and Six Sigma to offer three key programs to develop your knowledge and skill to excel your own as well as your organisations CI journey.

The most common overlapping principle of Lean and Six Sigma is the holistic continuous improvement mindset. The Lean and Six Sigma streams also require the fundamental skill of identifying the customer (internal and external) and to recognise that any process that does not add value to the customer is considered waste.

An advantage to Lean is its ease and speed in implementation with Six Sigma brings its extremely robust conclusions due to its use of statistical methods to analyse real data.

Vative’s Lean Six Sigma program material and certification standards were developed with the help of Motorola University.

Vative offer the following public as well as onsite Lean Six Sigma programs:

  • Lean Six Sigma Yellow Belt Program – A 1-day introduction to some of the fundamental Lean Six Sigma methodology with participants intended to participate in improvement projects.
