About the program:

Lean/Six Sigma has become the standard of measure for world-class quality. Companies are using Lean/Six Sigma for success that is measured in bottom-line results. Designed for office, manufacturing, distribution, service, educational and healthcare industries.

The two pillars of Lean are continuous improvement and respecting employees. The focus of Lean is the identification and elimination of waste. Waste is described by non-value added activities. You will be taught ways to hear and respect the people you employ while fixing processes that may not be as efficient as they could be.
