Lean Six Sigma Certificates

Lean Six Sigma is a statistical approach and methodology to measuring and reducing variation to eliminate waste and improve performance. Lean Six Sigma not only reduces process defects and waste, but also provides a means for achieving a culture for continuous improvement. The approach is particularly relevant for those involved in optimising processes and resources relating to:

  • Defects
  • Over-Production
  • Waiting
  • Non-Utilized Talent
  • Transportation
  • Inventory
  • Motion
  • Extra-Processing
