Lean Six Sigma

Become a certified Six Sigma Green Belt or Black Belt professional.

Companies like Amazon, Motorola and General Electric have found success in implementing the Six Sigma DMAIC methodology, a global trend that gives businesses a leading edge over the competition. The five interconnected phases of DMAIC act as a map to improve and sustain new processes. They are: define the problem, measure data, analyze findings, improve processes, and control improvements. Learn to use this approach to eliminate errors and sustain quality improvements until processes at your organization are running at peak performance.

Upon successful completion of each program, participants receive a Six Sigma Green Belt or Black Belt certification from the Council for Six Sigma Certification.
