What is Lean Six Sigma?

Lean Six Sigma is a proven methodology aimed at improving productivity, increasing customer satisfaction and reducing operational costs.

Our Lean Six Sigma courses are delivered by The Lean Six Sigma Company, whose course content has been certified for the ISO 18404 and ISO 13053 standards. This means that the knowledge, skills, and competences taught during our courses are entirely in line with the international standards of Lean Six Sigma, as described by the ISO.

We will support you in your ambition to continuously improve processes. Our focus is on the practical application of Lean Six Sigma. We adhere to internationally recognised Lean and Lean Six Sigma philosophies and methods. The ideas and methods covered in the courses are applicable to almost every form of business activity. Qualifications in Lean Six Sigma are increasingly required for (management) positions not directly involved in Continuous Improvement. A wide range of businesses and organisations can apply the skills developed e.g:

  • Manufacturing
  • Logistics
  • Healthcare
  • Finance
  • Education
  • Packaging
  • Government
  • Education
  • Third sector

Available Courses

The courses can be studied in a modular format enabling you to spread the training over a number of months.

To help you achieve incredible results as soon as possible, leading a Lean Six Sigma project is a key component of your programme. This way, you learn to apply your theoretical knowledge in real-life situations. During the course, participants learn how to select projects with the highest impact and lowest effort involved, so every new initiative adds maximum value. Once your project starts, you will receive personal coaching from your Master Black Belt with experience in your field thus helping you take the first steps towards becoming a Lean Six Sigma professional.
