The Lean Six Sigma methodology is a systemic approach that can be applied in service-based, transactional, production-based, and healthcare environments; and is focused on achieving significant business results (earnings) and increasing customer satisfaction.
The Lean Six Sigma Black Belt training program we provide is a way for individuals with no prior experience to become a Black Belt. The course requires 120 hours of training. The participants will get the knowledge, the skills, and the experience to lead project teams to achieve breakthrough business improvements for their organizations.
This course provides a positive Return on Investment (ROI).
