So you can continue improving independently after the program.

    1. Goals

    Who are your stakeholders and what are their stakes? Define the current problem, the process in scope and the goals to achieve.

    2. Process

    What does your current process look like? Reduce the waste and define “rules” on how to execute the work. Apply visual management to support those rules.

    3. Metrics

    What is your true performance and what is the hidden potential? Develop metrics that provide new insights and enable you to control your process execution pro-actively.

    4. Operating System

    How to control and improve your process performance? Set up a structured set of valuable meetings for all involved. Enabling you to adjust direction and providing opportunities to improve.

    5. Improve

    Do you know how to improve effectively and realise the given opportunities? A standardised approach of Kaizens and root-cause-analysis will help you to turn ideas into action.

    6. Embed

    How to make sure that this program is not a one-off improvement? We will perform a “stress-test” on your ability to continue learning and improving independently.

    Online

    More important than ever before! All our programs are developed in such a way that these can be done either fully online or as a combination of online and face-to-face.

    trainings

    Additional to the program we also offer 3 different trainings to develop your people in the Lean Six Sigma principles. This proven methodology contains a practical toolset to continuously improve you performances.

    1D Basics

    This 1-day training is specifically useful for your people involved in process execution. In this training the participants learn the basic principles of Lean Six Sigma. At the end they are able to identify and eliminate waste and to create flow in the process. They understand the purpose of the operating system and are aware of the improvement methods like Kaizen, RCA and PDCA. After successful completion of a short exam at the end of the day they get the “Yellow Belt” certificate.

    2D Essentials

    This 2-day essentials training contains all elements of the 1-day basics training. The operating system and improvement methods are discussed more in depth, so after the training the participants are capable of setting this up and applying it themselves. Therefore this training is mainly useful for those employees managing and improving processes, like team leads and supervisors. Participants of this training will receive the “Orange Belt” certificate after successful completion of their exam.

    3D Expert

    As an addition to the 2-day training, we also offer an expert training for your employees that have a role as performance improvement expert. These 3 days will focus on the DMAIC methodology about how to manage an improvement project. This training contains statistical elements as well as change management principles. At the end there will be an exam to receive the “Green Belt” certificate.

    Management Awareness

    If you want to adopt a new methodology for your organisations, it is important for management to know what this methodology is about. And for a methodoly to be successful, the role of management is critical. In this management awareness training we discuss both the content of Lean Six Sigma and the role of management to maximise benefits.
