How does Lean training benefit individuals and companies?

The field of Operations Excellence is in high demand by employers. When looking for jobs in the industry, a key skill to help your resume stand out is Lean Six Sigma training and certification. Lean Six Sigma is a set of strategies, techniques, and tools for process improvement and reducing manufacturing defects. Certification proves to employers that you have learned and can apply the tools and techniques of Lean and Six Sigma. Both you and your organization will benefit from higher productivity, efficiency, and quality in all aspects of business operations.
Where is Lean Six Sigma Applicable?

If your organization has external/internal customers or suppliers, opportunities exist to apply Lean Six Sigma. Companies implement Lean Six Sigma through the following 5 processes:
The improvement team defines the issues that were getting in the way of satisfying customer requirements.
Measurements are used to establish a baseline of the current state of performance.
Analysis is conducted on the measurement information to isolate the root causes of the issues.
Creative solutions are then developed to improve performance beyond the current state.
To assure the issues resolved remained resolved, controls are implemented.
The preceding example illustrated the Lean Six Sigma process of Define, Measure, Analyze, Improve, and Control.
The following are examples of how Lean Six Sigma can help in numerous industries:

Strategic Management

We are very proud to deliver the only short course on strategic management available in Ireland. This course has been designed to be delivered in house and is specifically tailored for the Irish multi national IDA high value manufacturing and services sector. The programme is delivered over 20 hours as an integrated format over modules decided by the client. Strategy only works when everyone is on the same page and for this reason we offer this programme for each management forum to take advantage of this unique opportunity. It is fundamental knowledge that companies that have a strong foundation and understanding of strategy and how it shapes future sustainable success are the business units that achieve prolonged success within the greater company structure. Simply put, the business unit that talks the language of the CEO attracts the greatest interest and capital input. Success is always built on strategy. See a sample of our strategic training work.
