Six Sigma seeks to improve the quality of process outputs by identifying and removing the causes of defects (errors) in manufacturing and business processes using a set of quality management methods. It creates a special infrastructure of people within the organization (“Black Belts”, “Green Belts”, etc.) who are experts in these methods. Each Six Sigma project follows a defined sequence of steps and has quantified financial targets. In recent years practitioners have combined Six Sigma methods with lean manufacturing to yield a methodology named Lean Six Sigma.
Lean Six Sigma Champions are typically responsible for Project Selection, Team assignments and progress tracking. This course prepares the candidate to fulfill that role. Champions are key players in the success of any Lean Six Sigma deployment. They are the front line to selecting and guiding your Lean Six Sigma trained personnel.
A Champion also generates project ideas, prioritizes them, assigns them to Belts and tracks them to successful completion. Our Lean Six Sigma Champion course provides everything you need to know in order to perform the function of a Lean Six Sigma Champion to the highest standards.
