About this Course

Lean Six Sigma is at its most effective as a Management System and philosophy that permeates all aspects of an organisation. It is much more than a set of metric-based problem solving and process improvement tools. Executives and Lean Six Sigma project Champions play a critical role in establishing and maintaining a Lean Six Sigma Management System to ensure delivery of sustainable breakthrough results.

Executives and Champions need to understand the key concepts and methods of Lean Six Sigma. Equally importantly they need to understand their critical role in aligning, mobilising and managing all elements of the organisation to implement a LeanSix Sigma Management System. It is when LeanSix Sigma is implemented as a Management System that organisations see the greatest impact.

Target Audience

Executives and senior managers whose organisation are either considering implementing Lean Six Sigma and they want to know more, or implementation has started and they want to better understand their role as Leaders and Six Sigma Project Champions.
