Many process improvement projects aim for modest improvements of 1-5%. Through this five-day course, you will learn how to achieve radical improvements of 10% or more through 3-6 month improvement projects. Improving Process Performance Using Six Sigma will also help you identify the real root causes of your business and product problems and teach you to develop solutions that prevent them from happening again.
The course provides an improvement framework to analyze data with the goal of making more informed business decisions. You will use a hands-on, problem solving approach to learn the necessary tools, methods, and practices without having to memorize statistics and statistical theory. Leveraging industry best practices such as Six Sigma and Goal-Driven Software Measurement, you will also learn how to balance project and process performance, quality, schedule, and cost.
Key concepts in data analysis including statistical thinking, the 7 Basic Tools, and root cause analysis are introduced through lectures and extensive practice sessions using real-life case studies and project data.
