Training That Pays

Do the benefits of Six Sigma outweigh the training costs?

The savings as a percentage of revenue vary from 1.2 to 4.5 percent. For a $30 million a year company, that can translate into between $360,000 and $1,350,000 in bottom-line-impacting savings per year.1 How much could your business save each year?

Using Six Sigma can affect many different aspects of your business2, including customer satisfaction and employee loyalty.

Agility, Innovation, Efficiency . . . this is what every company needs in their manufacturing and administrative processes. Our Lean Six Sigma Yellow Belt Course has been designed to focus on results not just theory. The learning objectives emphasize interaction with the tools, a hands-on approach that goes beyond awareness and lectures.

Upon completion of the course, participants will be certified as a Six Sigma Yellow Belt, and also have:

  1. Created a well-chartered Lean Process Improvement Project, setting you up for immediate success
  2. Gained actual experience using Lean Six Sigma tools on your own work process
  3. Received individual coaching to maximize improvement project results
  4. Completed a peer review and benchmarking for continuous improvement

Learn from a Lean Six Sigma Master Black Belt

The curriculum and agenda are based on the 25 years' experience of our trainer, Steve Wall. Steve is passionate about applying Six Sigma and Lean to solve problems in every industry. Steve served on the cabinets of two Ohio Governors and was appointed to lead state-wide Lean Six Sigma programs across governmental departments. This work motivated him to found Lean Ohio, which continues the effort to spread Lean culture in Ohio’s government today. Steve has taught Lean Six Sigma concepts at a variety of universities such as the Ohio State University, Michigan State, University of California Berkley, Baldwin Wallace, and George Mason.

The Yellow Belt Plus training will be followed up with three monthly roundtables led by Manufacturing Works’ personnel. Implementing Lean projects and driving change in an organization can be a journey and the monthly meetings will be the continuous support you need to ensure your improvement project achieves results.
