Practical Process Improvement using Lean and Six Sigma

There are many different approaches that organisations can use for process improvement and among the most commonly used and Lean and Six Sigma.  They both focus on identifying customers’ requirements and ensuring business processes can meet those requirements in the most value-adding way.  While the biggest benefits might be achieved by adopting Lean or Six Sigma organisation-wide, there are plenty of opportunities to apply the principles and tools at a more local, tactical level.

Line managers and internal consultants who want to understand how to improve and manage business processes to reduce waste, improve effectiveness and reduce cycle-time should book a place on this one-day practical workshop, facilitated by Ian Seath, which covers the following topics:

  • How Lean and 6-Sigma differ, yet are complementary approaches for process improvement
 
  • How to set-up and define a process improvement project
 
  • How to use appropriate tools to map, measure and analyse business processes
 
  • How to design a Lean, value-adding process
 
  • How to engage key stakeholders and staff to ensure effective management of process change
 

A case study is used to provide attendees with the opportunity to work through an end-to-end process improvement project.

Last year’s course achieved an average delegate feedback score of 9.38 out of 10.  If you want to cut through the jargon of Lean and Six Sigma and learn some practical tools, this is the workshop for you.

Practical Process Improvement using Lean and Six Sigma is running at the OR Society’s offices in Birmingham on November 5th 2012.  Booking details here.
