Event description


Six Sigma Lean Green Belt

Instructor is Jon Padfield, PhD: https://www.linkedin.com/in/jonpadfield/

Certification backed by IUPUC, Indiana University Purdue University Columbus, Center for Business and Economic Development.

This is an all virtua 9 week boot camp. Certified by Indiana University. Tuesday evenings from 6pm-9pm.

What is Lean Six Sigma? Simply put, it is a skill set that consists of a comprehensive set of tools and a specific way of using them to reduce waste, improve productivity, reduce errors, and increase profit. In other words, it is a highly valued set of skills that many employers look for when hiring new employees or considering existing employees for promotion.

"Lean" is all about reducing waste and creating "flow". Six Sigma is all about reducing variation which in turn reduces defects. These complimentary methodologies form a powerful tool set for optimizing manufacturing and business processes across any organization.

This Green Belt course is intended to develop participants into leaders of small to medium size projects that often only involve a single area or department. Green Belts typically lead projects in their own area or department where they are a subject matter expert.
