Lean training is composed of several different courses to streamline processes, reduce wasted resources and ensure the best possible results for your business. You'll find information on our Lean Management, Lean Six Sigma and Lean Six Sigma for Services courses below:

  • Lean: Focuses on efficiency through minimisation of waste errors and delays
  • Six Sigma: Focuses on quality and consistency, through improvement and variation reduction
  • Lean Six Sigma: Deliver customer value through efficient operations and quality standards
  • Lean Six Sigma for Services: Deliver customer value by addressing process problems and challenges that commonly occur in service and IT businesses

What is Lean?

Lean management is a business methodology that is specifically designed to improve your businesses quality and efficiency by eliminating wasted resources, such as time, money and effort. Its purpose is to produce only the best and most valuable services or products for customers at the right price.

Lean management methodologies provide businesses with the ability to continuously improve, while saving time, and as a result, money. Businesses that constantly improve can yield better customer satisfaction rates, which can lead to loyal repeat customers and referrals.

What is Six Sigma?

Six Sigma is a set of management techniques intended to improve business processes by greatly reducing the probability that an error or defects will occur.

Both Lean and Six Sigma systems have the same goal: they both seek to minimise waste and create the most efficient system possible. But they take different approaches to achieve this.

What is Lean Six Sigma?

Lean Six Sigma is a framework for continuous improvement and a problem-solving methodology. It's ideal for companies looking to streamline their processes and offer as much value to the customer as possible. It's the blending of two methodologies mentioned above: Lean and Six Sigma.

Lean Six Sigma originates from the manufacturing industry. It's all about the tools and techniques required to solve process problems and wants and is designed to improve by experiment. It can seamlessly integrate with best practices for project management, service management or product development to help organisations introduce and reinforce a culture of Continuous Improvement.

All our Lean Six Sigma certifications are accredited.

What is Lean Six Sigma for Services?

Lean Six Sigma for Services is a process improvement framework that helps support your change initiative across the different areas of your services operations.

You'll learn how to translate the theory into practice and deliver tangible business results. Examples of areas that Lean Six Sigma for Services can deliver improvements include customer support, project management, human resources, finance and operations.
