Kenco’s Lean Six Sigma Training prepares participants to implement the basics of the Define, Measure, Analyze, Improve and Control (DMAIC) methodology. The proven, powerful techniques and the tools of Lean Six Sigma are incorporated into our customer’s business practices, helping them to achieve better, faster, and lower cost products and services.
The Lean Six Sigma courses utilizes a knowledge-based approach, leveraging in-class examples, simulations, and hands-on exercises which give participants a practical, relevant knowledge of the methodology’s tools and techniques.
Ideal for leadership or individuals overseeing Black Belt or Green Belt projects, the Lean Six Sigma Championship training class takes place over two days at Kenco’s corporate offices in Chattanooga, TN. Full session attendance is required to receive credit.
This training class helps participants incorporate and solidify the core concepts of Operational Excellence.
Participants are expected to bring a project to work on, so they can immediately apply their knowledge and realize a return on investment on an issue specific to their business. See below for project requirements.
Kenco’s Lean Six Sigma training uses the “Present/Practice/Apply/Review” strategy, utilizing tools and methods to give participants the opportunity to practice them in class, and apply each to their project before reviewing the results.
