This programme imparts a thorough in-depth knowledge & understanding of all aspects of Lean and Six Sigma Black Belts have the ability to lead LSS projects and also provide expert guidance to other staff members in their LSS project work.

By integrating elements of Lean and Six Sigma organisations can successfully realise the full potential of both strategies. LSS enhances team problem solving with the use of statistical tools. It is a customer focussed, data driven approach to optimise products, processes and services. LSS is a proven pathway for enterprise-wide productivity improvement.
