Organizations, both public and private, need to work faster, reduce costs, and maintain high standards of consistency and quality. They can achieve these goals through improvement programs such as Lean and Six Sigma. The Lean process emphasizes waste reduction and improved processing speed, and Six Sigma stresses an analytical approach to the elimination of defects and the reduction of variation. When combined, they can solve organizational problems and improve performance, leading to a competitive edge. This five-day program prepares new Green Belts to lead projects and contribute to improving services and manufacturing. Those who pass the exam on the final day will receive Green Belt certification from the University of Kansas.
