Between facilitated sessions, students are to read chapters from the book(s)/articles, watch videos, and answer questions that are to be addressed during the facilitated session. The only cost for the training is the price of the training book(s) for each student.

Why this Free Lean Six Sigma Training Materials?

When times get tough often one of the first things to go is an organization′s lean Six Sigma deployment function (and people associated with it).  Why is this?  When things are not going well, it would seem that process improvement efforts should be a high priority for increased focus in a business.  However, apparently the reason for a Lean Six Sigma functional downsizing is that leadership is not seeing the value of currently reported lean Six Sigma functional accomplishments.

This book-linked lean Six Sigma 2.0 Black Belt training offering addresses this issue.

In addition to providing a detailed lean and Six Sigma tool integration road map, this teaching material shows how to:

  1. Structurally integrate lean Six Sigma improvement efforts within the organization′s overall business management system so that everyone sees the value of making big-picture-value improvements.
  2. Link process improvement efforts to key performance indicator (KPI) improvement needs so that the big picture benefits.
  3. Demonstrate pictorially and quantitative process improvement accomplishments from a process-performance-output point-of-view (in an easy to understand statement).
