About Lean Six Sigma

Lean Six Sigma is a methodology for business process improvement which combines two established business improvement philosophies: Lean Manufacturing and Six Sigma. Lean is a system for removing waste from the manufacturing process and ensuring the delivery of maximum value to the customer. Six Sigma focuses on process improvement by managing quality and reducing defects. Combining these two methods means businesses get the best of both worlds: the speed of Lean with the quality of Six Sigma.

Happy Customers

I personally found the trainer’s style and delivery both motivating and engaging. I also enjoyed that the trainer was willing to share with the group their significant knowledge and experience to bring to life the theories and explain them on a practical level. I found this incredibly inspirational. I hope to do additional courses with the Knowledge Academy and will be seeking to progress with more training in 2012.
