What are you doing this long with an extra o weekend? Learn something new!
I think I am going to make Learn Something New a series and every time I find something new (free or affordable) I’ll share.
Lean Six Sigma (LSS) is a combination of 2 powerfully incredible methodologies to achieve better results through more efficient and effective processes. These methodologies are Lean and Six Sigma.
- What is Lean? Lean is a methodology that aims to create value by eliminating waste.
- What is Six Sigma? Six Sigma, another methodology, aims to reduce defects by effectively solving problems.
LSS adopts the Karate style of grading. White – Yellow – Green – Black – Master Black – these are all the belts available in LSS.
I am currently a Lean Six Sigma Yellow Belt (That’s like a Primary School Belt in Lean Six Sigma) and I function as a Green Belt, vigorously working on getting that Black Belt.
- Green Belt – Secondary School + Project Exposure
- Black Belt – B.Sc
- Master Black Belt – PhD
Why should you study LSS?
Are you interested in innovation? Process improvement? Or, generally doing more with less? Lean Six Sigma is perfect for you. I mean it is a major plus to your PMP, if you have one. A Project Manager that can minimise defects and eliminate waste within scope, cost and time? Yasssssss to you.
Vivian, it costs a ton of money to learn LSS, what kind of Alaroro are you sef?
I know, I know. Everything seems to be so costlaaayyy these days. That’s why I am here though. To find the free, the affordable and share them with you.
Are you new to process improvement? Are you an oldie who wants a quick refresher course? Are you a newbie who wants to get an overview of Lean Six Sigma with basic White Belt Training? I found a site that offers this for free: http://goleansixsigma.com/
It’s easy to understand and I want you to give it a try. After taking the free training, you can decide if you want to further your LSS learning!
Try it out and let me know how it goes.
Have a lovely long weekend!
