Lean develops the speed and efficiency of a process, along with the removal of any non-essential activities, while Six Sigma focuses on effectiveness and the removal of errors.

    • Tools & Techniques: Understanding how the methods of analysing data and existing processes apply to any organisation, no matter the industry or sector.
    • Process & Methodology: From process mapping to the application of Six Sigma methodology, certification proves your ability at putting your training into practice.
    • Mindset & Culture: A way of thinking that focuses on using data and processes to drive continuous improvement and meet empirical performance goals.
