Six Sigma; The Truly Great Never Die
So, what exactly is Six Sigma Training? Well, it was originally developed by Motorola in 1986 and since has been widely used across the business industry. The primary aim of Six Sigma training is to improve the qualities of the process outputs by identifying and removing any errors which have occurred. It also helps to minimise any variability in the manufacturing process of a product.
But why have you never heard of it when it has been around for so long? Well in short, many large companies have only just adopted it because they realised just how well the smaller organisations were benefiting from it.
Although the Six Sigma Certification was originally aimed at small, private organisations, due to its success rate and flexibility it is not employed by governments and small organisations. Since Six Sigma was first introduced it has gone from strength to strength as many organisations across the globe have adopted its methods and have gained a great profit and success within their company.
Lean Six Sigma Training prides itself in assuring a quality product; whether it is services or products which are created.
How? Well it identifies and measures any errors or defects and creates a bullet proof plan to ensure those errors steer clear. Thus the end result is quality services for customers and a product which meets the desired requirements…therefore a nice big profit for the company.
I bet you have heard a great deal about “belts” in Six Sigma? Well I will now explain exactly how the different belts work within this training course. The yellow belt is the “beginners” belt if you like, and the first one you will achieve. Once you have gained the yellow belt in this training scheme you will be responsible for carrying out all strategies which are devised by Six Sigma and find ways to implement them in the real working environment. Next is the Six Sigma green belt, which is the next level up. Once you have accomplished the green belt you will be responsible for the bulk of the Six Sigma work which occurs throughout the company. The Six Sigma black belt is a leadership position which allows you to take charge of projects which will be taking place. The highest achievement in Six Sigma is the Master Black Belt which holds the largest amount of responsibilities, thus you will be the project manager and supervisor of the entire project/operation.
Whilst the Lean Six Sigma Certification is hard work and does need a lot of dedication, the best thing is it gives you the opportunity to use what you have learnt straight away! Not only that but 70% of individuals who have completed the Six Sigma training have been promoted to positions such as managers and team leaders.
So, if you are looking for your next career move then get yourself enrolled in a Six Sigma Training course! Trust me; it’s the next big thing in the business world.
