What is Lean Six Sigma?

Lean Six Sigma Green Belt CertificationLean Six Sigma is a management methodology applied by businesses to improve products and processes, and ultimately achieve operational excellence. It is accomplished by maximizing efficiency and through change, all the while incorporating the voice of the customer. “Lean” focuses on the reduction of waste, whereas “Six Sigma” focuses on consistency and the limitation of even small variations. We live in a world where things change rapidly, new products come to market quickly, profit margins can be very low, there is no margin for error, and continuous improvement is the norm. Consumers and clients expect near-perfect quality and demand that it be delivered instantaneously and at a very reasonable cost.

Student Testimonials

I wish to express my most sincere appreciation for Prof. Singh’s investment in me. My initial thought was to increase my marketability ...but you have introduced me to an entirely new worldview; with the concomitant responsibilities to share. My suspicion is acquiring the certification is the easy portion of this journey ...being worthy of the certification, I think, will be the more difficult and enduring pursuit. I will deploy the best of me ... to generate good returns on the investment, of your reputation, in me. Thank you and be well Professor; until next time. To the rest of the team ... I wish you all great success and clarity of purpose.”
Professor Gurpreet Singh is uniquely qualified to lead this course. He has a wonderful disposition to interact with all class members regardless of their background on the subject matter. He treats all with respect and truly values everyone’s input and contribution. He lives LSS each and every day in everything he does and that comes through in the classroom. I learned so much and I can honestly say I will put this to use in everything I do. “LSS is a way of thinking.” Any alum who is serious about continuing to learn and adding skill sets to their repertoire will want to make sure they enroll in Professor Singh’s LSS class.”
Knowing the material is just the tip of the iceberg. The hidden treasure is a key our Professor Gurpreet left us to unlock many possibilities and journeys to strive for stellar performance on the LSS stage years to come.
