Participants will earn a white belt and learn how to apply the five-step methodology of Six Sigma in product, process or service industries. Other topics include team dynamics in Lean Six Sigma projects, tenets of effective project charters, valid measuring systems, improvement methodologies and designs, and sustainability of improvements.
