Interested in learning Lean and Six Sigma in bite-size, 3-hour sessions?
These classes will give you a solid understanding of Lean and Six Sigma concepts, which are the most popular and effective approaches to implementing process improvements within an organization.
Lean concepts developed out of Henry Ford, and made it’s way to Japan after World War II. Toyota and other Japanese manufacturers took these techniques and mastered them. The Toyota Production System became known as “Lean Manufacturing,” but it applies beyond the factory.
Six Sigma concepts were developed from Western Electric and Bell Labs, and evolved from many quality techniques, including quality circles and total quality management. Motorola developed the Six Sigma framework modeled after the martial arts belt system, and General Electric (GE) took it to another level.
Lean and Six Sigma can be applied in your home, and in most industries such as: healthcare, software, TV/film, government agencies, nonprofits, banking, entrepreneurship, and more!
BPI has continued to move Lean and Six Sigma to the next level, by helping businesses and organizations apply these approaches to sustainability, which is the balance of people, planet and profits.
