Lean Six Sigma-Green/Black/Master Belt

Course Description

The Six Sigma methodology allows an organization to improve the quality of its processes by identifying causes of errors, working to minimize and correct future mistakes. From manufacturing processes, to logistics and retail—the Six Sigma process improvement methodology has worked to help numerous companies improve efficiencies, reduce costs and increase customer satisfaction.

The Six Sigma approach, however, is as applicable to IT as it is to any other business process. From network infrastructure to ERP to E-Business interfaces and software applications, the Six Sigma approach can be used by project managers as well as IT department managers to improve their service levels, reduce system downtime, and optimize their processes.
