Course description

Lean Six Sigma Yellow Belt

Lean Six Sigma (LSS) uses data to identify and eliminate waste within processes. More than a set of tools, Lean Six Sigma is a systematic approach to improve the way products and services are developed, produced, delivered, and consumed. It is a proven process that improves performance and profits based on critical thinking, data identification, and guided analysis.
