Do it Better with Lean Six Sigma: How to Improve Business Processes. Get a White Belt to Boot!

February 13, 2019 @ 7:30 am - 11:00 am

| TIGER Workshop

8000 Walton Parkway Suite 200
New Albany, OH 43054 United States

NOTE: Early start time of 8:30am. Workshop session will start promptly at 9:00am.

Have you heard of the Toyota production system? Have you heard about companies using professionals who’ve earned “belts” to improve processes? Learn how using the Lean Six Sigma methodology can:

• streamline processes and reduce non-value-added activities
• improve quality and reduce cost
• improve customer satisfaction
• reduce waste and rework
• identify the real cause of problems
• enable you to know when you have REALLY made an improvement

Attend this workshop and learn the toolset that companies use to perform at a higher level (Six Sigma), better meet their customers’ needs, and strive to pursue perfection.
