Lean is a generic process management term referring to the identification and steady elimination of waste. It is closely linked with Six Sigma because of the methodology’s emphasis on reduction of process variation. Lean Sigma introduces the methods and tools used in both techniques.

The course allows participants to select between Lean or Six Sigma, for their own future development and/or as the most appropriate method for their company. Participants have the option of applying for either the Lean Sigma Practitioner, Yellow Belt Programme or the Lean Sigma Green Belt Certification Programme.
