Lean Sigma is a very successful methodology for Productivity and Continuous Improvement. It uses a structured approach known as DMAIC (Define, Measure, Analyse, Improve and Control) to eliminate business process waste, reduce variation and improve efficiency. It is being successfully deployed across many sectors and in companies of all sizes in the pharmaceutical, healthcare, medical device, financial and service sectors. This course provides a structured approach to solving problems and putting a sustaining mechanism in place to ensure problems do not re-occur.

Testimonial


Fergal O'Connor, 2011 attendee: "I applied for a place on the Certificate in Lean Six-Sigma Green belt through the Springboard programme. My background is in the multi-national pharmaceutical sector, and I was interested in this course, as I knew from my experience, that courses like this are very well received with-in the industry. I found the course content, relevant, practical and up to date. The tutors were very professional, helpful, enthusiastic, and accommodating to students like myself, who were out of the classroom for a long time. An interesting aspect for me was that many of my classmates were from different employment sectors, and they also found the course very beneficial. I found this course a huge confidence booster and hugely beneficial to my career progression."
