Lean Six Sigma Training Program
Introducing Vincent Mirabelli CBAP PMP who has joined the Bob the BA team to lead our new Lean Six Sigma Program. We're excited to have Vincent onboard for our exciting new approach to modern collaborative approaches for Lean Six Sigma and the Business Analyst.
There is one thing that is common to all businesses, sectors, and industries; decisions. This is a vital part of how we operate, strategize, and grow. However, those decisions, and the results that follow, are often based solely on intuition and/or experience; based largely on feeling. With Lean Six Sigma, we aim to remove the personal and political element inherent in business, by quantifying your pain points, and using tools that are central to the methodology, provide a means of determining your probabilities of success. That’s not to say that intuition and feeling are a bad thing. We don’t want to eliminate this “tribal knowledge” from the discussion. Instead, we are going to use this as a jumping off point, after which we will use data to guide the process, using these probabilities as a means of quantifiable validation, which will inform all of our decisions.
The ultimate goal is to get your company’s systems, products and processes as close to perfection as possible, with a high level of quality, balanced with minimal process variation.
What is Lean Six Sigma?
Lean Six Sigma is a structured, data driven methodology that can be applied to any aspect of business; to improve customer satisfaction, to eliminate waste and to increase profit and productivity. Central to this is the idea that, where work is being done, waste is being generated. It would stand to reason then, that the more waste, the greater the chance of providing a poor or inconsistent customer experience, have longer cycle and lead times, and increased likelihood of quality issues, such as defect. All of this translates into one thing - profit loss.
Through classroom instruction, and available in-house support and deployment of the Six Sigma tools throughout your business, your Belt candidates will learn how to identify and quantify problems, then turning those problems into a solution, all guided by logic and data.
Our Lean Six Sigma Product
It’s actually quite simple…Lean Six Sigma will help you be better.
By introducing a new way of thinking and practically solving problems into your business, we are able to start breaking down barriers in your company’s culture, to move to an improved way of doing business. All our students are trained, and encouraged, to think with data “outside-the-box”, eliminating “I think” and “I feel” from their problem-solving vocabulary.
Practical Lean Six Sigma thinking and methods are transferred into the heart of what drives your business; your people. Our aim is not to do the work for you, but rather, teach you how to solve problems yourselves. Our approach is to empower your employees with the tools they need to be successful. And their success means your businesses success.
