Overview of Our Lean Learning Events
This workshop will define the many tools of lean and lean six sigma and place a perspective on how they should be used in the workplace. Too often, these tools are used in a random fashion without a plan. The result is selective gains in some areas of the operation, but the full benefit is not realized. This workshop draws from the many cases across many industries of lean and lean six sigma applications by the instructor. Bring your questions to the class and they will be addressed and resolved before you leave.
Many traditional performance metrics are obsolete in a lean enterprise, relying on flow technology, flexible and integrated systems, shared management, and information at the point of use. This seminar not only teaches you the science of developing lean metrics that deal with the cultural change in an organization, but you will learn how to ask the right questions, and determine what information and measures are needed to support the lean triad: supply chain, people/processes, and the customer.
This seminar explains the underlying reasons why humans make errors and how you can prevent these errors. As professionals, we have the opportunity to observe our work environment so human errors do not occur. We have the ability to create effective policies for managing human reliability, thus decreasing the risk of human error in our workplace. Research has shown that about 76% of workers` human errors occur in the groups that have not been introduced to human error reduction. More than 7,000 professionals have benefited from taking this seminar.
This program focuses on the basic strategies of business and personal negotiation. In the world of business, the ability to achieve your objectives is often dependent upon your ability to negotiate price, a contract, a deal, or a relationship. Sometimes, you may be required to negotiate with those whose position may be diminished by your success. What do you do? At other times, there may be a better deal for both parties—a common ground where both parties achieve their objectives.

This seminar will provide the tools to overcome the major issues associated with eliminating waste in the Service Value Stream. The "Customer Demand for Service to Cash" value stream will be used to show the improvements that can be achieved using the LeanService Method.
The Toyota Company and the Toyota Production System were founded and operate today from a total systems view of the organization. The total systems view creates the culture - the day to day way the people work, solve problems, create success and continuously sustain and improve their daily tasks. All the parts of the organization are interrelated. There are no silo work groups.
Do traditional project management practices apply in a LEAN Environment? This one-day, practical workshop is targeted toward developing LEAN or lean six sigma process improvement project leaders. Students will be asked to bring a “live” process improvement project and we will develop a clear project definition and get a great start on an actual project.
This interactive workshop extends the benefits of lean manufacturing outward from the factory floor to encompass the entire strategic supply chain, thereby enabling firms to trim waste from every step in the recurring value stream. Practical methods for identifying and eliminating wasted cost, unnecessary delays, and excess inventory are presented, along with recommendations for building an integrated supply chain through the use of Internet-based “e-management,” and strategies for exploiting B2B marketplaces and auction sites.
Since good negotiators are grown and not born, this workshop delves deeper into interactive cases to confirm and test the lessons learned, hone skills, practice tactics, test beliefs, and present the opportunity to negotiate with real people. Test intercultural negotiations, phone deals, concession plans, good guy/bad guy and other techniques to be aware of. After each exercise, there is a debriefing during which participants can assess their beliefs and results.
“Lean Machines” require less of everything to operate and maintain when compared to traditional machines- less time, less money, and fewer skilled experts. Lean Machines operate more efficiently and more effectively with the highest levels of reliability than traditional machines.
This workshop will go “beyond” the basic “fill in the boxes” of an A-3 and dive deeper into “A-3, or Plan-Do-Check-Act (PDCA) Thinking”. PDCA thinking is the core process to lean in regards to continuous improvement and change management.
Study of the structure, techniques, and application of project management including mathematical models, decision-making, styles of management, and communications.

Overview of Our Six Sigma Learning Events
This course is designed to provide a broad understanding of Lean Six Sigma improvement methodologies, concepts, and language. The course includes an overview of Lean Six Sigma concepts, required infrastructure, expected benefits, enterprise level metrics, the DMAIC method for achieving breakthroughs in performance, project selection, and project management.
The Yellow Belt class focuses on continuing the learner’s journey into Lean Six Sigma. During our time together we will follow the Define, Measure, Analyze, Improve, and Control or DMAIC Model approach to resolving variation problems. The role of the Yellow Belt team member will be reviewed through the model as it is the critical factor found in all Lean Six Sigma projects. We will dive deeper through exercises and examples of the key areas a Yellow Belt will function and perform.
The Green Belt class focuses on continuing the learner’s journey into Lean Six Sigma. During our time together we will follow the Define, Measure, Analyze, Improve, and Control or DMAIC Model approach to resolving variation problems. The role of the Green Belt team member will be reviewed through the model as it is the critical factor found in all Lean Six Sigma projects. We will dive deeper through exercises and examples of the key areas a Green Belt will function and perform. The course focuses on:
The Center’s Executive Champion Program is where the path begins. This 1-day program focuses on providing executive leadership the full breadth of the principles and benefits of Lean Six Sigma and to equip them with the ability to provide leadership, understanding, coaching and support for future short and long-term changes necessary to implement and sustain a quantified Lean/Lean Six Sigma culture.
The Center’s Black Belt Program is the final program that leads an individual to mastering Black Belt level Lean Six-Sigma Projects. This particular program is a two-part program comprising of seven (7) days of intense training integrated with the individual high-end Lean Six-Sigma identified project. This program continues the learning by focusing on studying the full applications of the DMAIC model and developing their advanced Lean Six-Sigma process skills. In addition our Master Black Belt Facilitator will provide the student practiced skills required to identify, evaluate, select and manage a Lean Six-Sigma project(s).
