Course Description

Lean Six Sigma Introduction

The PD Training Lean Six Sigma Introduction Training Course is designed for beginners where you can develop a deeper understanding of Lean Six Sigma and its implementation. The training course creates a solid foundation in Lean Six Sigma methodologies to help you gain expertise in these concepts.

Lean Six Sigma uses waste-reduction and process-improvement methodologies to increase end value for customers and save resources in the process of achieving these goals. It improves processes by identifying, analysing, measuring and controlling areas of waste with the aim to improve processes, reduce costs and enhance value for customers.

This is a practical class that is suitable for all audiences and provides people with the tools that they can apply on-the-job (and in other contexts) the very next day.

This is an instructor-led class that you can attend from home or your office.

We use secure Video Conferencing with interactive features such as live polling, screen sharing, whiteboards, live chat and breakout sessions. Please discuss your preferred platform, most commonly we use Microsoft Teams, Skype for Business, Webex or Zoom upon request. 

These courses are facilitated in English, and are open to people from different industries in all countries especially across Australia, New Zealand, Singapore, Malaysia, Hong Kong and Papua New Guinea - this is a short but powerful learning experience that gives you global collaboration opportunities.
