    Process improvement is a profession and a skill. To successfully improve processes with Lean Six Sigma various competencies are a must.

    • Lean Practitioner

    • Lean Leader

    • Lean Expert

    • Lean Six Sigma Green Belt

    • Lean Six Sigma Black Belt

    Lean Six Sigma in your company

    Although Lean Six Sigma is best known as a project-based improvement structure, it is much broader than that. Lean Six Sigma is an established philosophy, an organizational and improvement structure as well as a set of tools. Using this perspective Lean Six Sigma addresses organizational issues with respect to competitiveness, cost reduction, and customer satisfaction. 

    Depending on your ambition, Lean Six Sigma can be implemented in phases. Every organization is unique, without a common blueprint that universally applies. Together with you, The Lean Six Sigma Company will develop a plan of action tailored to your organization.
