- Q3edge designed LEAN Six Sigma Program does not focus around “statistics”. Our program ensures that every participant becomes a business analyst to identify, evaluate and optimize business problems.
- Our LEAN Six Sigma program includes technical plus soft behavioral aspects too. We believe a right technical solution holds no good unless right mindset is available too.
Hence, our program includes Critical Thinking and Process Innovation tools as part of LEAN Six Sigma. This makes us completely different and unique from the industry
- It is not just a class room session with concept learning, each participant gets a real business problem with relevant data. At the end of the session, every participant walks
out with the implementation of end to end business problem with hands-on on experience of Lean Six Sigma methodology
Session 1: An overview Session for Six Sigma
Learn about the basics of Six Sigma, it’s evaluation, industry need. This is a foundation session that explains the
purpose of this skill, why this skill identified as an essential “need “ for the industry, how did organization get
benefited with the right use of this skill, list of challenges and best practices adopted by the organizations.
1. Team Welcome, Introduction and Expectation Setting
2. An Introduction to Six Sigma, history and best practices
3. An understanding of Six Sigma Methodology: Define, Measure, Analyze, Improve, and Control
Session 3: Measure Phase
“How big is the problem” is the question which is evaluated using this tools, techniques of this phase. In Measure
phase, we learn about how to measure the capability of a process. In addition, before measuring the capability of
any process, measure the quality of the measurement system. At the end of this session, you will be able to learn
two capabilities : Measure the Capability of the Measurement System, Measure the Process Capability
1. Data Collection : Sample and Population
2. Statistics Based on Data “Type”
3. Measurement System Analysis
4. Process Capability and Defect Per Million Opportunity (DPMO)
Session 5: Improve Phase
In this phase, we learn about Innovating Techniques to identify the potential best solutions. Also, we learn about
how a solution should be planned to execute and validate using the Pilot Phase.
1. Process Innovation for Best Solution Identification and Selection
2. Pilot Project Approach
3. Pilot Solution Validation
4. Control Chart Monitoring and Analysis
Session 2: Six Sigma : Define Phase
Define is the first phase of Six Sigma. Not every problem holds the same value and priority for resolution. Define
phase helps to identify, select and prioritize the business problem. It helps to break down the big problem into
small resolvable problems. At the end of this session, you will learn which problem should be addressed, with
whom and how. Sometimes, an effective execution of define phase provides the sustainable solution to the
problem before getting into more detail.
1. Problem Selection, Evaluation using Project Tree and Critical to Quality
2. Set Scope, Team and Targets using Business Charter
3. Explore Business Process Maps to Find Quick Wins
Session 4: Six Sigma : Analyze Phase
Problems are the symptoms which are visible and experienced by the business users. In this phase, we learn to
find the potential root causes and validate potential root causes using Hypothesis Testing methods to confirm the
“real” root cause.
1. Learn about Hypothesis Tests
2. 7QC Basic Statistics Tools
Session 6: Six Sigma : Control Phase
Change Management is the essential part of the right solution implementation. Even the best solutions fail in the
real world if the change is not managed effectively. In this phase, we will learn about the change management
approach with the right communication method to ensure that solution is accepted, implemented and sustained
in the real world.
1. Change Management Approach and Best Practices
2. Sustain through Control Charts, SOP and Poka Yoka
Time: 4:00 PM – 5:00 PM
