Topic Description

The Application Projects topic will provide the participant with the experience-based knowledge and leadership insights necessary to reap the many benefits associated with a Six Sigma application project. Specifically, the participant will learn how to select, scope, define, plan, initiate, execute, validate, report, and close a results-oriented project that is designed to produce tangible financial benefits. Of interest, this topic will focus on the driving and restraining forces that govern the speed of execution and resultant quality of a Black Belt, Green Belt, Yellow Belt or White Belt application project.

Reinforcement of major concepts, techniques, and application is realized through exercises, scenarios, and case studies. By way of this training, the participant will gain tremendous insight into the logic and reasoning which underlies Six Sigma and the process of breakthrough improvement. Total instructional time for this topic is 3 hours and 24 minutes.
