Every organization strives to satisfy – and preferably exceed – customer needs, all while performing at maximum efficiency and operating at the lowest possible costs. The Lean Six Sigma methodology is a data-driven and proven methodology that enables organizations to achieve these goals. It does so through a structured approach of identifying and measuring the problem, eliminating root-causes and wasteful activities, and implementing effective solutions, which in turns lead to faster lead-times, reduced defects and minimizing of variation in processes. This approach in turn, is divided in daily initiatives and project-based initiatives, each of which contain specific methods, tools and techniques. Examples of these are the DMAIC project method, stand-ups, kaizen events and value stream mapping.

Achieving Performance Excellence is not a goal that must be achieved only once but is a cyclical process of continuous improvement. After all, we live in an age of exponential change, wherein the threat of stagnation is ever-present and the road to success is forged through constant innovation.

To avoid stagnation and pave our way towards the future, we have to identify the improvement potential in our processes on a daily basis. Organizations need to constantly strive for perfection in the way we work. This is the mindset of continuous improvement that is central to both the Baldrige Excellence Framework and the Lean Six Sigma methodology.


What sets Lean Six Sigma apart from comparable methodologies is its exceptionally broad applicability. Essentially, it can be used to improve any process that can be repeated. As such, it isn’t limited to manufacturing, but can also be applied to virtually any process within the service industry as well. Whether it is improving the speed and efficiency of an assembly line process or the providing of customer service, Lean Six Sigma can be applied to make an improvement.

While Lean Six Sigma offers tried-and-true techniques and project methods, its greatest strengths are creating insight and structure. The methodology creates clarity on how work is performed, while locating where inefficiencies lie. Not just for a select layer in the organization, but for all employees involved. Work is structured in such a way that solving issues and making improvements become daily routine. And because routines create habit and habits influence culture, Lean Six Sigma essentially fosters a culture of responsibility.

TLSSC’s courses are focused on teaching the full methodology using a holistic approach to achieve certification for a specific role within Lean or Lean Six Sigma, such as that of the Lean Practitioner, Green Belt or Black Belt. Upon completion full certification is awarded which prepares you to deploy the Lean Six Sigma or Lean methodology in your organization or operate within a Lean Six Sigma or Lean department.

The training courses are interactive, consisting of simulations, short videos, movies, theory, quizzes, and a theoretical exam. After this course you will be ready for your Lean Six Sigma project!

Join a community of over 25,000 students around the world and become an expert in Lean Six Sigma and be a change agent in your organization delivering valuable results!
