College of Business Administration offers Lean Six Sigma introductory course

Submitted by Debbie Hagenmaier

The K-State College of Business Administration will offer students, faculty and staff, and the general public the opportunity to attend a two-day introductory course in Lean Six Sigma and its methodologies.

The Yellow Belt course teaches the foundations of Lean Six Sigma and demonstrates how the methods can be used by individuals and teams to improve customer satisfaction, reduce errors, increase efficiencies and work more effectively to solve problems.

Each participant completing the two-day program will receive a certificate of completion.

Participants can expect to:

  • Learn the history and background of Lean Six Sigma.
  • Participate in Lean Six Sigma projects that deliver meaningful results.
  • Master several key Lean Six Sigma tools.
  • Understand the define, measure, analyze, improve, and control, or DMAIC, problem methodology.
  • Establish process improvements in your work areas.
  • Understand the importance of "soft skills" in a Lean Six Sigma project.

Three sessions are offered in 2018: Jan. 11-12, May 14-15 and Aug. 16-17. The course will be taught at the College of Business building on the Manhattan campus and will meet from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Morning refreshments will be available. Lunch is on your own.

A reduced registration fee is offered to K-State students, faculty and staff. This training will appear on HRIS training summaries for university employees.

Space is limited and early registration is encouraged. To register or for more information, visit global.k-state.edu/business/development.
