About the Program
This valuable learning series is designed to help Lean Six Sigma project managers (Black Belts and Green Belts) with the aspects of change management and project management that are critically important to successful project completion. Participants will utilize successful tools, techniques and
concepts to help ensure that their Lean Six Sigma projects are successfully completed with buy-in from those who will maintain the improvements.

Who Should Attend
Individuals responsible for managing, leading, coordinating and supporting Lean Six Sigma projects. Additionally, Champions, team members and sponsors will benefit from learning these basic concepts, tools and techniques, while practicing through realworld project simulations.

Performance Focus
One of the core principles of a Lean Six Sigma organization is to choose the best and brightest process or subject matter experts to become Lean Six Sigma project managers (Black Belts and Green Belts) for high-impact, strategically selected projects. Selected projects are carefully aligned to the annual goals of the organization and must be successfully completed on time.

While Black Belts and Green Belts are very effective individuals, they usually have had little or no training in the principles of project management or change management. Learning these important aspects of successful project completion through trial and error not only increases project cycle time but also adds an unnecessary burden to an already challenging Lean Six Sigma position.

In this course, you will practice using the tools and techniques necessary to ensure that a cross-functional team effectively completes a project on time. These practical skills, concepts and principles can be taken back to the job and successfully applied to any Lean Six Sigma
or Design for Six Sigma project.
