Project Management for Lean Six Sigma Teams

Course Code:       MHC-2013 Delivery Type:   Classroom
Course Length :   3 Days Price:                $695.00

A Lean Six Sigma project is an expensive and risky undertaking. If the objective is true performance improvement, the project may extend for anywhere from one to eight months and consume not only funding resources, but also huge amounts of intellectual capital of people whom otherwise would be doing something else. This course gives you an in-depth emersion into the world of Project Management by teaching you how to initiate, plan, control and complete your projects more efficiently and effectively. Project Management is the application of concepts, techniques, and principles to optimize project success. The course provides practical concepts, techniques, and tools you can use to ensure your Lean Six Sigma project gets the results you need to be competitive!
Who Should Attend

This course is for any one who will be responsible for managing, leading, and coordinating Lean Six Sigma projects which require knowledge of practical, formal project management concepts, techniques, and tools.
How You Will Benefit

The attendee will learn how Business process management (BPM) brings a much needed perspective to the process improvement effort by defining enterprise processes that cross the many functional and departmental boundaries and produce the products and services of the organization. This ability to define an enterprise context allows the Lean Six Sigma team to focus on problems that affect the entire system, not just one small part of it. By bringing together the synergistic power of Business Process Management (BPM) and Lean with the statistical discipline and rigor of Six Sigma, an organization will be able to bring its entire problem solving knowledge to bear in a multi-dimensioned way, ensuring a greater probability of success! A participant in this course will benefit greatly through:
  • Proven, hands-on, blended approach to learning (with many group discussions, exercises, and case studies) that includes classroom participation and the use of Mountain Home's online resources.
  • Latest on government process improvement trends, concepts, and implementation strategies.
  • Up-to-date reference/course materials.
