Hands on- and formative training with Lean Thinking and Six Sigma

InnovationTech uses Six Sigma methodology throughout our training to increase competitiveness and profitability in your business. Six Sigma, a quality improvement process that was created by Motorola during the 1980s. The improvement process core is a distinct structure and well defined roles. Every project is pursued with a uniform workflow involving five steps: Define, Measure, Analyze, Improve and Control.

The success factor in Lean and Six Sigma is the availability of educated leaders (Black Belts or Green Belts) with knowledge in organized problem solving and statistical analyzing skills. Lean/Six Sigma is a quality improvement concept that is being used in most industries with great success.
