Six Sigma is an enterprise-wide, project-driven quality improvement approach that emphasizes a systematic method to problem solving and decision-making based on data. Six Sigma results in increased customer satisfaction, improved quality and reduced costs. Lean is a method that concentrates on reducing waste by improving work flow and eliminating mistakes. Together, these two methodologies provide a powerful means for companies to delight their customers and improve bottom line results. Lean Six Sigma has been successfully applied in manufacturing firms, hospitals, educational institutions, banks, retail operations, insurance companies and other service-related industries. In each case, organizations can reduce waste, improve customer service and reduce costs.

In this Green Belt course students will learn how to implement the Lean Six Sigma methodology in healthcare settings to improve patient satisfaction and deliver bottom line results. Participants will learn the five-phase DMAIC project approach and master quality tools that they can apply immediately at their workplaces. Lean Six Sigma can be used to improve patient scheduling, optimize supply levels, streamline office management, and improve record keeping. Most importantly, Lean Six Sigma can increase patient satisfaction. Upon successful completion of the class, students will earn their Green Belt Certificate. Classes will meet in an online session once per week for one hour. Course includes certification.
