Lean Six Sigma Certification

NOT ALL LEAN SIX SIGMA CERTIFICATION IS THE SAME. We are a British Quality Foundation (BQF) accredited provider and like all high quality providers we follow a certification pathway requiring the delivery of real lean six sigma project work within your organisation.

‘Lean Six Sigma’ is a powerful combination of the ‘Lean’ and ‘Six Sigma’ methodologies. ‘Lean’ has a focus on eliminating process waste, increasing process speed and minimising lead times. ‘Six Sigma’ has a focus on eliminating process defects and process variation.

Lean Six Sigma Certification is considered by those who:

  • Already know the benefits of Lean Six Sigma and are ready to train.
  • Have been asked to train in and apply Lean Six Sigma by your organisation.
  • Have seen that most job roles involving business improvement require Lean Six Sigma to get an interview.
  • Want to consolidate your business improvement experience and skills.

Lean Six Sigma can give you, as an individual and an employee, tremendous advantages over others in your field. Being trained in Lean Six Sigma and being able to put that skill set on your CV proves that you have the commitment to improving your own business improvement skills. It also shows your commitment to improving the organisation you work for or want to work for.

Being certified goes that extra step and proves you can actually do what you say you can do and this is what an employer is looking for. Organisations are looking for employees who are enthusiastic and skilled at making change happen in a structured way. This will be especially true if you have applied the tools practically and have been supported through your first project by an expert team such as ours. Our training includes this step so that when you talk about Lean Six Sigma you can talk about your certification and the real life improvements you made, not just the theory behind it.

For this reason Lean Six Sigma Certification demands respect as it requires effort and people who work and recruit in an environment that use Lean Six Sigma know this. Lean Six Sigma will open doors to promotion, better salary and improve the probability of successfully finding alternative employment. Of the people trained in Lean Six Sigma, it is a minority who actually hold meaningful certification, therefore undergoing a certification process such as ours which is accredited by the British Quality Foundation (BQF) will set you above the rest of the crowd.

Being Lean Six Sigma certified proves your capability to:

  • Improve revenue
  • Reduce costs
  • Increase customer satisfaction
  • Improve quality
  • Streamline processes
  • Improve employee engagement

Having this capability benefits both you and the organisation you work for, or hope to work for.
