Lean Six Sigma in your company
Although Lean Six Sigma is best known as a project-based improvement structure, it is much broader than that. Lean Six Sigma is an established philosophy, an organisational and improvement structure as well as a set of tools. Using this perspective Lean Six Sigma addresses organisational issues with respect to competitiveness, cost reduction and customer satisfaction.
Depending on your ambition, Lean Six Sigma can be implemented in phases. Every organisation is unique, without a common blueprint that universally applies. Together with you, The Lean Six Sigma Company will develop a plan of action tailored to your organisation.
Four reasons to choose us
In the 90s organisations were applying either Lean or Six Sigma. In 2002 the first literature about combining the methodologies was published. The Lean Six Sigma Company was founded in June of that year and our founders strongly believe in the benefits of combining Lean and Six Sigma.
Over the past 12 years thousand individuals and hundreds of companies have realised their Lean Six Sigma ambitions through our courses and certification.
1) Internationally accredited and recognised certification
Our Lean Six Sigma courses are acknowledged internationally.
We were the very first provider with an IASSC accreditation in Western Europe and we are, to this day, the only provider with an official Postgraduate accreditation for the Black Belt training (The Netherlands and Belgium).
The Lean Six Sigma Company provides courses in the United Kingdom, France, Germany, Switzerland, Italy, The Netherlands, Belgium and Ireland.

Our courses are provided in English, French, Italian and Dutch
2) Continuously improving our courses for services and manufacturing
“Practice what you preach” and we preach quality. Spearheaded by our Master Black Belts, training courses are being continuously improved. Having experience with hundreds of organisations, we have examples from virtually every industry.
Historically Lean Six Sigma has its roots in the manufacturing industry. Many of our Master Black Belts were certified by manufacturing companies such as General Electric, Toyota, RioTinto, DuPont and Avery Denison.
In addition, we have worked with many transactional businesses ranging from financial services to healthcare. We have developed specific training programmes for service-oriented industries.
Having such a large network of Master Black Belts, we pride ourselves in the depth of the knowledge available. Monthly Master Black Belt meetings are organised to share experience and exchange latest developments. Bi-annually knowledge sharing events take place throughout Europe to ensure we provide the best training sessions that meet market needs taking the latest trends into account.
3) From learning objectives to exams
Naturally, the content of a course is extremely important but we also believe the teaching methods employed are of equal importance. We have invested substantially in developing appropriate learning methods.
The content of the course is laid down in well-defined learning objectives in the Body of Knowledge for each separate course. Starting point was to classify the learning objectives according to the six different levels of knowledge complexity (Bloom’s taxonomy).
Using a pedagogical matrix developed especially for The Lean Six Sigma Company the learning objectives and corresponding knowledge complexity were translated into specific teaching methods.
As a result, depending on the subject matter different teaching methods will be employed. This leads to diverse interactive course days, full of examples and practical exercises rather than a dry and lengthy powerpoint lecture.
4) Focus on practical applicability
It is our mission statement Lean Six Sigma professionals we have certified can operate in a continuous improvement environment or project upon passing their exam.
Focus is on being able to ask the right questions and find the right tools require to provide the answers. The ability to apply Lean Six Sigma tools in practice is what we focus on, without losing sight of the theory behind Lean Six Sigma methods and tools.
We are proud of many of our certified Lean Six Sigma professionals who have been able to make substantial contributions in their working environment.
