Due to the COVID -19 crisis courses will be provided as a Online Interactive Seminar. As soon as Face to Face courses are feasible we will indicate this on the site. The schedule of the Online Interactive Seminar is longer as online content delivery can only be delivered effectively in short blocks. Delegates who have participated in an online seminar can attend a face to face course free of charge at a later date if that learning experience is more suitable for them. The Black Belt Industrial sector module can only be delivered Face to Face and is therefore not part of the Online Interactive Seminar.

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.
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.
A lot has changed since 2002. Today Lean cannot be imagined without Six Sigma any longer and globally a large community has emerged which focuses on the combined methodologies.
Over the past 16 years, thousands of professionals 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.
Content of the courses is ISO18404 and ISO13053 certified.
We are the only provider with an official Postgraduate accreditation for the Black Belt training (The Netherlands and Belgium).
The Lean Six Sigma Company provides courses all over the world.
Our courses are provided in English, French, Spanish, German, Italian, Turkish, Polish, Portuguese, Russian and Dutch.
2) Continuously improving our courses
“Practice what you preach” and we preach quality. Spearheaded by our Master Black Belts, training courses are 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 experiences and exchange latest developments. Bi-annually knowledge sharing events take place throughout Europe to ensure we provide the best training sessions that meet market requirements taking the latest trends into account.
3) From learning objectives to exams
Naturally, the content of a course is extremely important but we 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 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 make a valuable contribution to continuous improvement initiatives upon passing their exam.
Focus is on being able to ask the right questions and find the right tools required 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 a substantial impact either academically or in their working environment.
What is Lean Six Sigma?
Six Sigma is often mentioned in one sentence with Lean. Originally, Lean and Six Sigma were two different process improvement methodologies. Today, friend and foe agree that Lean and Six Sigma are complementary to each other.
This is best illustrated by Michael George in his book: Combining Six Sigma Quality with Lean Production Speed. In many Six Sigma projects, Lean Tools are being used to improve processes.
Quality, variation, and defects are clearly Six Sigma factors. Speed and process flow are clear Lean elements.
