Could Things Be Better?

Want to improve how things are done where you work?

Published May 26th, 2021

Do you feel like you need to get through tasks faster, but can’t afford to compromise quality by rushing things?

Has the landscape of your business or your role changed a lot over the past year and you’re struggling to get a handle on the best way to run everything?

Does it seem like there is wasted effort, time, or resources within your role, your team, or your business, but you’re not sure of a solid way to cut out the waste?

If you’re nodding in answer to one (or all!) of these questions, you are not alone.

Whether within our workday, our team, our department, or our organisations as a whole, most of us can think of processes that don’t run as smoothly or efficiently as we would like.

This 3-minute article introduces you to our Lean Six Sigma Yellow Belt, a 2-day course that:

  • introduces you to new ways of thinking
  • provides you with problem-solving techniques
  • shows you how to strengthen and improve processes in your role
  • teaches you how to identify and tackle areas of waste

What is “Lean Six Sigma” and how does it relate to me?

You’ve probably heard the following terms floating around LinkedIn, online articles, and possibly your own organisation:

  • “getting Lean”
  • “process improvement”
  • “continuous improvement”
  • “streamlining”
  • “targeting waste”
  • "Lean Thinking”

Lean and Six Sigma are two process improvement methodologies that, when used together, can be transformational for your work life.

While not everyone immediately identifies with “Lean Six Sigma” as being relevant to them, it’s an area that can be beneficial to all.

If you would like to improve how you do things in your role or your business, take a closer look at how Lean Six Sigma can help.

Project managers are constantly in cycles of working to deadlines and budgets while carrying out tasks of varying styles and scale.

Optimising efficiency and minimising any waste or downtime (both skills that you’ll gain through learning about Lean Six Sigma) are game-changers for project managers.

Team Leaders, Supervisors, & Managers

If you’re in a management role of any kind, you’ll want to make sure that things in your team or department are running as smoothly as possible.
