continuous improvement certification... have you wondered?

Have you ever wondered how to increase the pace of your sales, maximize profit, generate a greater financial and commercial balance, a better use of your inventory level, a more balanced management of the human factor, greater and better projections of return on investment, productive improvements, logistics, understanding system and resource restrictions, among others?

These are just some of the benefits that knowing how to have the elements of knowledge that a professional in Lean Six Sigma, with links to other methodologies such as Theory of Constraints, among others, could have an impact on your business, in the achievement of goals or objectives set. It is not only about benefit and operational integration, but the entire management sequence is also integrated, with a better understanding of the management of resources (human, financial), to get the most out of your business, and be in tune with the needs of the market.

When we talk about quality methodologies and surroundings it seems that they do not affect the commercial function. Without a doubt the marketing and sales touched by that halo of art are not made for order, structuring and improvement, or are they? Of course, yes, the fact that a discipline requires certain unstructured skills (empathy, intuition, influence capacity, etc.) does not mean that it cannot be managed as a process that is continuously improved and managed.

We invite you to delve into the knowledge in the various training areas, with the aim of certifying yourself in the domain of the various tools that make them up, justified in real projects and with proven effectiveness in the benefit that you want to achieve, be it reducing costs, improve the process environment, production, the logistics chain, the environment of the organization in terms of the human factor, financial, information systems, among many more benefits.

Roadmap to Continuous improvement certification 

Quality has different approaches, but two common enemies: waste and variability. Make processes faster, quicker, more comprehensive, and make common sense your basic instinct. The Lean Expert ensures processes that are streamlined and keep the quality expectations from all your clients, providers, and team. Make processes lean, save time, optimize space, plan with a plan, and improve your workload, well-being, and turnover time.

The Lean Expert core tools focus on day-to-day activities as much as strategical planning and project management. The spectrum of tools allows for a comprehensive mindset of continuous improvement.

Bring your toolset to your desktop activities as well. Service industry related activities, which encompass about 80% of our regular labor, are the perfect ground for exploring these tools. Instead of a one tool-fixes-all approach, Lean Experts know when and how to use each of the tools, analyzing the problem to be solved and applying only the right effort to solve it.

Stop wasting time waiting for problems to arise. The Lean Expert mindset works in a preventive improvement as well. Focus your energy not only in fixing problems but also establishing the parameters for continuous improvement and error-proofing your processes. Saving time can happen proactively, and it is one of our main focuses.

Invest your time in planning, improvement, and growing your processes to meet not only with today’s demands, but also set the foundation to face upcoming challenges.

Quality can be measured. In fact, just about anything can be measured. And everything that can be measured can be improved. Variability is one of the common enemies of productivity and quality. Green Belt experts bring evidence based statistical analysis and solutions to every process; from production lines to pay-roll and processing.

We all want better. Better products, better bang for our buck, better savings, better experience…

What is quality really? The (multiple) million dollars quest. To some it might be investment to enjoyment ratio, and for some it might be durability. Quality extends to all areas of perception and analysis.

Think about a cup of coffee. Quality might be effectiveness of caffeine and booster results in your daily commute; to you it might be how fast you get your cup. Some clients will ask about the time allowed for bloom, and maybe the concern will be the origin of the beans. And we haven’t even talked about taste yet!

So how do we approach quality? By evidence. We can measure just about any parameter, listen to our clients, and analyze to find ways of improving our quality markers. But that’s not it. Six Sigma experts know this is only half of the process. The Six Sigma expert continues with improvement, setting the parameters to keep improvement continuous.

If this already rings a bell, let’s reduce the scope by making it clear: Six Sigma experts work with the DMAIC methodology.

Six sigma Professionals or Green Belts dwell in statistical work; finding variability and attacking it to reduce it. Finding and sorting out all the data, measuring it, and analyzing it to provide evidence required to achieve quality.

All quality processes and productivity efforts require direction, coaching, and a committed leadership to sustain. Improvement is continuous and it is designed at its core to face every upcoming challenge; from Human Resources related issues to technological advances. In an always growing and self-improving sector, Black Belts are called to lead change and adapt. Using Lean and Six Sigma tools in conjunction with leadership, we can assure a Lean Company.

Quality is approached by measuring and analyzing data. Improvements require evidence and Black Belts are experts in statistical work; but the principal focus of the Black Belt is continuous improvement. Six Sigma experts will take care of all the statistical work, but Black Belts will ensure the last part of our DMAIC methodology: continuing with the implemental work of quality.

Black Belts challenge not only processes on paper but oversee the organizational climate that allows for improvement. This often requires understanding corporate processes and strategic planning. Black Belts lead the Lean Company mindset and ensure the quality mentality throughout the processes that result in the final product: a quality product our client is not only willing but excited to pay.

Black Belts are Lean and Six Sigma experts. The toolset ensures quality related to making processes slimmer and faster as much as reducing variability. Overseeing the continuous implementation of these challenges, plus leading the challenges to adapt and think fast with an ever-growing and everchanging industry.
