Education is a key part of our consulting approach and we offer a variety of training options.

To support geographically dispersed organizations we offer these workshops as live virtual sessions with all of the exercises and interactive discussions of our in-person workshops.

Any of these workshops can be customized, focusing on specific tools or topical areas and go very deep into these subjects. Or, we can cover these topics more broadly and higher level for general understanding or for public speaking events and conventions.

Six Sigma DMAIC Yellow Belt Workshop

Six Sigma is a set of tools and techniques for solving difficult problems and reducing variation in processes. It also includes a rigorous methodology known by the acronym DMAIC, for the phases Define, Measure, Ana- lyze, Improve and Control.

Six Sigma lets the data tell the true story, leading the practitioner to the root cause. It can also help you understand why sometimes your process can meet the target goals and other times fail to meet them, and how you can assess if this is normal or “special cause” variation.

This five session workshop provides education with practical techniques and tips for applying Six Sigma and DMAIC at your workplace:

  • Defining the Problem: Supplier-Input-Process-Output-Customer (SIPOC), Voice-of-the-Customer (VOC), Voice-of-the-Business (VOB)
  • Measuring the Problem and Process: Sampling plans, Measurement Repeatability and Reproducibility, Scale Standardization
  • Analyzing the Problem and Process: Cause & Effect Analysis, Pareto Analysis, Descriptive Statistics, Hypothesis Testing, Experimental Design
  • Improving the Process: Generating Solutions, Failure-Mode-Effects-Analysis (FMEA), Process Capability, Lean Operations
  • Controlling and Sustaining Improvements: Performance Measurement, Visual Workplace, Standard Work

Supply Chain Management Workshop

Supply chain management encompasses the movement of materials, information and money from suppliers, their suppliers, through your firm, to your customers and their customers. While most people consider supply chain management key to controlling costs, the most important aspect is customer service.

Supply chain management controls the levers in a business that drive on time delivery and quality of the products and services you sell to your customer.

This practical, hands-on workshop covers the key decisions and management theories supply chain managers and leaders must face. Session one is an overview of supply chain decisions and the basis for effective decision-making. Three of the five sessions are dedicated to inventory management, forecasting, and Sales and Operations Planning, all critically important to effective supply chain management, company performance, and customer satisfaction.

Finally, session five will tie it all together with the implementation of supply chain Key Performance Measures.

This workshop will balance theory with best practices and practical tips, including actual case studies and
mathematical models.

This five session workshop includes:

  • Important supply chain decisions and management theories
  • Demand forecasting
  • Improving inventory performance
  • Sales and operations planning
  • Implementation of Supply Chain Key Performance Measures

Lean Application Workshop

Lean enables organizations to service customers faster and more productively by eliminating non‐value add- ed activities known as the Eight Wastes: extra motion, overproduction, unnecessary movement, waiting, inventory, rework, transport and underutilized personnel. Visual management techniques, pull systems, balanced work, cellular production, work teams and standardization are the tools used to fight the Eight Wastes. Lean has produced significant results in diverse industries, such as insurance, healthcare, production and distribution.

This five session workshop provides education for Lean tools with practical techniques and tips for applying Lean at your workplace:

  • Continuous Improvement Overview and History Value Stream Mapping
  • Value Stream Mapping
  • Process Flow Mapping
  • Quick Changeover & KanBan
  • 5S & Facility Layout
