Lean Six Sigma has proven to be an outstanding methodology to improve business performance, saving Fortune 500 companies billions of dollars over recent years. Those companies with the most success, regardless of industry or geography, have one thing in common: training their employees in Lean Six Sigma skills.
We saw this first hand, having successfully led major implementations of Lean Six Sigma in diverse industries and businesses that spanned the globe. These experiences absolutely convinced us of the power high-quality training delivers in firmly grounding people in the basic skills needed to manage and improve their business processes.
Yet, finding useful training has become a real challenge. Programs have become overly enamored with advanced statistics and tools, overshadowing foundational problem-solving methods and thinking. In fact, the vast majority of people in a company don't need such advanced techniques to improve process performance. First let's get everyone in the game and equipped to win.
Our success will ultimately be measured by the success people, armed with our strong set of back-to-basic tools, have in making their companies more productive and more responsive to their customers’ needs. Lynx Learning incorporates this concept into everything it does. We invite you to share that experience with us.
Training is only as good as the people who develop its content.
