ASQ Launches Lean Six Sigma

ASQ Launches Lean Six Sigma Green Belt and Black Belt Courses

Courses Help Increase Business Productivity, Salary Potential

For Immediate Release

MILWAUKEE, Wis., May 28, 2014 —Maximizing profitability and customer satisfaction are primary objectives in today’s competitive business environment. ASQ's Learning Institute® introduces redesigned Lean Six Sigma Green Belt and Black Belt coursestoaddress those objectives. The courses will teach participants to use Lean and Six Sigma tools to improve workflow and reduce inefficiency.

Lean Six Sigma is a management approach focused on reducing costs and optimizing productivity while maintaining or enhancing quality through process improvement and waste reduction.

These peer-reviewed courses, created and taught by Master Black Belt industry experts with an average of over 25 years in the field, include instructor-led classroom training and one-on-one coaching. The newly designed curriculum brings both Green Belts and Black Belts together for two weeks to learn and build consistency as a strategic team. Black Belts then continue skill building for the following two weeks. A two-week Lean Six Sigma Black Belt transition course helps elevate a practicing or certified Green Belt to the Black Belt level. Training will take place in Milwaukee, Wis. and participants have the opportunity to practice and apply skills via exercises and their own individual business improvement projects. ASQ coaches continue advising participants up to six months after course completion and participants earn valuable continuing education units (CEUs).

“This hands-on training opportunity offers organizations an immediate measurable benefit,” said ASQ CEO William Troy. “Not only will team members learn Lean and Six Sigma skills, but they will implement them on an existing challenge to reap direct results.”

This course will be of interest to organizations that want to enhance the skills and performance of their team as well as individuals working in any industry in such functions as operations, quality, logistics, finance, production and engineering. According to a recent Quality Progress Salary Survey, professionals who complete a Six Sigma program earn $16,826 more per year than their counterparts who have not completed the training.

The next session starts on Monday, July 14. For more information or to register for the course, visit
