Introduction to Six Sigma--Financial Services Version

Course ID ISSFS01MS
Format Web-based

Anyone interested in Six Sigma improvement methodologies, concepts, and language.


This course is designed as an introduction to Six Sigma concepts and methodologies. The Define-Measure-Analyze-Improve-Control ('DMAIC') methodology is presented with case studies and practice exercises. This version of the Introductory course is a 'financial services' version, which focuses the DMAIC approach to process improvement on service-oriented processes typically found in either financial industries, including insurance, mortgage lending, and banking, to name a few, or financial administration functions common to manufacturing operations. With a heavy practice orientation, as much as a third of your time will be spent working through interactive practice exercises and online assessments.
This is a self-paced course that is a multimedia, interactive learning experience. It contrains audio lectures, slide shows, virtual classroom discussion, online notebook, toolbox, quizzes, glossary, and a help feature. All course content is available on demand (asynchronous format), and can be started or stopped at any time to provide maximum scheduling flexibility. Java-based media delivery is employed to consume minimal bandwidth, and is not blocked by most firewalls. You have 60 days to complete the course.

WebEx – Virtual Course: Advance Preparation and Student Information

Join a Test Session

We strongly suggest that you join a WebEx test session in advance of your scheduled virtual training, using your preferred web browser. This can help prevent problems launching content the day your training begins.

If you do not have administrative privileges on the SAME computer you will be using the day of your training (i.e., your workstation within your organization) you may need the assistance of your local IT/IS help desk staff for the platform to engage correctly.

To join a test session (meeting), click here and enter your name and email address to join. If successful, you will see a screen that says "Congratulations! Your system is now set up properly ..."

Deactivate Pop-up Blockers

You should deactivate any pop-up blockers, spam filters, and company firewalls that could prevent the WebEx client platform or web-based course from working properly. Third-party toolbars such as Bing, Yahoo, and Google should also be disabled due to their own pop-up blocking capabilities.
