Course Detail

Apply Statistics for Lean Six Sigma


Applying Statistics for Lean Six Sigma builds measurement and analytical skills that enable more refined and sophisticated use of data. These newly acquired skills and techniques then become the "power tools" which all Lean Six Sigma Practitioners apply when charts, graphs and "descriptive" data methods fall short. Just as important as how to apply these analytical methods, this workshop emphasizes when and why statistical tools should be applied to add value to the organisation.
