Instructor-Led Onsite Training

Our Lean Six Sigma certified Master Black Belt instructors have 20+ years of experience delivering Lean and Lean Six Sigma, training, coaching and mentoring at all Lean Six Sigma levels. We work with our customers to provide service that meets the different needs, goals, and intentions of your company and we understand the importance of choosing the right provider and class for you. Our flexible delivery approach and ongoing support capability allows us to engage the teams in a very unique way, tailored to the specific needs of the company. We employ a highly collaborative approach with the ultimate goal of delivering cost-effective personal and leadership development as well as cultural and project-centric results that drive measurable return on your investment. The typical ROI of our Lean and Lean Six Sigma training being 3-20 times the amount invested. If you see an alignment with what you are looking to accomplish, give us a call or send us an e-mail to further discuss the details (Contact Us).

We have been working with various organizations worldwide, providing training, coaching and consulting services.

Our Master Black Belt instructors have implemented Lean Six Sigma, Lean and Continuous Improvement programs for health organizations such as Royal Victoria Hospital, St. Michael’s Hospital, William Osler Health System, Mt. Sinai Hospital, University Health Network, Hamilton Health Sciences. Also Shaw Communications, Solium Capital, Ontario Power Generation, City of Barrie, Regional Municipality of Niagara, Region of Peel, CIBC, Canadian Food Inspection Agency, Bombardier Aerospace, Toshiba, Honda, General Motors, Magellan Aerospace, Baxter Corp., Visteon, Velcro, Alcatel, Siemens, Bosch,  Delphi, Davis and Henderson, Velcro Industries, Magna International, Freightliner, Lear, Tower Automotive, Dana, Hughes Leitz, G.S.W., C.C.L., Steelcase, Samuel Son and Co., Ingersoll Rand, DairyWorld Foods, ASC, CWD, Canadian Standard Association, Andrew, CTS, OLG, CAA, ACS, Solium Financial, British Columbia Maritime Employers Association, Alcatel, Wal-Mart, Centennial College and many smaller organizations.

Our approach is based on having the participants come to the training sessions with pre-approved projects (or at least with projects in mind), ideally with some process data already available for analysis. The sessions would focus on these projects throughout the training so that exercises and workshops are based on real-life issues for maximum impact and learning. By using this approach, savings from projects typically results in a return on training investment of between 3 and 20 times of initial cost.

At the end of each of the levels of training, students will receive a certificate of attendance; however participants who progress to be Green Belt or Black Belt certified by leading or co-leading a Green or Black Belt project and pass the certification exam will receive a certificate stating that they have achieved ‘Certified Lean/Six Sigma Green/ Black Belt’ level. The certification cost per Green Belt student is $350, and includes exam, certificate and final certification project review. Certification is highly recommended, as the certification projects will provide a greater ROI on the training provided, as well as improve customer satisfaction, first pass yield, improve turnaround time and establish metrics, to realize organizational benefits and cost savings. It also solidifies understanding and builds confidence in the effective application of learnings from the training sessions.
