Supply Chain: Lean Six Sigma

This two-day open-enrollment program is designed for mid-level professionals, and is available as part of our Supply Chain Executive Certificate Program.

Description

In an environment of ever-increasing competition and customer expectations, the need for improved organizational performance has never been greater. Instead of applying an intuitive approach to streamlining and enhancing existing processes, Lean Six Sigma principles provide a powerful structured, quantitative method to optimize performance by eliminating waste, improving revenue and providing greater customer satisfaction. This two-day program combines the quantitative analysis of Lean Six Sigma with Kaizen, continuous improvement, and standardization. 
 
Using a blend of lecture, individual and small group work, and a role-playing simulation, you will learn how to successfully define improvement projects, analyze work flows, identify improvement opportunities, improve process flows, and control process-quality levels, while increasing responsiveness and reducing inventories.  You will leave this hands-on program ready to apply Lean Six Sigma principles in your organization. 
 

Faculty:

Philip Coles, MBA, M.S., Professor of Practice in Management, Lehigh University.  In addition to his formal education, Professor Coles studied lean and continuous improvement at The Kaizen Institute, the Manufacturer’s Resource Center, and the Toyota Supplier Support Center. He has over 30 years of industry experience, including as Vice President of Strategic Management, Project Manager, and Kaizen Facilitator in charge of the continuous improvement program at a multi-million dollar produce company. In this role, he visited world-class manufacturing companies such as Dell and Toyota to learn about their supply chains.
