I am often asked what makes SSD Global Solutions’ Leaner Six Sigma (LrSS™) different from the many Lean Six Sigma programs available today.  This has been an easy question to answer!  We honored the Voice of the Customer and work to co-create the next generation of Lean Practitioners.  As a result, we simplified the statistics, made the concepts less difficult to understand and cut out all the unnecessary jargon.

In addition, as part of the program, we started providing forms and templates that allow students to effortlessly duplicate what they learned in class.  This method facilitates immediate application of knowledge to real projects or process improvements.

We ultimately trust in the student’s subject matter expertise and respect their knowledge base.  We believe they know their environment much better than we do!  Our goal is to align their irreplaceable abilities and past experiences with our LrSS™ toolkit.  This allows each individual to become better, faster and more cost-effective in their current situation and future endeavors.

The most valuable part of our training is the tools and methodologies promoted are framed in a way that can be applied to business as well as personal life.  In our fast-paced and busy world, everyone can use a little help increasing their critical thinking skills and problem-solving capabilities.

Leaner Six Sigma (LrSS™) is not just a workshop to become certified in Lean Six Sigma. It is a learning experience that can provide a road map to achieve buy-in and advance our student’s careers.
