MILWAUKEE, Wis., July 31, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- via PRWEB - ASQ, the leading authority on quality in all fields, organizations and industries, is offering its redesigned Lean Six Sigma Green Belt and Black Belt course starting in September to teach participants to improve workflow, increase efficiency and maximize profitability.
The ASQ Learning Institute redesigned its Lean Six Sigma Green Belt and Black Belt courses to better address the primary objectives in today's competitive business environment using lean and Six Sigma tools.
Lean Six Sigma is a management approach focused on reducing costs and optimizing productivity while maintaining or enhancing quality through process improvement and waste reduction.
Upcoming courses -- designed to be applicable to all sectors and industries -- will be held in Phoenix, beginning Sept. 8, 2014, and in Orlando, Florida, beginning Jan. 26, 2015.
The newly designed curriculum brings together Green Belt and Black Belt participants for two weeks to learn and build consistency as a team. Black Belt students then continue skill-building for an additional two weeks. Participants will have the opportunity to apply the skills through exercises and individual business improvement projects.
A two-week Lean Six Sigma Black Belt transition course helps elevate a practicing or certified Green Belt to the Black Belt level.
These peer-reviewed courses were created and are taught by Master Black Belt experts with more than 25 years in industry. The courses include instructor-led classroom training and one-on-one coaching.
ASQ experts will be available for continued coaching up to six months after course completion, and participants earn valuable continuing education units (CEUs).
