Lean Six Sigma Trainings Description:

Coaching

“An organization’s ability to learn, and translate that learning into action rapidly, is the ultimate competitive advantage.” (Jack Welch)

With coaching, projects are delivered faster and with higher financial savings.

For companies where Lean Six Sigma is fully or partially deployed, we offer regular project coaching (on-site or remote) for process improvement experts (Improvement project leaders, Yellow Belts, Green Belt, Black Belt, Lean experts) with the aim of supporting project delivery in a dedicated scope and time, while achieving the highest possible benefits.

What is coaching?

Coaching sessions involves regular meetings with our consultants in the range of about 2 hours per project with a frequency established together with participants (depending on participant’s skills, the projects they are leading, the availability of expertise within organization etc.).

Project coaching help paricipants and organizations ensure that the defined goal of the project will be delivered, as well as tools and techniques suitable for the project will be used. Coaching sessions and the project work itself are important factors leading to the Yellow/ Green/ Black Belt certification (including pre-testing).

Coaching goals and characteristics:

  • We move on to coaching of project leaders after the training and in the course of project work. This will ensure the transfer of know-how in the organization.
  • Monitoring projects: status and compliance with the project plan.
  • Drawing up an action plan with the next steps.
  • Preparing for the workshop (detailed agenda, selection of tools, work with participants).
  • Assistance with data analysis (type of data, sampling, plotting, six sigma metrics, statistical tool selection).
  • "On-the job" training (increasing knowledge, explanation of the topic using a real project).
