The Business Process Improvement Concepts training module will provide participants with an overview of both the Lean and Six Sigma philosophies. The Lean philosophy is focused on identifying and eliminating waste, which is defined as any activity that absorbs resources but creates no value for the customer. The overview of Lean will include identification of the different types of waste as well as a description of some of the Lean tools that can help to address the identified waste. Six Sigma is a disciplined, data driven approach to reducing variation from customer specifications for any process. For our purposes, we will concentrate the overview of Six Sigma on the DMAIC methodology, which stands for Define-Measure-Analyze-Improve-Control. Finally, the Business Process Improvement Concepts training module will describe how the two philosophies complement each other and how they were incorporated into the University’s Business Process Improvement methodology.
