Mukilteo, WA (PRWEB) February 22, 2013
Gemba Academy, the leader in online lean and six sigma training, announces the launch of the new School of Six Sigma. The School of Six Sigma consists of over 200 high-definition video modules covering topics ranging from Project Selection to Advanced Response Surface Design of Experiments.
Also included several of the most popular, and critical, School of Lean courses such as 5S Workplace Productivity and Practical Problem Solving.
The Gemba Academy Difference
Both the School of Six Sigma and the School of Lean follow the traditional Gemba Academy "site-based" subscription model: train as many as you want, whenever you want, and as often as your want, for one fixed annual price. Far less expensive than traditional training, bringing in consultants, or sending people to workshops.
Traditionally, six sigma has been seen by some as an "elitist" methodology where only a few "chosen" people are selected to attend training. The site-based subscriptions - which start at $1,295 for a one year subscription - will enable anyone interested in learning about lean and six sigma the opportunity to do so.
For those interested, there is also a black belt certification option which will require both project work and the passing of an exam. This is a rigorous process, and not a certification mill where people essentially buy their certification.
Lean vs. Six Sigma
Additionally, another aspect of Continuous Improvement relates to the lean versus six sigma debate. There are some "lean thinkers" who have less than kind things to say about six sigma. And, to be sure, there are hard core "six sigma practitioners" who believe lean is nothing more than laying tape on the ground and drawing value stream maps; obviously flawed logic. Gemba Academy believes that both lean and six sigma are valuable improvement methods.
