Six Sigma Training and Consulting Services

Six Sigma is a well established methodology for improving organizational processes. Most processes consist of multiple component processes, many of which can be the source of significant delays and non-value added expense. The six sigma method is used to identify the biggest opportunities in your key processes and then apply a specific strategy and tool set for cutting the unnecessary costs and reducing process cycle times.
