lean six sigma project champions

All Project Management approaches require projects to be sponsored. Lean Six Sigma projects, although “bite-sized”, are no different in this regard – even the most experienced Green and Black Belts will struggle without management support. What this course provides is the background to Lean Six Sigma projects and the specific components required to sponsor them effectively.

  • Providing strategic direction for the team.
  • Developing the improvement charter and ensuring the scope of the project is sensible.
  • Remaining informed about the project’s progress and taking an active role in project reviews.
  • Providing financial and other resources for the project team.
  • Helping to ensure the business benefits are realised in practice.
  • Being prepared to stop a project if necessary.
  • Helping to get buy-in for the project across the organisation.
  • Ensuring appropriate reward and recognition for the project team in light of their success.

This course teaches you how to select and sponsor improvement projects, providing support and strategic guidance to the Green and Black Belts. You will learn the fundamentals of the Lean Six Sigma DMAIC approach and the questions to ask at each stage review.

While the explicit focus is on the enabling and governing role of the Champion, the broad level of the additional content is that of Yellow Belt and you will still learn new ways to think about and manage process performance.

You’ll be equipped to interact knowledgably with the Lean Six Sigma practitioners in your business. 

You can become recognised as a British Quality Foundation Lean Six Sigma Project Champion.
