  2. 2. Lean Six Sigma Yellow Belt Certification Dear Executive, Process improvement is about commitment to excellence and quality; a commitment that we make to change the way we work on a daily basis. Lean and Six Sigma are toolsets that an organization can use to dramatically improve quality, reduce cycle time and achieve cost savings. These tools work very well independently or in concert. While Lean focuses on eliminating waste, Six Sigma focuses on reducing process variation. The end goal of deploying one or both is typically the same - increased organizational efficiency through continuous improvement. The Lean Six Sigma Yellow Belt Certification course provides an overview of Six Sigma concepts, background and the Six Sigma “Define-Measure-Analyze-Improve-Control” process (DMAIC). You will learn how to develop and apply specific Six Sigma tools and methods to solve business challenges. Leaders should complete the Yellow Belt training with initial projects chartered, either ready for a Black Belt or Green Belt to lead or take with them to their training. The Lean Six Sigma Yellow Belt Certification will help you create a continuous improvement culture where employees and managers use Lean Six Sigma thinking and strategy to conduct day-to-day operations and long-term projects. These methodologies and management systems enable you and your organization to create a self-sustaining process improvement program that will propagate throughout your organization for both short-and long-term success. I look forward to meeting you in September! Sincerely, Amanda Ward Program Director American Strategic Management Institute 2

  6. 6. Lean Six Sigma Yellow Belt Certification In-House Training One of the more popular vehicles for accessing the Institute’s educational offerings is the delivery of on-site trainings and management facilitations. Bringing a training or facilitation in-house gives you the opportunity to customize a program that addresses your exact challenges and provides a more personal learning experience, while virtually eliminating travel expenses. Whether you require training for a small group or for an organization-wide initiative, the advanced learning methods employed by the Institute will create an intimate training atmosphere that maximizes knowledge transfer to enhance the talent within your organization. CUSTOMIZATION We realize that not all obstacles can be overcome by applying an “off-the-shelf” solution. While many training providers will offer you some variation of their standard training, the Institute’s subject matter experts will work with you and your team to examine your programs and determine your exact areas of need. The identification of real life examples will create a learning atmosphere that resonates with participants while at the same time providing immediate return on your training investment. Using interactive exercises that employ actual projects or scenarios from your organization, instructors can address specific challenges and align the curriculum of each session to your objectives. While the majority of on-site trainings are focused on smaller groups, the Institute also has the ability to accommodate organization-wide training initiatives. Utilizing multiple instructors, the Institute has the capacity to deliver courses to groups of up to 300 participants per day.
