On-Site Custom Corporate Training: Six Sigma Process Improvement

Best practice companies use a system of defined metrics in manufacturing, service, and financial processes to ensure efficiency. This quality initiative - Six Sigma Process Improvement (SSPI) - is supported and driven by top leaders in today's successful organizations. WPI's SSPI Certificate provides the structure and expertise that will lead your organization to improved productivity and profitability, and can help you make the cultural changes necessary for success.

Your organization can achieve consistency and Six Sigma quality in every product, process, and transaction.

The SSPI program is designed to be delivered at your corporate site with participation by cross-functional teams from your organization. Direct benefits to your bottom line are realized because our faculty incorporates your own organization's processes, products, and data. A special feature of this program is a team project assigned by senior management.

Program Structure

Ten days of company-focused, continuous improvement training, divided into four distinct learning levels to allow participants time to absorb and apply the techniques learned. Entire program can be completed in as little as 16-18 weeks.

The Foundation Level (Executive Summary): A three-to four-hour executive overview custom designed for your senior management team - the drivers and supporters of your company-wide SSPI initiative.

The Learner Level: Four days of training in the basic tools and techniques of process improvement and team process training with strong emphasis on understanding and satisfying your customers' needs.
