Lean Six Sigma

Kent State offers the unique approach of weaving Lean, Six Sigma, Team-Oriented Problem Solving (TOPS) and Theory of Constraints (TOC) methods into a seamless certification that can help you achieve substantial improvements in your organization.

Outstanding Facilitators
Several companies have expanded their program and sent additional candidates for training and certification based on their participants' outstanding reviews of the depth and breadth of knowledge of the Kent State Lean Six Sigma facilitators.

Project
Each participant of Kent State’s Lean Six Sigma Training and Certification is required to complete a project using the methods learned. This will contribute significant
results to the sponsoring organization.

Implementation Expertise
After the training program, Lean Six Sigma facilitators will assist you in successful implementation of Lean Six Sigma principles in your work environment. Kent State also offers other Lean and Six Sigma consulting and project coaching services, as well as on-site training.
