Why Study Six Sigma?

Six Sigma is widely considered the most capable, flexible and broadly-applicable of all project management frameworks.  Introduced by Motorola in 1986, the Six Sigma DMAIC methodology has since been adopted by some of the world’s biggest and most influential businesses.  Far from a simple adjustment to traditional project management processes, Six Sigma is a completely separate methodology that focuses on quality improvement, performance optimisation and the elimination of waste.  Across all industries and sectors, Six Sigma can be applied to almost any project or process in any business environment.  To achieve endorsed 6 Sigma certification is to become an invaluable asset in the eyes of employers and decision-makers at all levels.  Whether new to project management or already working in the field, this exclusive course could help fast-track your progression up the career ladder.

 

Course Syllabus

Still in search of the best Six Sigma courses near me?  With Staff Training Solutions, the web’s most dynamic distance learning programmes are right at your fingertips!  Our exclusive 6 Sigma online course explores this fascinating project management framework over a series of six units as detailed below:

Unit 1: Six Sigma Basics        

A detailed introduction to the basics of Six Sigma is provided in the first unit, which also separates the DMAIC approach into its contributory components - (Define, Measure, Analyse, Improve, Control).  The functions and objectives of the Six Sigma framework are discussed, along with how Six Sigma can be applied to improve almost any process or existing project management strategy.

Unit 2: Project Improvement Tools

Candidates are then introduced to the seven most important Six Sigma project management tools - Cause Effect Diagrams, Histograms, Flowcharts, Scatter Diagrams, Pareto Analysis, Check Sheets and Control Charts.  Examples of each are provided for reference purposes, along with an examination of their functions and potential benefits in the field of project management.

Unit 3: Management Tools for Generating Ideas  

Several helpful tools and techniques for generating ideas are introduced and discussed in the third unit, in which learners examine the nominal group technique, multi-voting and consensus-building.  Affinity diagrams and brainstorming sessions are also discussed, along with the objectives of quality audits and the difference between minor and major nonconformance.

Unit 4:  Project Lifecycle

A detailed dissection of the project lifecycle follows in unit four, guiding candidates through each component stage individually - Initiation, Strategic Planning, Execution, Control and Closure.  The process of establishing goals in accordance with the SMART model is also discussed - Specific, Measurable, Accurate, Realistic and Time-Bound, alongside additional subtopics such as project resource planning, project costs and the project charter.

Unit 5: Continuous Improvement

The role of Six Sigma in a continuous improvement project is discussed in the fifth unit, which provides a more detailed breakdown of the DMAIC project management methodology.  The components of the DMAIC model are studied in-depth from a continuous improvement perspective.

Unit 6: Customer Relationships       

In the sixth and final unit, learners explore the business-wide benefits of establishing and maintaining strong customer relationships.  The connection between customer satisfaction and business performance is examined, along with the ServQual model for customer satisfaction questionnaires and an introduction to the RATER model: Reliability, Assurance, Tangibles, Empathy and Responsiveness.

Career Path

Six Sigma certification could prove highly-beneficial for current and prospective project managers alike.  Typical roles in a project management setting include project controller, project planner, PMO analyst, team assistant, implementation manager, project support officer, associate project manager, project leader and many more besides.  Whatever your current position and objectives, you’ll be one step closer to achieving them with an endorsed Level 4 Six Sigma Project Management Diploma on your CV!  Entry-level salaries for qualified project managers typically starting at around £25,000.
