Raising Effectiveness of the Organisation: Lean Six Sigma Training for NGOs
June 7-12, 2020Amsterdam, The Netherlands
Lean Six Sigma is the methodology which allows NGOs to raise effectiveness. The successful implementation of the Lean Six Sigma tools can allow an organisation to produce more results with the same amount of resources.
Lean Six Sigma methodology is widely used by the largest international companies which appreciate the value they can receive by implementing the set of relevant tools. Tools in the Lean Six Sigma training can be applied to the work of organisations in general as well as being useful for projects. In both cases, the implementation of Lean Six Sigma tools can increase the effectiveness of any work you do.
During the training, you will learn how to plan the inner workings of an organisation and its projects in order to reach the highest quality of work. Lean Six Sigma stands for continuous improvement. The methodology shows the way even for the most successful companies, to become more effective. Lean Six Sigma consists of a number of tools – implementation of those tools will allow to reduce costs and at the same time – improve quality!
