Six Sigma Black Belt

Fall 2012 program has been canceled

Six Sigma is a customer-driven approach that provides an overall framework of quality improvement. The methodology follows a disciplined problem solving approach. The goal of a six sigma program is to improve customer satisfaction through reduction and elimination of nonconformities. It is achieved, not through increased inspection activities which only add cost, but through breakthrough process improvement and the reduction in variation.

Using the powerful tools and methods of Six Sigma improves processes by increasing effectiveness and efficiency. The quality of the instructors and applicability of the training content is crucial. The delivery team, led by Dale K. Mize, has trained over 1,000 individuals in Six Sigma since 2001. The team was the first public providers of Six Sigma training in the upper Midwest. They have decades of experience and are experts in their particular field. The knowledge has been gained from real industry practice – not solely theoretical. View the instructor biographies.
