Trainings designed for your needs

SBTI training curricula are designed based our long experience of providing professional Lean Six Sigma training across a number of industries. Customer feedback makes us continuously develop and enhance the training for an improved learning experience. Our most recent redesigns are called Pedagogic Lean Six Sigma and Gemba Lean Six Sigma. Read more about these, our trainers and belt certification below.





Pedagogic Lean Six Sigma

At SBTI we pride ourselves for making initially complex tools and techniques practical, interesting and fun to use. We want to democratize tools and techniques that traditionally have been used by a small group of people in business.
One powerful way to make this happen is to work with practical end-to-end cases during training. In our green belt and black belt curriculum we use this method to maximize the learning experience. Each training week you practice on a class room project. You are not only learning qualitative and quantitative tools. You also learn change management, project management and reporting. And most important of all; You see the power of teamwork.

Gemba Lean Six Sigma

Go to gemba and look for muda was the gospel Taichi Ohno at Toyota practiced while developing Toyota Production System. The meaning is that you should always go and see for yourself. Don’t sit in a conference room trying to improve the process. Go out and observe! This is one of the most important practices while leading change.

Lean Six Sigma training such as Green Belt and Black Belt training traditionally takes place in class room. The class room has advantages such as you can focus the training and you have prepared training exercises where the risk for missing the point and not being able to introduce the topic is minimized.
We have got a lot of feedback over the years from participants in our belt training saying we want to see more realistic and practical exercises. We have listened to this feedback and are now introducing Gemba Lean Six Sigma.
In our open gemba belt training we always spend 1-2 days at a site. A site could be a manufacturing line but it could also be an office environment. In those cases we use real life data. We go to gemba.
If you are interested in an in-house gemba belt training we can help you organize this. It puts high requirements on all parties involved. We have to customize and adapt training. You as customer need to find a process or a set of processes that can be used as “training factory”. Close cooperation between both parties are essential. As a result we can promise a learning experience that is unique.

The roadmap to competitive business!

Through a Lean Six Sigma program with well defined roles and responsibilities, your company can achieve remarkable performance.

To start an improvement initiative, it requires a well thought out strategy and planning. One "element" we recommend is a "champion" training for management. We have extensive experience in avoiding the "pit falls" in the start up of an improvement initiative.

To select the DMAIC or DFSS (Design for Six Sigma) track, depends on the corporate needs. 

DMAIC is perhaps the most common track and aims to repair "broken" processes in the business. Many companies / employees start with this approach. DMAIC is short for the five phases in a Lean Six Sigma process improvement project - Define, Measure, Analyse, Improve, Control.

DFSS is a methodology to design new products or services linked to customer and corporate needs. The methodology also includes developing new processes for supplying these products and services. The methodology is aiming to speed up the design process and getting unique products and services to the market.

You can attend our open trainings that are offered regularly in Sweden and England. See Scheduled dates. Or we can train you and your colleagues in your business, through customized training. With the latter option, we agree on arrangements and time.
