Programme Structure

Prior to the commencement of the formal training there is an on-site 3 day session with two objectives. Firstly to train a number of company management in 6 Sigma champion training, to enable them to understand the methodology and provide a support framework for the BB candidates. Secondly to identify potential projects with the potential BB candidates, two per company. Experience has shown that in order to maximize the benefit of the training the selection of a suitable first project is crucial.

The course is divided into 3 Modules, each of one week's duration. The course builds the competence of the participant logically and systematically, providing time between the modules in order to practice the techniques on the participant's project. Project selection and guidance throughout the practical application of the tools are paramount. Hosca's program uniquely builds in a level of flexible support to the program to ensure each participant fully understands and can apply the techniques taught in the classroom.

The contents of the modules are as follows:
Module 1 // Module 2 // Module 3
