Maintain quality, improve processes and reduce costs with Lean Six Sigma


Many of TWI's customers work in industrial and process-oriented activities in an environment where quality is paramount and costs need to be kept competitive. To assist with this, TWI is offering Lean Six Sigma yellow belt courses in March 2018.

Lean Six Sigma is a framework of principles, tools and techniques to help problem solving and process improvement, so that products and services can be produced better, faster and cheaper.

Delivered by a trainer with over 25 years of international industry experience, the training offers an insight into the essentials of successful industrial and business methodology to support process improvement projects so you can streamline your business.
