    • Communicate using Lean Six Sigma concepts
    • Think about an organisation as a collection of processes, with inputs that determine the output
    • Relate Lean Six Sigma concepts to the overall business mission and objectives
    • Use Minitab Statistical Software *
    • Receive “Certificate of Participation” **
