Understanding the benefits of Lean Six Sigma 

Lean Six Sigma helps to improve productivity, reduce operational costs and increase overall customer satisfaction. 

Lean methodologies maximise customer value while minimising process wastage, enhancing customer satisfaction levels, and reducing wasted resources. Six Sigma methodologies provide the means to continually reduce process and product variation through a defined project approach.

When these two project management methodologies are combined, the benefits experienced are typically a reduction in costs, increase in staff morale, retained business, and an increase in customer satisfaction.

The international standard for both Lean and Six Sigma is ISO 18404:2015, which defines the management systems requirements for successfully managing and implementing Lean and Six Sigma. It also provides the necessary competencies for people applying and adopting the two approaches.

Being trained to the ISO 18404:2015 standard in Lean Six Sigma will show employers that you meet the highest standard in Lean Six Sigma.

Professionals with Lean Six Sigma certifications remain in high demand by employers, mainly due to their ability to successfully utilise problem-solving techniques to create business solutions while saving costs and ensuring higher customer satisfaction. Lean Six Sigma professionals also provide overall business efficiency improvements and quality control.

About ISO 18404:2015 

Since its inception in 2015, ISO 18404:2015 has provided an internationally recognised benchmark for Lean Six Sigma methodologies. 

ISO 18404:2015 defines the approaches organisations are required to have employed to meet the required standards, and very few training organisations around the world are independently accredited to deliver Lean Six Sigma Certifications aligned to ISO18404:2015. 

e-Careers is the official training provider nominated by CEPAS, A Bureau Veritas Company to deliver ISO18404:2015 Lean Six Sigma Certifications to individuals across the globe. 

Why is there a need for an ISO standard for Lean Six Sigma? 

With no universal standard for Lean Six Sigma, training results varied widely between delegates, making it hard for employers to see the true value of an individual and their experience. As many training courses were either uncertified, or not certified to a high enough standard, ISO 18404:2015 was introduced, to become a strict Lean Six Sigma standard.

What does an ISO 18404:2015 certification mean for me?

Being trained to the strict ISO 18404:2015 standard enables you to confidently explain to others that you meet the single standard of Lean Six Sigma, making you a valuable, highly trained Lean Six Sigma team member. ISO 18404:2015 certification holders are highly sought after, and your certificates will showcase your knowledge and skills to future employers. ISO 18404:2015 certificates are internationally recognised, and your credentials will be published on an online public register, accessible by employers and clients. 

Originally, ISO 18404:2015 was a complex and hard standard to achieve. CEPAS, Bureau Veritas and e-Careers has made it both simple and affordable now. 

By meeting the ISO 18404:2015 competencies help to make you valuable and employable throughout a wide range of managerial roles in this industry.
