Why study the CEPAS Lean Six Sigma Yellow Belt with e-Careers? 

Lean Six Sigma is a proven methodology aimed at improving productivity, increasing customer satisfaction, and reducing operational costs. 

Lean refers to maximising customer value and minimising the areas of waste in processes, creating enhanced customer satisfaction and less wasted resources. Six Sigma is the ongoing effort to continually reduce product and process variation through a defined project approach. Combining these two approaches results in a range of benefits, including reduced costs, retained business, improved staff morale, and increased customer satisfaction. 

Lean Six Sigma professionals are in high demand due to their ability to use problem-solving techniques to reach business solutions, save costs, ensure higher customer satisfaction, and improve efficiency in all areas of the business.
