Course content is delivered over a series of seven insightful modules as follows:
Module 1: Six Sigma Basics
The course begins by providing candidates with a detailed introduction to the functions and objectives of Six Sigma, along with the potential benefits and limitations of the methodology. The DMAIC project management approach (Define, Measure, Analyse, Improve, Control) is also discussed, along with key Six Sigma project management integration considerations and the different Six Sigma ‘belts’.
Module 2: Project Improvement Tools
Module two brings a selection of important project improvement tools into discussion, along with their respective functions and applications. Examples of which include Cause and Effect Diagrams, Histograms, Flowcharts, Scatter Diagrams, Pareto Analysis, Check Sheets and Control Charts.
Module 3: Management Tools for Generating Ideas
Candidates are then introduced to several popular methods for generating ideas, alongside a series of essential project management tools. Candidates discuss the concepts of minor and major nonconformance, quality audits, the nominal group technique, multi-voting, consensus-building and more.
Module 4: Project Lifecycle
A detailed breakdown of the project life cycle is presented in module four, which discusses each of its component stages - Initiation, Strategic Planning, Execution, Control and Closure. The importance of setting targets using the SMART methodology is discussed - Specific, Measurable, Accurate, Realistic and Time-Bound - along with project charters, project resource planning and project cost control.
Module 5: Continuous Improvement
Module five examines the value of striving for continuous improvement at all stages throughout the project life cycle. The DMAIC project management approach is brought back into discussion, along with essential tools and techniques for monitoring and analysing the performance of a project at various stages.
Module 6: Project Risk Management
A crash-course introduction to project risk management follows in module six, which provides a detailed overview of each component stage in the risk management and mitigation process.
