Abstract:
In this non-technical course you will be introduced to the Lean Six Sigma “DMAIC” methodology and how it relates to the PMBOK, the SEI CMMI, and other approaches to product and process improvement.

This methodology has been widely adopted by the vast majority of Fortune 1000 and many multi-national organizations worldwide, and has delivered billions of dollars in bottom line financial benefits.

These methods, widely used since their development in the 1980’s, are the most effective approaches yet devised to improve processes and products in every sector of the economy.
