Route Six Sigma: Services - Executive Overview


Executive Overview

The Executive Overview is a one-day overview, or two-day workshop, to provide business leaders and corporate staff members an opportunity to understand Six Sigma and touch some of the Six Sigma methodologies.  Through touch and understanding, the business leader can make more informed decisions about how to implement Six Sigma in the organization. Registrants will learn what Six Sigma is and understand the basic Define, Measure Analyze, Improve and Control (DMAIC) Six Sigma process.  During the Overview course, they will experience several of the concepts that make Six Sigma a powerful part of the corporate business strategy. A key outcome of the two day workshop will be an understanding of the business-vital focuses, and a selection of initial deployment projects that meet those needs.
