Recently Dow Chemical released a presser stating it would implement six sigma training options for employees.
With the recent downturn in the economy many corporations are trying to “cut the fat”, as we’ve seen in the vast amounts of jobs lost.
Six sigma is a good alternative to lay-offs in that it allows a structure to be put in place which helps streamline processes.
By training everyone in six sigma, even at the yellow belt level (the lowest, described also as white belt) for those not actively deploying the changes, a company can benefit.
Training programs can be tailored to the company, maintaining the company motto and vision.
Corporate training is a great way to get everyone on-board at one time, rather than training at a high level only a select few who can’t, won’t or don’t know how to train the people they manage.
