Lean Six Sigma Curriculum For North Carolina High School Students
Despite Lean Six Sigma being for companies and being professionals the ones that tend to get trained in it to obtain benefits, high school students can also gain some from it, starting with the value they will be adding to their curriculums. High school students have a long way to go when you consider the fact that not all of them go to college and for those that do, it is still difficult to keep up with all the skills to be developed and the responsibilities that come from it.
Therefore, being properly prepared for the future is what students should aim for but since they are also limited to what parents and schools do, it is crucial to provide them with enough tools. Here is when Lean 6 Sigma plays an important role in allowing them to have more credits for graduation and college applications, alternatives for a professional career, and skills that are valuable and useful for their goals and needs.
Six Sigma is a process improvement methodology that helps companies to achieve this goal by reducing waste, eliminating variations, identifying and solving problems, and working for the customer. But for it to be implemented, an expert needs to be properly trained and prepared for it, which is why courses in the methodology help to develop great skills and confidence in the person’s capabilities. When you take this to high school students, they are able to develop leadership skills, know how to identify and find solutions for the problems either in a company or their lives, and know-how to make wise decisions.
But what does a high school needs to do to allow its students to access this opportunity? Find the right experts and company that offers the service. Not many companies in the state are able to provide it since this Lean Six Sigma training is not the same as the regular one. During the usual courses, people not only learn but also gain experience in the methodology by working close to a company which is not possible for students and therefore, they will be missing the experience in it.
This means special training needs to be created in order to cover this missing part and ensure students will be almost as prepared as regular experts until they are able to work with the methodology or put their skills to good use. At Lean Six Sigma Experts of North Carolina, we are one of the few companies in the state that is able to offer this service and allow students to add this great value to their curriculums. We have made sure to include two options for their training:
- The yellow belt focuses on the basics, terminology, data collecting, and the essentials for personal growth and work involving them alone.
- The green belt to move onto how Lean 6 Sigma works and help them work with team-based solutions and responsibilities in the future and even during school.
What Do Students Learn During Six Sigma Training?
Mentioning the basics and skills to be developed is very general considering that the methodology involves many topics and elements. However, what we can tell you in advance is that everything they will learn is worth the time and effort. It is easy to determine part of the knowledge they will obtain by going over the yellow and green belts of Lean 6 Sigma we just mentioned along with some topics. But many others are included and it will be noticed when having a look at the outline of the training option.
What we do want to mention before anything else is the fact that our training is focused on their growth more than the methodology itself. Let’s put it in this way. They will learn what the yellow and green belt include and teach, but we have made sure to focus on how they will grow thanks to it. In other words, we want to make sure they are able to use the knowledge for more than just Six Sigma and its implementation. This is why other objectives will be achieved when they get access to our courses:
- Discipline and organization.
- Know how to measure processes and projects.
- Build confidence in their capabilities and abilities.
- Understand how a team works in any industry.
- Basic knowledge about performance, production, and processes.
- Learn of other process improvement methodologies to understand Six Sigma better and make use of all the skills developed during the training in future projects and activities.
With that said, we can go over the outline of each one of the belts for you to have a better idea of all the topics related and non-related to Six Sigma our experts will approach during students’ training:
Yellow belt training:
- LSS objectives.
- What is Lean and Six Sigma.
Green belt training:
- Value stream map.
- Mistake proofing.
- Change management.
- Quality management.
- Six Sigma tools.
