GO Productivity delivered the first Calgary session of the company’s new Lean Six Sigma White Belt workshop on the morning of June 29.
With a dozen participants convening in the training room at the Calgary Chamber of Commerce, the half-day workshop educated, entertained, and inspired participants.
GO Productivity delivered the workshop to participants from leading businesses in Calgary and area, representing companies in energy and energy services, manufacturing, financial services, technology, and agriculture.
The White Belt workshop is a perfect introduction to Lean Six Sigma and operational productivity improvements. It’s great to see people from a variety of companies, at varying levels in their businesses come together so quickly and experience how impactful productivity improvements can be.
“Getting people from different organizations to work together as a team in the workshop helps demonstrate the value of having a variety of experience and skills at the table when improvements are offered and tried”, said Erickson.
What’s White Belt all about?
Formerly known as the Operational Productivity Improvement Workshop, the Lean Six Sigma White Belt is now better integrated with GO Productivity’s full spectrum of Lean Six Sigma training, offering sessions for all levels and teams in a company.
GO Productivity’s Lean Six Sigma White Belt is a four-hour workshop that familiarizes teams or work groups with the principles behind productivity improvement, Lean Six Sigma, and gives them a base from which to move forward as they increase efficiency across every part of the operation.
Lean Six Sigma White Belt is a workshop in which everyone in the company, from front line staff to senior executives, can participate, learn, and gain skills to start improving productivity almost immediately.
White Belt is geared toward progressive mid-size businesses looking to learn more about Lean Six Sigma and looking to prepare their teams for change.
