Lean Six Sigma

GO Productivity Training

For companies looking to go further in improving productivity and build the capacity to manage their own efficiency challenges, the Lean Six Sigma method will provide the tools to do so.

About Lean Six Sigma

Lean Six Sigma is a combination of methodologies that focus on the waste reduction principles of lean with the quality management concepts of Six Sigma.

Lean, popularized by Toyota, seeks to improve efficiency by improving workflow: no effort or time is wasted because the right things get to the right place at the right time. Developed by Motorola beginning in 1986, Six Sigma is a set of techniques that reduces product defects through improved work processes.

Lean Six Sigma began with Michael George’s 2002 book, Lean Six Sigma: Combining Six Sigma with Lean Speed.

GO Productivity’s Lean Six Sigma training programs combine the best of both methodologies and gives you the tools to improve productivity, efficiency, and profits within your organization.


“We want to thank GO Productivity for the outstanding Green Belt training provided to our group. Scott and Peter tailored the training to meet our specific needs and included project examples from our organization. This increased engagement and showed the trainees how Lean Six Sigma can not only be applied in manufacturing but also in transactional environments.

I would highly recommend GO Productivity to those wanting to help their companies achieve the next levels in their continuous improvement journey. We are already planning our second cohort!”
