2022 is all but here, and the game has changed. More data, bigger data, higher complexity data….

Data is being generated by our processes at a phenomenal rate. Customer data, sensors, and the internet-of-things are just some of the sources of this new data. Gone are the days of simply being able to rely on Excel or even simple statistical software. New tools and techniques are required to derive the most value from our data.

Lean Methods has designed its Data Analysis for Lean Six Sigma program to bridge the gap between traditional process improvement methods and the era of big data. No Lean Six Sigma Green Belt or Black Belt is truly complete until these new skills have been mastered. Once mastered, they open up a whole new world of possibilities that goes beyond problem-solving and into the world of future-looking insight.
