Lean Six Sigma is a management methodology that aims to increase quality, performance and customer satisfaction with lower costs. Its two main focusses are the systematic elimination of waste from every process in the company and only keeping activities that are of value to the customer. Although Lean Six Sigma was created in Toyota, Motorola and GE, its methodology is commonly used in the service sector as well. Throughout our practical courses, you will understand what a Lean way of working looks like and what Lean thinking is all about; you will look for innovative solutions for your real business case study, and you will get a set of PwC project templates used by PwC consultants when they are working on innovation projects. After completing the course, you will receive an internationally recognized certification that confirms your skills in Lean Six Sigma and enhances your managerial competencies.

I chose this training with a high expectation that it would systematise my previous knowledge and form awareness. The lecturer's style and the training material captivated me. As an operational leader, one of the most important things is learning the lean approach, which we must not only learn, but also practice, develop and use on a daily basis.
This training led me on this path of "continuous improvement" and keeps me on it, as I am constantly drawing on the knowledge I gained at that time. I look back on the methods I learned several times and start projects with the help of what I have learned even to this day. I am grateful to be a part of this training with PwC and look forward to taking it to the next level with Black Belt.

You can resit the exam twice. In very exceptional cases, when the participants fail even after the second attempt, it is possible to purchase additional attempts.
You do not have to deliver a project for the Yellow-Belt course. During the Green-Belt course, you work on a project in your company and our consultants help you with it. At the end of the course, you present your project, and it is not necessary to implement and evaluate all the proposed changes from the project before you finish the course.
In case of the Black-Belt course, you work on your project during the course and use the help of our consultants. To obtain certification, the project needs to be implemented and its results quantified and quantified. You have one year after the end of the course to implement and evaluate the project.

All courses are available in either an online or face-to-face format, both in Czech and English. Black-Belt courses are held only in English; however, in case of tailor-made courses, it is possible to organise them in Czech as well.
The main advantage of the online course is that you can participate in this course from anywhere, and you can even invite your colleagues from other countries to join the course without the need to travel. It's not only a lecture session; even in an online course, you cooperate most of the time in a team, you try out different methods and work on case studies or work directly on a project under the guidance of a lecturer.
If you prefer a face-to-face course (instead of an online course), this option is definitely also available.
The Yellow-Belt course contains two training days, the Green Belt six days and the Black belt 10 days. For open courses, the days are always in two-day blocks (Thursday-Friday) with an interval of 2-3 weeks. With the online course, the course always takes place one day a week, for example, Green Belt takes place every Wednesday for six weeks.

During a Green-Belt course, our goal is to teach you how to understand data and perform basic analysis in Excel so that you can make decisions based on data.
We use the tools available to participants; there is no need to purchase additional software licenses. To map the process, participants can use, for example, Visio, Lucidchart, Diagrams.net or Excel or Powerpoint (Excel for data analysis). It is possible to try basic versions of other tools, such as Celonis for process mining, or PowerAutomate, UIPath community edition and others.
We do not work with Minitab in our courses. Minitab is specialised software used mainly in the area of production quality. A single-user license costs thousands of euros and its use in the non-production area is very limited. We will teach you how to perform all the necessary data analyses in Excel. During a Black-Belt course, those interested can try data analysis in Python.
