Lean Six Sigma Myths
Myth #1: Lean Six Sigma training takes 5-20 days; longer training = better training.
- Truth: A five-day training suffers from a core Lean problem: overproduction - too much information. 90% of training is lost after 3 days if it isn't used immediately. By the Monday following a week-long training, you've lost most of it.
- Truth: Too many methods and tools leads to confusion. The "Magnificent Seven" methods and tools will solve 99% of business problems involving delay, defects and deviation.
Myth #2: People learn best from fictional, hypothetical case studies.
- Truth: People learn best from working on their own data and improvement projects. When you've got "skin in the game" you tend to pay attention.
Myth #3: You have to be a statistician to do Six Sigma. You have to know how to calculate all of the formulas and draw all of the charts by hand.
- Truth: You will need Six Sigma software to do Six Sigma, but you don't need to know the math, formulas or statistics. You only need to know how to interpret the charts, graphs and results of analysis.
Myth #4: Six Sigma software is complex and hard to learn.
- Truth: Six Sigma software is complex because it's designed that way. Most Six Sigma software was written using a fill-in-a-form "before mouse" interface. QI Macros was written with a point-and-click, "after mouse" interface that's easy to use.
Myth #5: Lean Six Sigma is hard to learn and apply.
- Truth: Lean Six Sigma is easy. Changing people and culture to adopt or adapt Lean Six Sigma is hard.
If there's one word Jay hears from his clients about his Lean Six Sigma training it's this: PRACTICAL

How can Jay do in a day what others do in five or ten?
Jay is a master practitioner of neuro-linguistic programming (NLP). He understands that people are the biggest roadblock to implementing Lean Six Sigma. Not the methods nor the tools. He doesn't just teach the methods and tools; he teaches the mindset needed for Lean Six Sigma.
You don't need to be a Black Belt in statistical methods to start making big gains. You only need a few key methods and tools and lots of improvements to achieve 5-sigma. By the time you get up to 5-sigma, you'll have pocketed enough money to send anyone you want to Black Belt training. And you'll know who has the aptitude for it.
And we tailor our training to your company's data and needs, because you learn better when it's relevant to your job. Jay gathers data before the class and develops improvement stories for immediate analysis. Jay even likes to develop improvement stories right in the classroom so that you'll be ready to start solving problems and implementing solutions immediately.
Ongoing Support: Jay wants you to succeed, so he provides 90 days of email, phone and webinar support for attendees.
Certification: Participants receive a Yellow Belt Certificate. Participants can refresh their learning at www.lssyb.com.
What People Are Saying...
After we send people to four weeks of Black Belt training, I give them a copy of Jay's Small Business Guerrilla Guide to Six Sigma. I tell them it's a practical way to apply Six Sigma. My copy is dog-eared and highlighted with notes in the margins.
