Building Capabilities in Your People

To build a successful business, you need employees who understand and deliver tangible, bottom-line benefits and sustainable, process improvements. To help develop your people and ensure that you achieve results, we’ve created the most effective Open Enrollment Lean and Six Sigma training program available.

Six Sigma Academy: the originators of Six Sigma

SSA & Company was founded as the “Six Sigma Academy” in 1994 by the creators of the Six Sigma revolution at Motorola. We taught companies like GE, Allied-Signal, Ford, Dow, Toyota Financial Services and DuPont how to achieve a higher level of quality with substantially lower costs. Since then, we have developed and delivered process improvement training for more than a dozen years to tens of thousands of individuals at hundreds of companies around the globe, and we have helped them achieve billions of dollars in benefits.

Meaningful bottom-line benefits and cost-reductions that you and your CEO want to see

We have seen classroom lectures and e-learning become the accepted standard.  But these methods alone do not fully prepare students for the challenges inherent in real-life business situations.  Instead, it is the hands-on project management work that happens outside the classroom and on the company floor that is critical to the development and growth of process improvement leaders. Our Master Black Belts partner with you and provide one-on-one process improvement training and mentoring. We want our students to do more than “know the textbook”; we want them to think beyond the frameworks and understand how to achieve results.

Progressive Curriculum: the best classroom experience, less time and resources, and lower costs

Both learners and their companies have been thrilled by the results of Progressive Curriculum. Through this model, our students can easily “upgrade” their training from Green Belt to Black Belt, etc., by taking and paying for only the additional weeks of training they need to reach the new level of expertise desired. Also, students don’t have to repeat a lot of material as they move from one level to the next. Finally, because individuals pursuing Lean, Black Belt, and Master Black Belt expertise come together into a single learning environment, students have greater dialogue with each other and are exposed to a broader range of issues and project examples. This greatly enhances their practical understanding of classroom material while creating a dynamic and interactive atmosphere that is otherwise not found in Lean Six Sigma training.
