WSQ Applying Statistics for Lean Six Sigma [Qualified for 18 PDUs] 


WSQ Applying Statistics for Lean Six Sigma builds measurement and analytical skills that enable more refined and sophisticated use of data. These newly acquired skills and techniques then become the "power tools" which all Lean Six Sigma Practitioners apply when charts, graphs and "descriptive" data methods fall short.

Just as important as how to apply these analytical methods, this workshop emphasizes when and why statistical tools should be applied to add value to the organisation. 


The workshop aims to fulfill the following:

• Solidify understanding of fundamental principles of data and statistical analysis
• Assess and manage data integrity, whether for projects or ongoing process metrics
• Organize/format data as needed to conduct meaningful analyses
• Identify and formulate critical questions or hypotheses to be investigated through statistical analysis and experimentation
• Teach participants a variety of valuable analytical methods, including their basic purpose and principles, when and where to use them, and how to execute the appropriate tests
