Lean Six Sigma for Executives
Lean Six Sigma is a management philosophy used to achieve operational excellence by maximizing efficiency through change and incorporating the customer’s voice. “Lean” focuses on reduction of waste and “Six Sigma” focuses on variation. We are living in a world where things change suddenly, new products are introduced quickly, profit margins are very low, there is no place for error and continuous improvement is the norm. Consumers and clients demand and expect near-perfect quality at a very reasonable cost.
Professor Gurpreet Singh will be teaching this course that has been designed specifically for REMBA executives. Participants will learn how to use Lean Six Sigma quality, management and planning tools to achieve operational excellence in various industries including Healthcare, IT, Finance, Education, Pharmaceuticals and the public sector. In addition, they will learn how to manage change through various team dynamics and hard-hitting case studies.
At the end of the course, particpants will be eligible to get certified as a "Lean Six Sigma Green Belt Executive" after passing an exam.

Lean Six Sigma for Executives Testimonials
“I wish to express my most sincere appreciation for your investment in me. My initial thought was to increase my marketability... but you have introduced me to an entirely new worldview; with the concomitant responsibilities to share. My suspicion is acquiring the certification is the easy portion of this journey... being worthy of the certification, I think, will be the more difficult and enduring pursuit. I will deploy the best of me... to generate good returns on the investment, of your reputation, in me. Thank you and be well Professor; until next time. To the rest of the team... I wish you all great success and clarity of purpose.”
"Professor Gurpreet Singh is uniquely qualified to lead this course. He has a wonderful disposition to interact with all class members regardless of their background on the subject matter. He treats all with respect and truly values everyone’s input and contribution. He lives LSS each and every day in everything he does and that comes through in the classroom. Having been out of the REMBA for many years (REMBA 92) I was a little apprehensive about returning to the classroom with much more current REMBA rock stars. But those fears were allayed by Professor Singh with his way of making all feel comfortable. I learned so much and I can honestly say I will put this to use in everything I do - 'LSS; it’s a way of thinking.' Any REMBA alum who is serious about continuing to learn and adding skill sets to their repertoire will want to make sure they enroll in Professor Singh’s LSS class. Lastly I do indeed believe this would be a fine addition to the core REMBA curriculum."
