Lean Six Sigma at NEOMED

Lean Six Sigma Certification Programs

Lean six Sigma Certification PROGRAM OVERVIEW

Northeast Ohio Medical University (NEOMED) is focused on implementing Lean Six Sigma principles as a means of achieving operational excellence. NEOMED’s training model is based on the Lean Six Sigma principle of Gemba. Gemba is a Japanese word that means going to the place where the actual work is done, where the value is created.

NEOMED currently offers Yellow Belt and Green Belt certification programs for its faculty, staff, students and clinical partners. Attendees are encouraged to attend a training class as part of a project team with colleagues from their department or across departments that work closely together. Individual participants are also welcome. Successful completion of NEOMED’s Yellow Belt program is a prerequisite for the Green Belt program.

At the start of the program, participants identify an improvement idea that directly impacts their work area. The Lean Six Sigma concepts and tools are then applied using the project team’s selected improvement idea.
