Workshop to enhance knowledge
MANAGERS from various organisations went through the Lean Six Sigma training to develop their knowledge of enhancing the quality of their products and services.
According to the Lean Six Sigma director Sachin Singh, it brought creativity and ensured managers were able to do critical thinking as well.
Since the whole country is expecting to go online or paperless society he said one would need to understand project management and how to go in doing any transformation, hence Lean Six Sigma gave real tools and techniques.
“Change to anything requires proper planning and execution of a plan,” Mr Singh said.
This workshop was to enhance quality of their products and services as well as a way to measure defects through use of statistical process control and analysis.
“This is the fourth one and companies understand it better as before they used to send their managers overseas to get trained in six sigma.”
He said they started from March 2019 and there were limited seats of 10 per workshop.
According to a statement from the company the training is conducted by Mr Singh, who is internationally accredited and is aimed to enhance and upskill executives and the workforce.
He believes the sound decisionmaking by workers to be very important as everyone could train their brains to think critically and creatively.
The company stated this was why SSA started its workshops and training sessions with various brain enhancing techniques which could be practised daily in people’s daily lives.
“Lean Six Sigma training starts with white belt and moves towards black belt level for full understanding of Lean Six Sigma methodologies,” stated the company.
“SSA makes it easy to break concepts so that all the tools and techniques can be taught and applied successfully at each level.
“SSA also has organisations to give it real feedback so that it can help improve the quality of the workforce in Fiji and the South Pacific region.”
The last workshop was held on September 27 and 28 in Suva.
