The City Council requested a proposal from Ember to deliver Lean Six Sigma Yellow Belt Plus Training for 30 delegates at their offices in Westminster.  The WCC attendees would receive a practical introduction to Lean Six Sigma and many of the tools and techniques within the methodology. The objective was to equip them with a practical understanding of the Lean Six Sigma tool-set that they could start to apply immediately.  This was thought essential for the next phase of the council's Digital Transformation Programme.

How we helped:

ERR commissioned out qualified partner consultants to deliver a Core module of 2 days. The Core module would be followed by a Consolidation day, to be delivered 6-8 weeks later.
The format for this day would be agreed through discussion with course attendees; with a focus on refreshing/expanding upon the practical use of the methodology following the participants’ early experiences of using it.

The Solution:

The training days were held in the council's temporary office in London and were attended by groups of 10 - 13 colleagues on each session.

The Results:

This programme was well received by all the delegates. The group found the coaching sessions to be useful and the presentation and examples were taken on-board.
The group found the structure and clarity of the content of their course valuable and extremely positive, and engaged fully in the delivery of the programme.
One delegate commented: "Presentation and facilitation were good. The key principals were explained clearly and there are some things I can apply to current/future projects at WCC. Especially important for me was to understand Lean Six Sigma terminology".
