Six Sigma is a data-driven improvement strategy that views all activities within an organization as processes. Process inputs can be controlled and adjusted to effect significant improvements in process outputs. Six Sigma uses a rigorous and systematic methodology known as DMAIC (define, measure, analyze, improve, and control) and a number of qualitative and quantitative tools. Its goal is to drive process, product, and service improvements for reducing variation and defects. Lean is also an improvement methodology, but with a different focus. It aims to enhance process flow, reduce cycle time, and eliminate waste. Though Lean and Six Sigma originated in different places and under different circumstances, they are now largely seen as complementary methodologies. Organizations across various industries are striving to become faster and more responsive to customers, achieve near-perfect quality, and operate using world-class cost structures. You need both Lean and Six Sigma to achieve these goals. This course introduces Six Sigma and Lean methodologies and looks at the relationship between them. It also explores relationships among business systems and processes using some practical examples of Lean Six Sigma applications in both manufacturing and service industries. This course is aligned with the ASQ Certified Six Sigma Black Belt certification exam and is designed to assist learners as part of their exam preparation. It builds on foundational knowledge that is taught in SkillSoft's ASQ-aligned Green Belt curriculum.

Generating creative ideas can be a very exciting and stimulating process. This is particularly true during the initial stages of idea generation, when many adopt an 'anything goes' approach. Later, however, the workability of ideas needs to be verified, or checked. Ideas are more likely to be relevant and useful when they have been assessed in the context of organizational needs, strategies, and resources. Some techniques that can help verify ideas are getting the opinions of key people and using simulations. Building on ideas continues the process of verifying ideas by helping to make those ideas more clear, relevant, and feasible. This course covers a variety of techniques used to verify and build on creative ideas. It outlines when to use research and when to use simulations to check the workability of an idea. In addition, it discusses ways to build on ideas effectively.

Typically, when people hear the term workplace harassment they think of sexual harassment. But that is just one of the many forms workplace harassment may take. Unlawful harassment is any form of unwanted or unsolicited behavior directed at an individual or group of individuals, by another associate or superior, on the basis of a protected characteristic as outlined by various anti-discrimination laws (Title VII of the Civil Rights Act, the Americans with Disabilities Act, and the Age Discrimination in Employment Act). These protected characteristics include race, color, national origin, religion, sex (including transgender status and gender identity), disability, and age. Depending on state law and other circumstances, additional characteristics such as sexual orientation and marital status may also be protected. This course will review the characteristics of various forms of harassment and discuss what supervisors and managers can do to discourage harassing behavior of any type in their own work groups by their associates or themselves.
