Six Sigma Champion & Mentor

This workshop class covers the skills and activities required of Six Sigma champions and mentors. It is intended for managers and senior staff who typically serve as sponsors and advisors to Six Sigma projects without typically being involved in the day-to-day execution of those projects. Project success often comes down to the level of support received from champions and mentors as Green Belt staff attempt to conduct improvement and design projects using Six Sigma tools and techniques.
