Six Sigma – Executive Overview


This course is designed to provide participants with an overview of the six-sigma approach to driving improvement of business processes throughout the entire organization.


Held in a workshop format, this 1 to 2-day course is designed to coach participants on how to effectively lead the implementation of an organization-wide six sigma improvement effort.

The Executive Team is comprised of the leaders that will communicate, lead and direct the company’s overall objectives towards a successful and profitable six sigma deployment. This training program curriculum includes: a six sigma program overview, examples of successful deployment and strategies, and tools and methods for deployment, improvement, measurement, and management controls.

The focus of this workshop is to enable participants to quickly identify how to implement six sigma and achieve tangible and relevant improvements in the output of processes.

Unlike typical six sigma courses that only teach statistical techniques, this workshop enables participants to learn how to actually achieve measurable gains in the output of their processes. The intent is to significantly improve quality in a customer-focused environment.

Participants will learn through lecture, class discussions, class exercises, case studies and team breakouts.

SatiStar’s experts can follow-up this training with on-site consultants to ensure that the use of the tools is applied effectively.

SatiStar's Experience Makes The Difference!

  • . . . worked extremely well with the departmental and site managers . . . goal oriented and met the objectives set within the quoted budget and ensured the results were attained for the Company.

  • The guys from SatiStar did more in one week than we were able to do in 6 months.

  • Achieving ISO registration was far less onerous than we thought, our employees really rallied to the cause. The registration effort really brought us closer together as a team, and SatiStar really came through for us when we needed them.

  • We started this process a year ago with Mickey helping us create a spaghetti map of our processes on the whiteboard, and then his team guided us through their streamlining methodology and got us to where we are today. Our processes now look nothing like the spaghetti map – and we’re much more efficient today

  • This projected cycle time reduction of over 80% annual cost savings amounting to over 3% of sales, one-time savings of roughly $10 million, and working capital reduction of roughly $30 million really have us excited!

  • An outstanding success with Motorola’s vendor audit! What made this an exceptional achievement is that it typically takes 4 to 5 attempts to pass this audit. SatiStar’s expertise made it easy to avoid all the extra attempts.
