Introduction

In an increasingly competitive world, the importance of quality management has become paramount. That is why plant managers, general managers, project managers and other senior-level employees undergo a six sigma overview training programme.

The six sigma overview course is taught in several online platforms (typically 30-40 lecture hours) as well as workshops (2-3 days). The American Society for Quality, Chartered Quality Institute (CQI), and the Institute of Industrial and Systems Engineers (IISE) are the three leading certifying organisations for the six sigma overview programme, while several universities across the world offer specific certification courses. Aspiring candidates need to complete an industrial project as part of the six sigma overview training, and current managers can learn while they earn from their regular job.

Clearing all the levels of the six sigma overview training will pave the way for a highly lucrative career path since every industry values candidates with this qualification.
