This training provides an executive leader overview for applying Lean Six Sigma (LSS) in public-education. It prepares superintendents and executive leaders to use LSS process improvements to drive efficiency in school system administrative departments.
By the end of the course attendee will have a detailed understanding of:
- How operational and organizational waste in processes (e.g. communicating with stakeholders, hiring staff, purchasing supplies, maintaining facilities, transporting students, acquiring technology, etc.) increase the cost of serving school system stakeholders.
- How to use Process Improvement and Performance Management approaches (i.e., Lean Six Sigma) to identify root causes of stakeholder dissatisfaction and reduce/eliminate the operational and organizational waste that cost your school system valuable resources.
- How to select and set-up key process metrics and how to use those metrics to drive fiscal sustainability and academic performance.
- How to use LSS data collection and analysis tools (e.g. frequency charts/check sheets, pareto charts, histograms) to make informed decisions and address real, documented problems
- What pitfalls to avoid when implementing process improvement techniques (i.e., how to transition from current processes to improved processes without creating choke points).
