Leap Technologies Establishes New Training Programs

Published: Monday, April 19, 2004 - 22:00

Leap Technologies has released three new training programs for improving Six Sigma results.

The latest additions to Leap’s repertoire come on the heels of more than three years of research and testing with Six Sigma organizations, including Cott Beverages, IMC Global, Standard Register and Vytra Health Plans.

The suite of programs provides deployment leaders with a cost-effective way to equip their Six Sigma practitioners to cut project cycle times in half and improve productivity. Each program provides an interactive tool kit for conducting project meetings that get people engaged and motivated to do the work required for successful Six Sigma implementation.

The three-program curriculum includes Rapid Project Planning, Breakthrough Project Tools and Action Team Tools. Rapid Project Planning is a one-day program for Master Black Belts and Black Belts. Breakthrough Project Tools is a three-day program focused on a DMAIC-based approach to rapid core-process redesign. The final course, Action Team Tools, lasts two days and teaches core skills for leading teams in rapid solution implementation and quick-win capture. The program is designed to increase productivity for both Black and Green Belts and can serve as a platform for launching a Yellow Belt Program.

Leap Technologies is an international change management consulting firm specializing in the design and integration of change acceleration tools into business improvement efforts. For more information about Leap Technologies and its change-acceleration tools for Six Sigma, click here.
