7 qc tools refresh new videos

Updat­ed Course

Sev­en Qual­i­ty Con­trol (7QC) Tools

The Sev­en Qual­i­ty Con­trol (7 QC) Tools are an essen­tial­ set of graph­ing tech­niques that are used to iden­ti­fy and fix prob­lems that under­mine prod­uct or process qual­i­ty. The 7 QC Tools pro­vide con­tin­u­ous improve­ment prac­ti­tion­ers with a sys­tem­at­ic approach for iden­ti­fy­ing and trou­bleshoot­ing qual­i­ty issues. Learn the sev­en qual­i­ty con­trol tools and how to use them with­in your orga­ni­za­tion. *This course is an update to our exist­ing course.

Self awareness new videos

New Course

Self Aware­ness

Stud­ies show that indi­vid­u­als who are self-aware are more ful­filled and effec­tive in their per­son­al and pro­fes­sion­al lives. Self-aware­ness is the con­scious knowl­edge of 10 aspects of our­selves, includ­ing our thoughts, feel­ings and emo­tions, motives, behav­iors, and much more. Devel­op­ing self-aware­ness requires reflec­tion, obser­va­tion, and lis­ten­ing to feed­back. There are many sim­ple tech­niques we can start using to devel­op our self-aware­ness and improve rela­tion­ships, com­mu­ni­cate clear­ly, make bet­ter deci­sions, reduce stress, and more.

Adaptive leadership new videos

New Course

Adap­tive Leadership

Learn how adap­tive lead­er­ship and its var­i­ous approach­es pro­vide lead­ers with the tools and skills need­ed to lead in a vari­ety of sit­u­a­tions and rapid­ly chang­ing envi­ron­ments. This course intro­duces four foun­da­tion­al lead­er­ship styles, includ­ing direc­tive, sup­port­ive, coach­ing, and del­e­gat­ing, and explains how to use each style appro­pri­ate­ly based on dif­fer­ent sit­u­a­tions. Learn­ers will also see the impor­tance of self-aware­ness and reflec­tion in iden­ti­fy­ing their pre­ferred lead­er­ship style, as well as how to give effec­tive instruc­tions and del­e­gate tasks. The course con­cludes with best prac­tices for using adap­tive lead­er­ship, includ­ing how to avoid com­mon pit­falls and keep a clear pur­pose in mind.

Giving and receiving feedback new videos

New Lead­er­ship Course

Giv­ing and Receiv­ing Feedback

The abil­i­ty to adapt to changes, avoid risks, and make improve­ments is key to the suc­cess of both indi­vid­u­als and orga­ni­za­tions. Mak­ing such changes first requires that we notice the prob­lem, oppor­tu­ni­ty, or need. How­ev­er, when it comes to chang­ing our­selves, it’s not always easy to see things clear­ly. This is why feed­back from an exter­nal per­spec­tive is essen­tial for see­ing how our behav­iors, actions, and atti­tudes are per­ceived by oth­ers. Learn the ben­e­fits of effec­tive feed­back, best prac­tices for giv­ing and receiv­ing feed­back, and how lead­ers can pre­pare their teams for using feed­back to improve per­son­al and pro­fes­sion­al performance.

Emotional intelligence new videos

New Lead­er­ship Course

Emo­tion­al Intelligence

Emo­tion­al Intel­li­gence is an essen­tial fac­tor in the suc­cess­ful imple­men­ta­tion of con­tin­u­ous improve­ment process­es with­in orga­ni­za­tions. This course is specif­i­cal­ly designed to help pro­fes­sion­als, man­agers, and teams under­stand and har­ness the pow­er of emo­tions in the con­text of a work envi­ron­ment. By com­bin­ing the prin­ci­ples of Emo­tion­al Intel­li­gence with the method­olo­gies of con­tin­u­ous improve­ment, par­tic­i­pants will learn how to cre­ate a work­place cul­ture that encour­ages respect, adapt­abil­i­ty, col­lab­o­ra­tion, and sus­tain­able growth.

Fault tree analysis new videos

Refreshed Course

Fault Tree Analysis

Fault Tree Analy­sis is a top-down, deduc­tive approach to under­stand­ing how a series of low­er-lev­el events can result in an unde­sired event, acci­dent, or equip­ment fail­ure. This dia­gram uses a set of sym­bols to rep­re­sent for­mal log­ic and to assign prob­a­bil­i­ties. Per­form­ing Fault Tree Analy­sis helps us to under­stand how spe­cif­ic sys­tems can fail, assign risk rates, and iden­ti­fy the best ways to reduce these risks.

Time management new videos

New Lead­er­ship Course

Time Man­age­ment

Time man­age­ment is a set of prac­tices that helps us become more effi­cient, bal­ance work and life, and reduce wast­ed time. It’s a key enabler of suc­cess both in our per­son­al and pro­fes­sion­al lives. There are many proven time man­age­ment prac­tices and tech­niques, but also myths and mis­con­cep­tions that hold peo­ple back. An impor­tant part of time man­age­ment is to start with goals and pri­or­i­ties, per­form a self-assess­ment, and select one or two areas to start improv­ing. Whether we strug­gle with over­com­mit­ment, inter­rup­tions, pro­cras­ti­na­tion, emails, or oth­er time loss­es, you will learn strate­gies and tech­niques for becom­ing bet­ter at time management.

Spc new videos

New Six Sig­ma Course

Sta­tis­ti­cal Process Con­trol (SPC)

Sta­tis­ti­cal Process Con­trol, or SPC is a method to mon­i­tor, con­trol, and enhance process­es by study­ing their data over time. SPC enables con­sis­tent, pre­dictable process­es by min­i­miz­ing vari­a­tion. Learn the five steps for putting Sta­tis­ti­cal Process Con­trol in place, how to cre­ate a sam­pling plan, set sub­group sizes and sam­ple sizes, the dif­fer­ence between attribute and vari­able data, how to select the right type of Con­trol Chart for your sit­u­a­tion, and more.

8d problem solving

New Lean & Six Sig­ma Course

8D Prob­lem Solving

The 8D prob­lem-solv­ing process was estab­lished in the ear­ly 1980s by the Ford Motor Com­pa­ny with the goal of stan­dard­iz­ing and improv­ing prob­lem-solv­ing capa­bil­i­ties in their sup­ply chain. Launched under the name of Team Ori­ent­ed Prob­lem-Solv­ing Using the Eight Dis­ci­plines,” it’s com­mon­ly prac­ticed as 8D. Learn how to form teams, con­tain prob­lems, scope projects, iden­ti­fy root caus­es, imple­ment cor­rec­tive actions and pre­ven­tive mea­sures, and rec­og­nize the team’s success.

Introduction to six sigma refresh

Refreshed Six Sig­ma Course

Intro­duc­tion to Six Sig­ma (Refreshed)

Six Sig­ma is a data-dri­ven approach to improv­ing qual­i­ty and effi­cien­cy in busi­ness process­es. Six Sig­ma aims for near-per­fect per­for­mance, tar­get­ing a goal of no more than 3.4 defects per mil­lion oppor­tu­ni­ties. The method­ol­o­gy employs the frame­work of DMA­IC (Define, Mea­sure, Ana­lyze, Improve, Con­trol) for deliv­er­ing improve­ment projects. Six Sig­ma prac­ti­tion­ers use sta­tis­ti­cal tools to iden­ti­fy root caus­es of defects and inef­fi­cien­cies, enabling pre­cise solu­tions that improve out­comes, increase cus­tomer sat­is­fac­tion, and con­tribute sig­nif­i­cant­ly to orga­ni­za­tion­al cost reduc­tion and profitability.

Introduction to statistics

Refreshed Six Sig­ma Course

Intro­duc­tion to Statistics

Sta­tis­tics is the sci­ence of col­lect­ing, ana­lyz­ing, pre­sent­ing, and inter­pret­ing data. Sta­tis­tics pro­vides meth­ods for design­ing exper­i­ments, tech­niques for ana­lyz­ing data and mak­ing informed deci­sions. Learn the dif­fer­ences between descrip­tive and infer­en­tial sta­tis­tics, and how to use each. This dis­ci­pline is essen­tial for enabling pro­fes­sion­als and researchers to eval­u­ate trends, test the­o­ries, and dri­ve improve­ment and inno­va­tion in any industry.

Descriptive statistics

Six Sig­ma Course

Descrip­tive Statistics

Know­ing how to improve your process­es and work­flow depends on how well you can inter­pret the data you col­lect dur­ing your test­ing phas­es. Even if data is col­lect­ed appro­pri­ate­ly, if it is report­ed and inter­pret­ed incor­rect­ly, it will not improve your organization’s per­for­mance. To make sure that every­one on your team can cor­rect­ly read and inter­pret your data, learn more about descrip­tive sta­tis­tics and how to prop­er­ly use them in your quest to improve your organization.

Graphs and charts

Six Sig­ma Course

Graphs and Charts

When it comes to see­ing how process­es change over time, the abil­i­ty to graph data can be invalu­able, espe­cial­ly for con­tin­u­ous improve­ment prac­ti­tion­ers. They can even help empha­size dif­fer­ent attrib­ut­es of the same data. But with so many graphs out there, how do you know if you’re using the best Lean or Six Sig­ma chart for your par­tic­u­lar data set? This course will answer that ques­tion for you.
