Conquering the Improve Phase through Human-Centered Design
Have you ever struggled in a lean six sigma (LSS) project to develop workable solutions or getting your team to agree on which ones to execute?

Through hands-on exercises, we will learn effective supplements to LSS, particularly focusing on LUMA Institute’s Human-Centered Design methodology. These techniques can help teams at all experience levels generate better ideas and select solutions more effectively.
