Do you struggle to see your training investment being translated into tangible results? Is it difficult for your workforce to combine knowledge-building within their day-to-day jobs?
More than ever, companies need to engage and upskill their workforce, while meeting challenging objectives. But Lean Six Sigma (LSS) training is usually costly, time consuming, theoretical and not easily applicable in day-to-day operations. Getting a quick return seems impossible. How can you set up an effective training programme that engages your employees and, crucially, delivers results?
PwC can help you set up a unique people and results oriented programme based on three pillars.
Our blended learning approach combines e-learning and hands-on classroom training with individual coaching on LSS certification projects. The combination of these elements is used to fully engage participants with the focus on delivering results.
Afterwards, the PwC certification board, consisting of black belts (GB) or Master black belts (BB) and the project coach, will evaluate the project and decide on the certification.
We also set up train-the-trainer programmes for green and black belts, so internal resources can pick up internal coaching and training along the way (See one - Do one - Lead one). This way, the centre of gravity of the training programme lies within your company and sustainable continuous improvement culture is guaranteed.

The Flemish Region offers support for training through the SME Wallet. For those eligible, subsidies can be obtained when purchasing services provided by a registered service provider such as PwC.
Even though we are the global leader in advanced piping systems, until recently we did not have a real Continuous Improvement (CI) culture in place. That is why we asked PwC to support us in upskilling our workforce across 14 plants in Europe with the aim of setting up a true CI community.
The partnership with PwC has been successful because of the blended learning approach, their local presence and the value delivered.
As a company that has been in the field for over 120 years, we have a lot of knowledge and an experienced workforce. However, we were lacking a standard way of working and were looking to implement an Arvesta way of working. Our goal was to build a data driven, performance oriented culture, and the PwC green belt blended learning programme was the perfect match to support this ambition.
-Karin van Roy, Chief HR Officer
The programme has been a success in several ways:
The flexibility ensures that participants can learn at their own pace while being supported by experienced coaches to reach targets on the selected projects.
The project and coaching aspect of the blended learning translates into immediate application of LSS and the DMAIC framework. Consequently, participants can witness the value these LSS projects bring. This has been important, because we no longer have to push our employees to gain LSS certification as they themselves are now putting themselves forward.
As a result of the green belt programme, people are using the same language and engaging in fact based discussions. Consequently, we are now chasing the right things and making a real impact!
