Metric of Urgency Way™ Lean Six Sigma+ Certification Track: Your path to effective project leadership and execution.

The MoU Way™ Lean Six Sigma+ certification program enables organizations and individuals to learn MoU Way and Lean Six Sigma at a deep level as well as become facilitators of the MoU Way. The certification track is focused on being less academic and more hands-on, with curriculum focused on real world case studies and live mentoring sessions. You will experience dynamic and immersive sessions with MoU Lean Six Sigma Master Black Belt+ coaches that bring over 20 years of practice and knowledge to the experience.

What is the "+" in MoU Lean Six Sigma+?

Metric of Urgency was developed over the last 20 years as an improvement to traditional Lean Six Sigma (LSS). The LSS methodology is effective at driving project execution, but needed a more strategic and financial layer to prioritize important work and connect strategy from the executive level into delivery activities. The MoU approach is critical to any improvement project or team looking to drive meaningful impact in their organization.

For organizations that have a Lean Six Sigma practice yet aren't seeing the value from an LSS initiative, MoU can help. MoU gives LSS teams laser focus on things that are important and will help to drive immediate business value. It also bridges the gap between executive strategy and meaningful impact through the unique 16 MoU tools including the Executive Decision Tree. Through certification you gain knowledge and access to all MoU tools, and learn from MoU Lean Six Sigma Master Black Belts on how to deploy these techniques in your organization.

Getting started is easy. MoU Lean Six Sigma+ certification can start with as little as a 90-minute time commitment by attending one of the free public events. The introductory courses for MoU Lean Six Sigma White Belt+ and Yellow Belt+ will give you the foundational knowledge in as little as 8-16 hours of training and prepare you for the advanced-level coursework of the MoU Lean Six Sigma Green Belt+ and Black Belt+. There is also an Executive certification offered exclusively to individuals at the Executive management level.
