This is a program for champions who play a pivotal role in a successful Lean 6 Sigma initiative. They serve as mentors to project teams and act as a bridge between black belts and organization management. Without champions, efforts can become entangled with internal obstacles, become misaligned with core business objectives, lose focus and track of time, and may not yield expected benefits. However, champions need help to be successful. The Lean 6 Sigma Champion program provides that help by exploring basic champion roles, investigating a sustainable support infrastructure for champions and preparing champions to avoid common pitfalls and lead successful Lean 6 Sigma initiatives.
