 Six Sigma White Belt — —
 Intro to Six Sigma and “Lean” Thinking
 Six	 Sigma	 is	 a	 robust	 and	 powerful	 approach	 to	 creating	 significant	 improvement	 in	
 organizations.	Created	by	Motorola	in	the	mid	1980’s	and	popularized	by	GE,	AlliedSignal	
 and	others,	Six	Sigma	has	been	credited	with	billions	of	dollars	of	certified	annual	savings.
 This	Workshop	will	provide	a	high	level,	non-statistical	introduction	to	Six	Sigma.	You	will	
 be	able	to	compare	and	contrast	Six	Sigma	with	other	process	improvement	approaches	such	
 as	Total	Quality	Management	(TQM)	and	Zero-Defects	quality,	and	identify	a	selected	set	of	
 tools	and	techniques	which	support	the	Six	Sigma	methodology.
 “Lean”	thinking	is	a	different	way	of	looking	at	how	work	gets	done.	Popularized	by	James	Womack	
 and	Daniel	Jones,	Lean	Thinking	focuses	on	identifying	and	eliminating	“non-value	added	work.”
 By	the	end	of	this	session,	you	will	be	able	to:
 	 •	 Describe	what	differentiates	Lean	thinking	from	traditional	process
 	 	 improvement	thinking;
 	 •	 Experience	a	simulation	that	will	provide	an	“in	the	muscle”	experience	of
 	 	 Lean	thinking;	and
 	 •	 Understand	how	a	selected	set	of	tools	and	techniques	supports	the	Lean
 	 	 thinking	methodology.
 Methods
 This	interactive	session	will	highlight	a	combination	of	lecture,	simulation,	and	small-group	
 work	 to	 accomplish	 its	 learning	 objectives.	 PowerPoint	 slides	 will	 illustrate	 key	 points	
 throughout	 the	 session.	Additionally,	you	 will	leave	the	workshop	 with	 a	copy	 of	“The	Six	
 Sigma	Memory	Jogger	II”	-	a	Six	Sigma	tool	guide,	and	“The	Lean	Enterprise	Memory	Jogger”	
 –	a	Lean	thinking	tool	guide.

 Six Sigma Yellow Belt
 In	this	16-hour	course,	you	will	learn	about	the	philosophy	and	concepts	that	are	at	the	heart	of	the	
 Six	Sigma	approach.	A	sample	of	tools	for	each	step	of	the	DMAIC	(Define,	Measure,	Analyze,	
 Improve,	and	Control)	framework	will	be	introduced.	You	will	leave	the	training	with	a	copy	of	the

Business Analysis — — IIBA Body of KnowledgeTM
Organizations	 large	 and	 small	 depend	 on	 their	 ability	 to	 deliver	 value-oriented	 systems.	 Project	
managers	recognize	that	improved	requirements	gathering	and	analysis	are	key	deliverables.	That	
is	why	the	role	of	the	business	analyst	has	emerged	as	a	key	to	unlocking	the	potential	for	project	
success,	and	why	an	organization	–	the	International	Institute	of	Business	Analysis™	–	has	emerged	
to	raise	its	level	of	professionalism	and	recognition.	(See	www.theiiba.org)
The	business	analyst	is	the	bridge	between	those	who	have	a	business	problem	to	solve	and	those	
who	enable	IT	solutions.	The	course	is	designed	for	anyone	who	needs	a	better	understanding	of	
business	 analysis	tasks	 and	 techniques.	This	includes	project	managers,	 IT	 staff	and	 project	 team	
members.	By	taking	this	course,	you	will	learn	about	requirements	tasks,	modeling	techniques	such	
as	UML	and	context	diagrams,	documentation	templates,	validation,	testing	and	deployment,	and	
improving	communications	with	developers	and	stakeholders.
The	 course	 brings	 to	 life	 material	 in	 the	 most	 current	 Guide to the Business Analysis Body of
Knowledge™	by	the	IIBA™.	The	course	should	also	enable	qualified	business	analysts	to	apply	for	
IIBA	certification.

Faith-Based Community Development

Capacity-building	of	social	service	nonprofit	organizations	has	become	a	critical	element	in	today’s	
society,	 both	 nationally	 and	 locally.	 There	 is	 increasing	 reliance	 on	 faith-based	 organizations	 to	
provide	a	number	of	social	and	community	development	services	such	as	ensuring	access	to	child	
care,	 affordable	 housing,	 health	 care,	 and	 human	 capital	 development—particularly	 for	 those	 in	
low-to-moderate	income	groups	across	the	country.	The	learning	modules	in	this	course	focus	on	
program	planning	and	financing	capabilities	of	houses	of	worship	or	their	separately	incorporated	
nonprofit	 organizations.	 The	 class	 will	 also	 feature	 guest	 speakers	 with	 professional	 expertise	 in	
various	community	development	services.
