Sponsors play a vital role in a successful six-sigma project implementation. They provide a significant support to project teams by removing various road blocks during the project cycle and ensure that the team is marching successfully towards the goal. Also they act as a bridge between the project team and organization management. Without Sponsors, 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.

This training is designed to enable you to be a successful sponsor and successfully support Six-Sigma DMAIC competence building across your organization and ensure project successfully deliver results.
