Let the projects begin! Foundation hosts “Yellow Belt” class in Frisco

The DFW Hospital Council (DFWHC) Foundation hosted an all-day Lean Six Sigma Yellow Belt class at Texas Scottish Rite Hospital for Children in Frisco on July 17. In all, 13 teams and 57 students from different hospitals in North Texas participated. Let the projects begin!

The classes provided introductions to process management and teamwork while enabling individuals to achieve objectives. Participants gather data and work together in problem solving exercises.

The event, co-hosted by 6SigmaTek, will conclude in 90 days with project presentations and a graduation ceremony.

For the past three years, the DFWHC Foundation has been hosting Lean Six Sigma classes to promote hospital patient safety. Sponsored by the Hospital Improvement Innovation Network (HIIN), the certification program provides insight into the techniques of improvement methodologies.
