The error-proofing mindset

Much like the rest of Lean and Lean Six Sigma, Poka Yoke is about a mindset. In this case, a mindset of preventing errors and problems rather than solving them after they’ve already occurred. In this course you will learn what this mindset entails and how to harness it productively.

Step-by-step Poka Yoke

We’ll take you through the steps of a typical Poka Yoke implementation so that you know exactly how to apply this in your own work or daily life.

The different types of Poka Yoke

You will learn the three different categories of Poka Yoke, allowing you to classify and discern different types of error prevention categories.

Preventing is better than solving

Poka Yoke is a simple tool developed with the express purpose of helping you prevent errors. After all, why put effort into solving problems if you can prevent them from ever occurring at all? This mindset and tool is not only useful within the context of Lean Six Sigma, but will also benefit you in your daily life.

Core Lean concept

Poka Yoke is a core concept in the entirety of the Lean methodology, and integral to its underlying philosophy. Continuous Improvement would be impossible if you would keep solving the same problems without ever thinking up ways to keep them from occurring.

Ideal addition to any project or methodology

Whether it’s Lean Six Sigma, Agile or Prince2, Poka Yoke can be applied in any project or methodology. It is most useful within the context of Continuous Improvement, but can be incorporated in virtually any setting.

Developed by

This online course was designed by The Lean Six Sigma Company, an international training organisation on the subject of Lean Six Sigma, in close collaboration with Great Ormond Street Hospital. Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH) is a renowned children’s hospital in London. GOSH was founded in 1852 with only 10 beds, that has since grown to become one of the world’s leading children’s hospitals, housing the widest range of specialists under one roof.

Instructor

Michel is a GE-certified Master Black Belt with over 25 years of experience in Continuous Improvement. He has trained and coached hundreds of Lean Six Sigma professionals worldwide. He is active as director and Lead Instructor at The Lean Six Sigma Company UK.

Certification

Upon finishing this course you will be awarded with an official Basic Statistics for Six Sigma certificate of completion from The Lean Six Sigma Company.

This certification serves as proof that you know everything about Statistics that you need to know in order to participate in a Green Belt Lean Six Sigma project.
