Flex Your Business Muscles and Get Lean

Lean Six Sigma black belt training is available

    The Central New York Technology Development Organization’s Lean Six Sigma Black Belt Training Program offers a combination of in-depth classroom training, personal coaching, and project application to take participants' Lean Six Sigma skills to the black belt level.


    CNYTDO is a nonprofit consulting and training organization supporting manufacturing and technology businesses.


    Seats are available for the program starting Feb. 28.


    Past participants have averaged a 50 percent return on investment in the first year using this structured approach to reducing variations and solving company problems, according to TDO.


    Class members learn by doing — and from each other — in the training program.


    The program features small, highly interactive classes to maximize learning; personal coaching for all participants by TDO's certified master black belts to accelerate mastery of skills; local classes which provide a built-in network of regional black belts for ongoing networking and support; eliminates transportation and logistics expenses associated with other programs; and provides a face-to-face classroom format enhancing learning and ties among participants.


    TDO offices are located at 445 Electronics Parkway, Suite 206, Liverpool.


    The black belt program fee is $4,200/participant.


    For the schedule, agenda and to learn more, contact Scott Laundry at or call 315-425-5144.
