Lean Training
SIMULATIONS

You wouldn't let your team miss the last practice before the championship game.

No one wants their team to hit the field before they're ready — not without plenty of practice. The same can be said about large-scale improvement projects. Ask yourself, within your Lean Six Sigma deployment, what's your ratio of practice to performing? Practicing with simulations is a quick way to recreate the complexity and messiness of problem-solving without the risk of ineffective projects and costly mistakes in the future.

Enterprise process improvement modal to accelerate project execution includes simulations, practice based training, modeling, analytics and coaching

Increase comprehension and confidence with Simulations

More than just a collection of tools, Lean Six Sigma is a methodology — a means of critically analyzing and solving workplace problems. MoreSteam's Enterprise Process Improvement Model supports organizations working to develop an effective problem-solving culture.

An essential component of this model is training simulations. During a sim, students are given the freedom to apply tools and techniques to reinforce critical thinking and practical application of knowledge. Plus, the successful completion of a simulated project gives students the confidence they need to excel on real project work.

All MoreSteam simulations are able to be run in a conference space in-person, or virtually through a video call. Since all simulations are web-based, participants only need a computer or smart device, an internet connection, and access to a web browser to play.

Contact us if you have questions on how you can integrate simulations with your training activities or OpEx initiatives.
