Introduction to Lean Six Sigma Methods
This course introduces the fundamental Lean Six Sigma principles that underlay modern continuous improvement approaches for industry, government and other organizations. Lean emerged from the Japanese automotive industry, particularly Toyota, and is focused on the creation of value through the relentless elimination of waste. Six Sigma is a quality system developed at Motorola which focuses on elimination of variation from all processes. The basic principles have been applied to a wide range of organizations and sectors to improve quality, productivity, customer satisfaction, employee satisfaction, time-to-market and financial performance. This course is offered during the Independent Activities Period, which is a special 4-week term at MIT that runs from the first week of January until the end of the month.

Creating High Velocity Organizations


Using several teaching techniques (presentations, case discussions, video dramatizations, and an in-class simulation), this program emphasizes a participatory style to maximize the opportunities for “learning by doing”. The program organizes materials into thematic modules relating to the principles of building the discovery capability in an organization—smart work design, creative problem solving, continuous knowledge sharing, and developing of discovery skills among employees. Each module first demonstrates the positive impact of successful application of the key principles, and then provides examples of negative results when those principles were not applied. Each session includes facilitated small-group exercises, where participants actively apply the ideas and examples to their own specific, real-life situations. For more information, click here.

Essential Law for Executives: The MIT Advantage


The U.S. legal system and legal style are in many ways business friendly. The law can help you protect intellectual property and design an effective IP strategy, develop sound plans for new products and marketing technologies, build and retain a successful management team, and shape complicated transactions such as M&A and tailored financial products. But it is also hard-edged, complex, contentious, and poses many risks—such as disputes that cloud IP, consumer class-action litigation which can discredit a brand and impose massive damages, lawsuits by terminated or aggrieved employees, structured financial products that carry hidden risks, and heavy-handed government investigations and sanctions.
