The four members of VPFO Communications & Engagement team, Chris Freek, Yvonne Kwok, Annie Mullins, and Sam Tsui have a long-demonstrated passion for learning and applying new skills. In addition to the entire team earning certification in PROSCI’s change management methodology, the team is now better equipped to help UBC achieve its process improvement goals with Lean Six Sigma Yellow Belt Certification from the UBC Sauder School of Business.
The Lean Six Sigma methodology, being implemented at UBC by the VPFO’s Operational Excellence department, is a proven approach to improving business processes and quality outcomes. It focuses on reducing variability and waste, optimizing performance, and driving customer satisfaction. The Yellow Belt, the second Lean Six Sigma certification level, equips individuals with the knowledge and skills necessary to support project teams and make meaningful changes in their organizations. It is also a stepping stone to higher levels of certification, including Green Belt and Black Belt, which require a deeper understanding of Lean Six Sigma principles and greater ability in project management.
Successful completion of Lean Six Sigma and change management certification compliments work in progress to also add IAP2’s certification in Stakeholder Engagement to the team’s advanced education in communications, marketing, journalism and online content development, among other highly specialized skills.
