Since you’re reading this, you probably already know a little about Lean Six Sigma. You might even have an idea about how six sigma training can help a business or organization to become more efficient and save a lot of money. But do you know what that training does for the individual who completes it?

Consider Maya Gowri’s story. According to an article from U-T San Diego, Gowri was born in India and moved to the U.S. in 1993. She obtained her MBA from UC Irvine and her PhD from the University of Kentucky. In 2011, she pursued her Lean Six Sigma black belt. Last year, with a background in marketing and sales and having never been involved with manufacturing or production before, Gowri was hired on a full-time basis as the operational excellence leader at Inova Diagnostics.

Inova Diagnostics is a San Diego-based firm that provides invitro-diagnostic systems for clinical immunology labs and hospitals worldwide, the article noted. Without the manufacturing or production experience, Gowri — who was previously a senior improvement analyst for a medical center — relied on the lessons learned in her Lean Six Sigma courses to help her learn the ropes of her new job. She describes her career and the things she learns from it in much the same way others describe Lean Six Sigma: It’s a constant process of improvement.

If you’re looking to get further in your job or even, as Gowri did, embark on a whole new career, Lean Six Sigma training can help.
