Lean Six Sigma For Students: College / High School

A student’s customer is an employer. Most people go to college so they can eventually sell their services, based on the skills and knowledge they obtained in college, in exchange for a salary from an employer. Or, in layman’s terms, “get a job.”
Most students do not have a build, measure, learn feedback loop. They have a build it and see if they will come approach. They often go to college for four years without ever spending time validating that they are learning something that actually has value to their customers (potential employer).
Without getting feedback from an employer, a student has no idea whether or not he/she is spending time and money learning something that is actually of value to employers. They do not know if the skills they are learning will actually get them a job, let alone one with a salary sufficient enough to pay of the loans they obtained to learn those skills in the first place.

By learning in a team environment, you will be better prepared to work with Green Belts and Black Belts back at your company.
