The training, a four-day intensive learning event, is intended for collision center owners and managers and teaches the practical applications of Lean Six Sigma techniques to boost quality, speed, cost performance and competitiveness at repair facilities. It will be offered Oct. 5-8 in Albuquerque, N.M., Nov. 16-20 in Eagan, Minn., and Dec. 7-10 in Los Angeles. A class Sept. 21-25 in Syracuse, N.Y., is sold out.

Jim Berkey, director, MVP Business Solutions Group, said, “Today’s performance challenge in our industry requires that collision center operators simultaneously improve quality, speed and cost. We have seen the interest in applying the Lean Six Sigma approach to collision work grow exponentially over the last few years, and we’re fortunate to have been at the forefront in successfully training our shops and working with them through implementation challenges.”

MVP Green Belt training was introduced in 2006. The program evolved from four years of extensive research and development by a team of Master Black Belt Lean Six Sigma experts and MVP collision center consultants. To date, more than 650 owners and managers from across North America have experienced the program's unique ongoing education and execution support.

“The demand for Green Belt has been growing each year, as collision center owners and managers are feeling more and more pressure to improve their business and process performance,” said Rich Altieri, senior manager, MVP Business Solutions. “They’re recognizing that a strong competitive advantage today, and in the future, lies with those shops that can deliver and differentiate on process performance. That’s where Green Belt training comes in.”

Key Green Belt training program elements include:

• Success factors that enable organizations to thrive in rapidly changing environments;
• Simulation games to learn Lean Six Sigma fundamentals and what cycle time reduction means to the collision repair processes;
• Practical application of Lean Six Sigma principles through X-Ray Repair Planning™ and fundamentals such as 5S and Workplace Organization;
• Leadership and implementation modules that address the need for everyone in an organization to participate in building stronger processes and a process improvement culture; and
• Shop tours and assignments to reinforce the understanding and confidence critical to successful implementation.

MVP Green Belt training is available to collision repair centers using PPG Automotive Refinish products. Advanced registration is required and class size is limited.

When introduced more than a decade ago, MVP Services was the first program of its kind in the collision repair industry. Since then, thousands of collision center owners and managers have taken advantage of MVP Business Solutions’ innovative services to improve the way they run their businesses. Green Belt training is part of the MVP program.
