Lean Six Sigma

Lean Six Sigma is the methodology that allows NGOs to raise effectiveness. The successful implementation of the Lean Six Sigma tools can allow an organization to produce more results with the same amount of resources.

Lean Six Sigma methodology is widely used by the largest international companies which appreciate the value they can receive by implementing the set of relevant tools. Tools in the Lean Six Sigma training can be applied both to the organizations and projects. These tools can increase the effectiveness of any work you do.

During the training, you will learn how to plan the inner processes of the organization and its projects in order to reach the highest quality of work. Lean Six Sigma stands for continuous improvement. The methodology shows the way even for the most successful companies to become more effective.

If you want to travel to the Netherlands, you might need a visa. Here you could determine whether you require a visa. Please tick β€œ90 days or less” in the first question. Or just email us and we will advise you.

When you apply to our programs and provide mandatory pre-payment, we provide you with a visa assistance: an official visa invitation letter, which is necessary for applying for a visa. Also, we will guide you on the visa process and consult you regarding the documents that you need to prepare for the successful visa application. We will be happy to look through the package of the documents that you will prepare for the visa application, analyse it and help you to prepare all the documents correctly. Usually, visa type required to attend our courses: Short-term business visa. But it would be better to make a double check at your local Consulate / VFS Center.

Step 1

Please go to your local Consulate / VFS website and make an appointment. Sometimes you can make an appointment only 1–2 months in advance. We recommend doing that as soon as possible and then proceed to Step 2.

Step 2

Please learn more about the list of all the required documents (typically, those documents are listed on the website of your local Consulate / VFS). This list also includes the visa invitation letter that we send. Typically, we send a visa invitation letter within 1–3 days after receiving the required pre-payment from the applicant.

Step 3

With the full list of documents and completed visa application form, you have to go to the local Consulate/VFS on the appointment day and submit them. The fee for the visa might differ depending on the country where you apply. VFS might also apply an extra charge for their services.

We strongly recommend checking all the documents before the submission and make sure you provide the correct information to the Consulate and in that case, you most probably will receive a visa without any difficulties.

If you have any questions, we would be happy to assist at any stage of your application!
