This Certificate brings together what all individuals, leaders, and managers – whether in healthcare, private industry, or government- need to understand in modern work to be effective contributors, and specifically focuses on the interconnection of technology and leading people. By developing a deep understanding of how organizations and people build innovation, physical product and human connections, students can gain immediate and long-term development opportunities.

After reviewing the overlapping areas of technology and society, students will study cases of innovation through the Design-For-Lean-Six-Sigma lens making real-world understanding of Lean & Six Sigma possible. The certificate program consistently invites students to think about how communication as technology should be adjusted and shaped as a leader or manager works with virtual teams, in-house teams, vendors, and partners. Students completing this five-course certificate will have developed an awareness of manufacturing processes, management and may consider the experience a way to enhance a current role at work or prepare for promotion within an organization or even build upon the certificate by entering the Technology, Leadership & Management Degree program.
