Lean Six Sigma Green Belt training develops people into team leaders and problem-solvers who can regularly improve processes within their local areas and functions.

Following the disciplined Six Sigma DMAIC (Define-Measure-Analyze-Improve-Control) roadmap, this course teaches you how to collect and analyze performance data, identify inefficiencies and problems, pinpoint root causes, and institute new protocols to greatly improve processes. In addition to teaching the complementary methodologies of Lean and Six Sigma, this course also provides skills in leading teams through the process of change.

Another valuable aspect of the Lean Six Sigma (LSS) Green Belt course is the inclusion of several creative-thinking modules that can be used to dislodge a team’s thinking when members are mired in their own assumptions and familiarity with their own processes.

Most importantly, this course has a practical and applied focus. Taught by expert instructors with real-world experience, this course features interactive lectures, group exercises, process and tool simulations, individual exercises and the application of learning to a real improvement project in the workplace.

Through mentoring and coaching, instructors provide direct and focused support so participants can successfully pass their final exam and complete their project to gain Green Belt certification.
