About Lean Six Sigma Green Belt Online

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. Based on the same world-class curriculum as the classroom version, the Lean Six Sigma (LSS) Green Belt Online course is delivered through an interactive, HTML-based eLearning system, offering accessibility and ease of use across both desktop and mobile devices (closed captioning is available).

This course follows the disciplined Six Sigma DMAIC (Define-Measure-Analyze-Improve-Control) roadmap, providing a framework 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 covers skills in leading teams through the process of change and in applying creative-thinking techniques to reach out-of-the-box solutions.

Courses are complete with engaging visual content and animated modules, as well as activities and real-world case studies. Students master the learning modules at their own pace and in their own time.

Featuring a practical and applied focus, this online course includes training, quizzes and exams.
