About Lean Six Sigma Yellow Belt Online

To change the performance trajectory of an organization, we need the right people in the right support roles, paving the way for effective project work and sustaining performance gains. Lean Six Sigma (LSS) Yellow Belts provide an often-missing element of change program success: sewing performance excellence into the fabric of everyday operational management and process control.  

Featuring the same world-class curriculum as the classroom version, this online Lean Six Sigma Yellow Belt course prepares process owners and others to fully support efforts by exposing them to the concepts, constructs and vernacular from the complementary domains of Lean and Six Sigma. It also gives them skills for mapping processes and collecting data so they can assist with project identification and execution.

This 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). 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.
