Lean Six Sigma Green BELT Training and Certification

Training and Certification

This Lean Six Sigma Green Belt training course provides the skills necessary to execute Lean Six Sigma projects. Whether you use the tools as part of your everyday job role or through supporting or leading projects for your organisation.

The principles learnt apply to everyone in an organisation and every process. Attendees learn the practical application and understanding of industry best practice tools and techniques which provide a solid foundation for identifying, correcting and eliminating problems. Attendees will learn skills for mapping processes and collecting data, important groundwork for continuous improvement projects to be effective.

The course follows a roadmap in discrete stages of Define, Measure, Analyse, Improve and Control (DMAIC). Each stage includes a PHASE review to ensure the correct activities have taken place before advancement to the next PHASE. Participants learn to collect and analyse process data, identify inefficiencies and problems, pinpoint the root causes of those problems and develop and select new ways to improve processes. They also obtain skills in leading teams through the process of change.
