Lean Six Sigma Green Belt

Obtain Consistent, Superior Results

Participants will be provided with a general overview of Six Sigma methodology and enhance their technical problem solving skills. Participants will take away strategies to help successfully deploy Six Sigma techniques and lead small scale improvement projects within their company.

Green Belt Training will focus on the five-phase DMAIC (Define, Measure, Analyze, Improve and Control) model. Simulation experiences are used in combination with lecture, small group breakout sessions and hands-on practice. Green Belt Certification is received upon successfully completing one process improvement project identified and approved by a manager or executive from their company. Instructors will provide consultation on projects.

When the principles and methodologies of Six Sigma are properly applied to virtually any key business process, they return positive bottom-line results. Regardless of the organization's business and mission, participants can expect to see:

  • Improved overall customer satisfaction
  • Increased productivity and added value
  • Improved capacity and output
  • Reduced total defects and cycle time
  • Increased product and service reliability
  • Decreased work-in-progress initiatives
  • Improved process flow
  • Return on investment for your training commitment

This program qualifies for up to 42 PDUs or 4.2 CEUs, based on attendance.
