Lean Six Sigma Green Belt Certification

Hands on Minitab projects show how to reduce Defects, Variation and Streamline your process, be Six Sigma Certified without prior knowledge of Statistics

Overview

During training real life examples are used to help students use many of the Six Sigma problem-solving methods and statistical tools to contribute to the success of their organization. Objective of the course is to help Students in learning to apply statistical methods for business process improvements like:

  • Selecting successful Six Sigma projects and project teams
  • Applying the DMAIC improvement process
  • Selecting the right statistical tools
  • Integrating with Lean Manufacturing,TOC & other improvement methods, if required
  • Planning and executing projects
  • Significantly increasing profitability through Six Sigma projects
  • Communicating improvements across the organization
Who Should Attend?

Six Sigma problem solving approach is broad based in its application and includes healthcare, finance, manufacturing, government, or any other type of service or product based industry. Six Sigma Green Belt Training is ideal for anyone looking to get the most out of their career. The Six Sigma Green Belt practitioners that spend approximately one fourth of their time on Six Sigma projects of their own or in support of Black Belt projects. Six Sigma Green belt has two primary tasks: first, to help successfully deploy Six Sigma techniques, and second, to lead small-scale improvement projects within their respective areas.
