Six Sigma's step-by-step process of interventions and strong analysis techniques help businesses to identify where the root causes are, analyze, improve contributing factors and control the gains in improvements. Whether your company is large or small, whether it manufactures a product or provides a service to its customers (or a mix of both), it can benefit from the tools and techniques of Six Sigma.

Yellow Belts help in gathering data, participating in problem solving. Black Belts and Green Belts rely on Yellow Belts.
