Lean Six Sigma Green Belt Certification
October 23, 2018 @ 7:30 am - 4:00 pm EDT
Lean Six Sigma Green Belt Certification is a level of mastery for the Six Sigma methodology— a disciplined, data-driven approach for eliminating defects in any process.
In our Lean Six Sigma Green Belt Certification training, you will learn to how to fix problems permanently by using the Six Sigma DMAIC methodology. This training enables the individual to become data/process driven and team-oriented which helps them become more effective in working on, leading, and supporting Lean Six Sigma project objectives linked to an organization’s profit and strategic objectives.
Lean Six Sigma Green Belt Certification participants will learn to apply lean tools to reduce and eliminate wastes, and the DMAIC methodology to reduce process variations and defects to achieve quantifiable bottom-line business improvement by working on a certification project during training. Typically, Green Belt projects spin off at least $25,000 to $50,000 in cost savings in process improvement. Project coaching will be provided specific to a process improvement project that the participant brings to the course; one-on-one project review and coaching by the Master Black Belt.
The training will begin with a pre-training conference call to align the trainees to collecting baseline data and to develop the project charter by engaging the project champion and developing the process map or value stream map of the current process as-is. This will be followed by face-to-face training in three sessions, over a period of three months. In the four weeks between sessions, you will apply the principles and techniques you have learned to your improvement projects.
