Process improvement isn't just about saving money or getting things accomplished more efficiently - it's about creating a culture and organizational strategies based on effective use of your resources in order to meet the needs of your customers. Our Lean Six Sigma Green Belt (Accelerated) course will help you build an ecosystem of staff members with the skills to make this happen.
The Role of a Lean Six Sigma Green Belt
Green Belts are professionals fully-versed in the DMAIC problem-solving methodology and other process improvement principles. They typically work on teams to complete formal process improvement projects (often under direction of a Black Belt) but are also continuously evaluating processes and implementing small-scale improvement independently. Having a critical mass of Green Belts in your organizations keeps a critical eye on the work at all times, allowing you to catch problems before they balloon.
Our Lean Six Sigma Green Belt course is an accelerated, hyper-practical approach to process improvement that is ideal for organizations. Over 40 hours of training, participants learn the core principles of Lean, Six Sigma, and the DMAIC problem-solving methodology and work in teams to apply them to an actual improvement project in their workplace. The course focuses primarily on non-statistical techniques for continuous improvement such as process definition, process flow diagrams, data collection techniques, measurement techniques, causes of process variation, pareto diagrams, histograms, cause and effect diagrams, control charts and process capability analysis. (Statistical analysis and methods are covered in greater depth in the Lean Six Sigma Black Belt).
Unlike many certification courses that only prepare participants to take an exam, our interactive classroom experience emphasizes strategic thinking, flexibility, teamwork, and communication skills. All of our Lean Six Sigma courses take a people-centered approach that encourages participants to consider the culture of their organization and the needs of all people involved, rather than a strict approach that prioritizes efficiency and savings above all. Participants even practice research and presentation skills through required "teachbacks."
