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. Creating a true culture of process improvement requires understanding and buy-in from everyone in the organization. Our Lean Six Sigma White Belt workshop is a time- and cost-effective tool for advancing your process improvement initiative.
The Role of a Lean Six Sigma White Belt
Unlike Green Belts and Black Belts, a White Belt may participate infrequently in formal process improvement projects. That doesn't make them any less vital, though.
White Belts are often the owners or other embedded parties in the processes being evaluated by Green Belts and Black Belts. They provide important information about how the process works, the voice of the customer, and the potential success of various solutions. They are also the staff who will ensure improvements are sustained. White Belts need to understand the terminology and concepts behind the tools at play but may not necessarily need to master them all.
Having a critical mass of White Belts in your organizations ensures that everyone is speaking the same process improvement "language," as well as understands the philosphy behind your efforts.
The Lean Six Sigma White Belt workshop is only available to organizations by contract. It can be delivered as a standalone workshop or as a precursor to Lean Six Sigma Green Belt.
Our Lean Six Sigma White Belt course is six-hour introduction to Lean, Six Sigma, and continuous improvement principles in a variety of settings. The focus is on developing an understanding of the DMAIC methodology at a high level and awareness of the most common tools used in process improvement (voice of the customer, count sheets, control charts, kanban boards, etc.). Our approach emphasizes the importance of strategic thinking, flexibility, teamwork, and communication skills to the success of process improvement efforts. The interactive classroom experience encourages participants to draw connections between the content and their experience.
