Course Overview

This two-week course provides a firm comprehension of the Lean Six Sigma Green Belt roles and responsibilities as well as the statistical and soft skills needed to wisely implement Lean Six Sigma tools. Participants learn methods that focus on executing the correct activities at the correct time to positively impact the company's bottom line and customer satisfaction. With a focus on developing project execution and change management initiatives, Lean Six Sigma Green Belt candidates learn to apply practical statistical and non-statistical concepts through case studies, hands-on exercises, homework assignments, and follow-up assigned projects.

Upon completion of the course and an initial DMAIC project with coaching from the instructor, participants will be able to manage and lead improvement projects within their current business organization. Participants will also receive certification after successfully completing their project report, which will illustrate the learning objectives mastered in the course. Whether an improvement project is Lean focused, blended Lean and Six Sigma focused, or purely Six Sigma focused, our comprehensive learning model will give participants the skills they need to lead successfully.
