Overview

At the heart of Lean Six Sigma improvement and redesign activities are project teams. These teams will consist of people who want to use their knowledge and skills to improve the performance of processes and the business. Lean Six Sigma Green Belt training is focused on team members understanding and applying the Define Measure Analyse Improve and Control model which is the foundation of all Lean Six Sigma projects. The focus of Six Sigma is fundamentally about quality, customer focus and cost, where as Lean is about value, cost and speed. This course blends a number of Lean concepts and tools into the Six Sigma DMAIC model, it has a stronger focus on process rather data analysis. The team leaders and team members are the brains and muscle behind the Lean Six Sigma programme it is critical that they are equipped with the appropriate skills and tools to enable them to deliver current and future improvements

There is not an exam taken during this course. Delegates would sit the Lean Six Sigma Practitioner Green Belt exam on the final day of the Lean Six Sigma Practitioner Green Belt Part 2 course

Audience

Managers, internal consultants, change agents, project managers, team leaders and team members who will be involved in leading Lean Six Sigma projects. Ideally delegates will have an awareness of Lean and Six Sigma; this is not a mandatory requirement as critical elements are covered at the beginning of the course. Ideally delegates should have a project identified to undertake following completion of the training course

Thinking about Onsite?

If you need training for 3 or more people, you should ask us about onsite training. Putting aside the obvious location benefit, content can be customised to better meet your business objectives and more can be covered than in a public classroom. It's a cost effective option.
