Six Sigma Green Belt

Course Overview

Lean is a word that refers to losing excess weight and strengthening the body in order to make the body capable of doing multiple tasks in efficient manner. The same principle is implemented when the methods of Lean Six Sigma are applied to any business operation. In simpler words, Lean Six Sigma increases the profits and effectively reduces the cost. 

Lean Six Sigma was founded by Motorola in 1986. It is a strategy which optimizes the output process of products and services, and helps to get rid of all sorts of errors so that derived results are constant and growing.

The training of Lean Six Sigma Belt enables participants to carry out how to define, measure, analyze, improve and control (DMAIC) model which is considered as the foundation of the projects of Six Sigma.

The main focus of Six Sigma is on quality, targeted customers and the cost associated with it whereas Lean is all about speed. This course primarily blends different techniques and concepts of Lean into Six Sigma DMAIC model. The main force behind the concept of Lean Six Sigma is the leaders of the team and its members. Therefore, it is necessary that they are equipped with the skills which will enable them to improve productivity at their workplace.

Course Objectives

After this Lean Six Sigma Green Belt training course, participants will be able to:

  • Apply the model of Six Sigma DMAIC performance
  • Establish “Customer Voice” for defining the performance standard
  • Use tools and different approaches for establishing performance
  • Use analysis tools for establishing problem root cause
  • Understand the tools and concepts of Lean and how they can be applied to drive the improvements
  • Establish the controls process and structures the process of governance
  • Recognize the difference between the techniques and approaches for the increment, redesign improvement strategies, and know the correct approach
