Lean Six Sigma Green Belt Certification

Course Overview

When we talk about getting lean it is usually regarding losing excess weight and strengthening a new body that is lighter and capable of doing more in an efficient way. The same principle applies when Lean Six Sigma methods are applied to business operations in business management strategies. Simply put, this process is all about cost reduction and increased profits. Founded by Motorola, USA in 1986, Six Sigma is a strategy that optimizes the process of outputting products and services by getting rid of errors so that results are always constant and always growing. This Lean Six Sigma Green Belt training course provides delegates with a working understanding of the Define, Measure, Analyze, Improve and Control (DMAIC) model which is the foundation of most Six Sigma projects.

The focus of Six Sigma is fundamentally about quality, customer focus and cost, whereas Lean is about cost and speed. This course blends a number of Lean concepts and tools into the Six Sigma DMAIC model. The team leaders and team members are the brains and muscle behind the Lean Six Sigma program and it is critical that they are equipped with the appropriate skills and tools to enable them to deliver current and future improvements. At the heart of 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.

This course is designed to ensure that you clear Lean Six Sigma Green Belt Certification exam in your first attempt. This training provides in-depth knowledge of all aspects within the phases of D-M-A-I-C, six sigma tools and standard principles of Lean Management with real life applications on various industry used cases.
