Lean Six Sigma Green Belt

Why AttendS:

Come and learn the breakthrough methodology that can save your company millions of dollars!
The Six Sigma methodology is a systematic application, focused on achieving significant financial results and
increasing customer satisfaction. When properly deployed on carefully selected business projects, this methodology
can lead to a significant reduction, and in many cases elimination, of defects, process waste and out-of-control
processes which translate into dramatic business gains.
This American Society for Quality (ASQ) approved Lean Six Sigma Green Belt course teaches participants the Define,
Measure, Analyze, Improve and Control (DMAIC) methodology using case studies from various industries. Participants
will learn to define improvement projects to satisfy customers and reduce variation. This 'Lean Six Sigma' training
course will teach and prepare individuals to implement the principles, practices, and techniques of 'Lean Six Sigma'.
Green belts traditionally lead process stakeholders and may be assigned specific process level improvement projects
that normally do not require the statistical rigor demonstrated by a black belt. This course is quite intense and
challenging yet satisfying in terms of the knowledge gained

Course Objectives
By the end of the course, participants will be able to:

  • Develop the Six Sigma methodology and apply its roadmap
  • Apply the principles of the Six Sigma 'DMAIC' performance improvement model
  • Examine in detail the various elements of building a complete project for improvement
  • Develop statistical hypotheses using simple statistical tools
  • Use quantifiable tools to solve problems related to an improvement project
  • Eliminate waste and defects by applying Lean and Six Sigma
  • Collect, analyze, and quantify data that enable process improvements
