Six Sigma is a business management strategy originally developed by Motorola, USA in 1986. Six Sigma seeks to improve the quality of process outputs by identifying and removing the causes of defects (errors) and minimising variability in manufacturing and business processes.
It uses a set of quality management methods, including statistical methods, and creates a special infrastructure of people within the organization (e.g. “Black Belts” and “Green Belts”) who are experts in these methods. Each Six Sigma project carried out within an organisation follows a defined sequence of steps and has quantified financial targets (cost reduction or profit increase).
Lean was originally used to describe the Toyota Production System, and is an approach used to maximise customer value whilst minimising waste. In simple terms this is creating more value for customers with fewer resources.
Who should attend?
The Lean Six Sigma Green Belt certification is suitable for anyone looking to generate business improvements in areas such as: customer satisfaction, service delivery, cost control, process performance, & new product introduction. Lean Six Sigma is a process improvement methodology. Project and change management are ineffective without process management.
The course is designed for all business professionals from a wide variety of manufacturing or service / transactional environments. You will be involved in the deployment of Business Improvement or Green Belt projects as part of your job role / function.
The course covers both Lean and the Six Sigma methodology, meaning that activities focused around the speed and quality of business processes are addressed.
You will gain your Lean Six Sigma Green Belt certification in only five days. You’ll learn:
- An in-depth understanding of Six Sigma and Lean, and hands-on application of the Green Belt tool-kit applied to real-life problems in the industry
- Insights on how to establish meaningful business metrics that align process performance with financial performance
- A detailed view of Cycle Time Reduction, Process Variation and Risk Management
- An actionable plan for identifying, scoping and chartering process improvement projects and selecting the right people to execute those projects
- Improved personal abilities to support your organization by attaining Green Belt Certification, upon successful completion of this program.
What is a Green Belt?
- Is trained in a subset of the Six Sigma and LEAN methodology and tools
- Works on small scope business improvement projects, typically as part of their job role
- Promotes and apply a common set of behaviors and practices to drive acceptance of Lean and Sigma concepts in the organization
- Can be an effective team member on a Black Belt team
Other accelerated training providers rely heavily on lecture and independent self-testing and study. Effective technical instruction must be highly varied and interactive to keep attention levels high, promote camaraderie and teamwork between the students and instructor, and solidify knowledge through hands-on learning.
