About this Course
Lean Six Sigma is a management approach to business performance improvement that has blended the two individual specialisms of Lean and Six Sigma.
The focus of Lean is about speed, efficiency and taking waste out of a process. Six Sigma focuses on effectiveness and removal of errors. When combined and implemented properly it can be a powerful management tool that can greatly improve an organisation’s performance, by providing a structured approach to resolving problems. Lean Six Sigma can help you to bring about rapid improvements, whether in a manufacturing or service-based context.
A Lean Six Sigma Green Belt can eliminate waste and improve the performance of any business process. This course has been designed to provide participants with a thorough knowledge of the Lean and Six Sigma (LSS) methodologies, tools and principles.
The purpose of the Green Belt qualification is to confirm that a participant has sufficient knowledge and understanding of the Lean Six Sigma process improvement methodology and practice to be able to achieve significant improvements in performance and quality, either working as a team member in a large project or working alone as a junior project manager.
Participants will gain the skills to:
- Analyse their organisation’s processes to identify the priority issues leading to waste and inefficiency
- Deeply investigate and understand the systemic root causes for these issues
- Understand what process improvement tools are available and how to best apply them to eliminate the source of the problem and drive customer value
Effective Green Belts are capable of implementing significant change within their organisation. Participants will also learn how to manage people through change, how to lead an improvement project team, and how to engage with enterprise leadership.
The Continuous Improvement Maturity Model will be introduced which charts the necessary changes organisations need to make, to move towards World Class Operational performance (Structured > Managed > Predictable > Capable > World Class).
Who is this course for?
Mid to senior level professionals who are working in a role that involves the review and improvement of a process and its performance.
Those looking to lead business improvement projects, drive productivity initiatives or other measurable business outcomes.

The content covered in this course is similar to the content covered in the Yellow Belt course. However, whereas the Yellow Belt covers the basics and provides an overall view of LSS, the Green Belt delves further into the theory and calculations involved, whilst also exploring how to develop reliable, innovative products that meet customer expectations.
How this course is delivered
Trainers of this course will use a practical delivery approach to provide participants with a ‘hands-on’, multi-faceted and challenging learning experience. This includes a combination of pre-reading, classroom training, practical exercises and hands on application of the LSS toolkit on a mock operational process.
Courses are facilitated in partnership with OE Partners and can be conducted onsite, at our premises or virtually. All courses can be customised to suit your requirements.

Your virtual classroom trainer has access to a variety of options to ensure effective communication and learning, both individually and as a group, including:
- Changing how webcams are viewed
- Screen sharing to display a document, presentation or other training content
- Changing the view to make an attendee the presenter
- Conducting polls and tests
- Splitting the classroom into small groups for activities

Collaboration and actively participating in a training session are essential. You can:
- Raise and submit questions/comments to the trainer or other attendees
- Use shared apps and drawing tools to collaborate with the whole group
- Participate in ‘breakout’ rooms for activities/small group discussions
- Share the trainer’s keyboard and mouse control
Note: Drawing tools, shared keyboard/mouse control and multi-monitor screen sharing are available on the installed desktop app only.
As virtual training is a very different experience to face-to-face training, each virtual session will be a maximum of 90 minutes (many sessions will be shorter), followed by a break. Your trainer will confirm the timings of breaks at the start of each day.
