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:
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).
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
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.
