Lean Six Sigma Green Belt (LSSGB) Certification
The Lean Six Sigma Green Belt program is intended for those who spend some of their time on process improvement teams and operates in support of a Lean Six Sigma Black Belt, they are experts in identifying problems, data capturing and analysis, build solutions to lower operational costs and raise profitability.
A Certified Lean Six Sigma Green Belt successfully applies process improvement to businesses and organizations across all industries.
Lean Six Sigma Green Belt training, written and facilitated by the author of the latest Lean Six Sigma Handbooks, provides an overview of the principles and methods of Lean Six Sigma deployment and includes:
- Twelve months access to on line materials including training slides, online study guide, online certification exam and additional Knowledge Center references.
- Green Belt XL software (Twelve month Student Version). Minitab examples also included!
- Upon successful course completion: Electronic certificate indicating either Lean Six Sigma Green Belt Certification without Projects or (if two acceptable projects submitted) Lean Six Sigma Green Belt Certification with Projects.
Candidates should have a general understanding of business functions, good level of English language, general proficiency using internet browsers, be familiar with MS Office Excel and want to actively participate into Lean Six Sigma Projects
By completing the Lean Six Sigma Green Belt Certification course, students will be able to:
- Recognize key attributes of a successful Lean Six Sigma deployment strategy.
- Appreciate project selection criteria.
- Realize the role of a Green Belt in the Lean Six Sigma organization.
- Understand fundamentals of the DMAIC problem solving methodology.
- Use basic Lean Six Sigma tools for Lean Six Sigma project definition and process baseline.
- Understand the need for advanced problem-solving and improvement methodologies used by Project Teams when supported by Lean Six Sigma Black Belts.
- Actively participate in a Lean Six Sigma team.
