As part of the key enabler for successful deployment of Lean Sigma strategy, Lean Sigma Green Belts play the role in initiating improvement projects within their functional groups and support Black Belts in cross-functional improvement projects.
Comparing the capacity of skills and knowledge, Green Belts receive a subset of the Black Belt’s curriculum with intermediate level tools & techniques of Lean Sigma methodology.
The objective of this training program is to train the participants on the intermediate level skills in analysing and improving processes using the Lean Sigma approach. Upon completion of this training, the participants will be able to:
- Work with Black Belts to set up process improvement projects
- Lead a project team to execute departmental-level improvement project
- Apply the tools learned in day-to-day works
Participants will be able to:
- Utilise the structured DMAIC methodology in solving functional problems with breakthrough results.
- Apply quantitative techniques to make effective fact-based decision.
- Display the linkage between projects and desired departmental goals.
- Lead subject matter experts within to increase functional group efficiency.
- Manage & facilitate improvement project teams within their functional groups effectively.
- Lead & manage change within their own functional groups.
- Communicate effectively within the organization.
BSI Neville Clarke is an IASSC ACCREDITED TRAINING ORGANIZATION for Certified Lean Sigma Green Belt and Certified Lean Sigma Black Belt courses. The only method to earn an IASSC certification is to successfully sit for and pass an official IASSC certification™ exam. We do / upon request, administer or provide access to IASSC Certification exams for no additional cost.
