Six Sigma Green Belt
Six Sigma is a problem solving methodology that uses statistical tools and techniques to greatly reduce the frequency of defects and errors in products and services. It creates an environment within which defects and errors can be measured in units per million or even units per billion. As a result, Six Sigma increases customer satisfaction, reduces processing waste and compresses lead and cycle times.

The principles of Six Sigma are typically implemented through the performance of targeted improvement projects that apply the proven Define, Measure, Analyze, Improve and Control (DMAIC) approach to specific production or administrative processes. Most projects can be performed by a qualified Six Sigma Green Belt, although a Six Sigma Black Belt may be needed for larger projects.

Our 5-day training course is designed to provide participants with knowledge of Six Sigma concepts, roles and implementation approaches sufficient to enable them to identify Six Sigma implementation opportunities and conduct Six Sigma projects with limited involvement of a Six Sigma Black Belt. Participants learn how to launch a successful Six Sigma project, apply the DMAIC approach to the identified process, quantify the final benefits of the project and report project outcomes to their peers and supervisors. Ideally, each graduate will be able to perform small Six Sigma projects on their own.
