Lean Six Sigma Green Belt

Course ID VLSSGB2023ASQ
Format Live Virtual

This lean course teaches you the define-measure-analyze-improve-control methodology using case studies from several industries. You will learn to define improvement projects to satisfy the customer and reduce variation.


Embark on an eye-opening three-week Lean Six Sigma training journey that unites Green and Black Belt participants, crafting a shared expertise in the essential principles and practices of Lean and Six Sigma. The Six Sigma methodology is a systematic application that is focused on achieving significant financial results and increasing customer satisfaction. When properly deployed on carefully selected business projects, this methodology can lead to a significant reduction—and in many cases, elimination—of defects, process waste, and out-of-control processes, which translate into dramatic business gains. Our high-impact program guarantees a steadfast Green Belt knowledge foundation, ensuring participants are well-versed in the intricacies of Lean Six Sigma methodologies.

This intensive three-week training is meticulously designed to equip quality professionals with the skills and insights needed to implement Lean Six Sigma in their industry and work responsibilities. (The focus is also on preparing participants to contribute effectively in a support capacity on a Black Belt project team.) Green Belts emerge as pivotal process stakeholders, armed with the capability to take on specific process-level improvement projects independently. These projects, while not mandating the statistical rigor demonstrated by a Black Belt, empower Green Belts to drive impactful improvements within their domains. Join us in this dynamic in-person training experience where knowledge transforms into actionable expertise, propelling individuals into key roles within Lean Six Sigma initiatives.

Note: Each participant must own and install the latest version of Minitab (statistical software) before the course start.
