This course teaches you the DMAIC (define-measure-analyze-improve-control) methodology using examples from across industries. You will learn to define improvement projects, serve on Black Belt teams or lead Green Belt teams in process improvement projects to satisfy the voice of the customer and reduce variation.
This Green Belt training teaches and prepares individuals to implement the principles, practices, and techniques of Lean Six Sigma in a support capacity on a Black Belt project team. Green Belts are traditionally Lead process stakeholders and may also be assigned specific process-level improvement projects to conduct on their own—projects that normally do not require the statistical rigor demonstrated by a Black Belt. Participants may be learning alongside those who will be continuing to Black Belt training ensuring consistent learning between both belts. In the virtual setting there will be frequent breakouts sessions as well as some independent work outside of the virtual classroom. This course will use Minitab statistical software. Each participant is required to have their own current version of Minitab statistical software.

Detailed Course DescriptionThe 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.
Learned skills are practiced and applied through individual and team exercises, as well as to individual projects. Participants will be able to apply the concepts learned in the class to a business improvement project assigned to them by their management sponsor.
Green Belts provide value within the organization’s Lean Six Sigma framework in a variety of ways. They serve on Black Belt project teams to help collect and analyze data, develop process maps, assist the Black Belt in certain levels of statistical analysis, and develop experimental designs for a project. These activities serve to support and accelerate progress in every project—which helps to maximize the organization’s return on its investment and adds capacity to deliver even greater numbers of breakthrough improvement projects throughout the company.
Green Belts are also assigned specific improvement projects to conduct on their own; projects that would not require the statistical rigor demonstrated by the Black Belt. Green Belts conduct these projects within the scope of their normal daily roles.
