This certified Lean Six Sigma Green Belt training course provides attendees with the knowledge and skills to participate at Green Belt level in Lean Six Sigma projects.

The 5-day course combines Yellow Belt training with the more advanced Green Belt training. It begins by exploring Lean Six Sigma, offering a clear insight into its principles and benefits in business process improvement projects. Delegates will gain an understanding of the full project cycle, from selecting a suitable Lean Six Sigma project to implementing process controls on completion.

The inclusion of practical workshops and exercises gives delegates the opportunity to develop and practise their Lean Six Sigma skills.

By the end of the course attendees will be able to identify and undertake improvement projects that deliver outcomes such as reduced waste, greater productivity, enhanced quality, increased customer satisfaction and lower operational costs.

The training is led by expert tutors, including Master Black Belts who have been instrumental in the development of ISO 18404, the standard for Lean and Six Sigma.

This RSS certified Lean Six Sigma Green Belt course is recommended for delegates from all areas of an organisation, including those:

  • looking to improve business performance by removing the causes of defects and as a result increase customer satisfaction
  • wishing to use Lean Six Sigma methodologies to optimise processes and reduce variation
  • working in organisations seeking to increase productivity
  • responsible for continuous improvement within the organisation
  • responsible for supporting/monitoring the success of Six Sigma improvement or organisational improvement projects of all types

This course incorporates our Lean Six Sigma Yellow Belt training course, meaning no prior knowledge is required.

On completion of the course attendees will receive a recognised Lean Six Sigma Green Belt certificate.

Please note, this course includes a high degree of mathematics and statistics as this is a fundamental part of the Six Sigma approach. Laptops with Excel, or equivalent, are required for this course.

Topics covered in this Green Belt course include:

  • introduction to Lean and Six Sigma
  • Lean, Six Sigma and Lean Six Sigma competencies, organisational benefits and business process improvement
  • process thinking and the Lean Six Sigma toolkit
  • define – measure – analyse – improve – control (DMAIC) project management
  • stakeholder management
  • lean principles
  • process mapping
  • Kanban and Kaizen
  • value stream mapping (VSM)
  • change management
  • risk management
  • presentation and reporting
  • sustainability
  • statistics, data and problem solving
  • data acquisition for analysis
  • practical problem solving, including root cause analysis (RCA)
  • statistical concepts:
    • manipulation of data in Microsoft Excel
    • sampling
    • frequency distributions
    • measures of variation
    • hypothesis testing
  • Six Sigma tools:
    • measurement system analysis (MSA)
    • statistical process control (SPC)

Lean Six Sigma certification demonstrates a recognised capability to engage in Lean Six Sigma improvement projects at both Yellow and Green Belt level.

The teaching to Yellow Belt level enables students to understand:

  • the principles and benefits of Lean Six Sigma
  • the Lean Six Sigma roles at various levels
  • the Lean Six Sigma toolkit
  • how to quantify opportunities for improvement

Extending the Yellow Belt level onto the Green Belt teaches students to:

  • use Six Sigma tools such as regression and correlation, analysis of variance, measurement system analysis, standards and tolerances
  • apply statistical concepts such as sampling methods, Microsoft Excel functions and distributions and use statistical software
  • apply the DMAIC methodology to improvement projects
  • reduce and control variation within processes
  • identify and evaluate risks associated with Green Belt projects
  • mentor others on process improvement methods
  • confidently acquire and sample data to identify and quantify opportunities for improvement
  • formulate a project charter and stakeholder analysis for a Lean Six Sigma project
  • identify and manage stakeholder interests

The course is certified by the Royal Statistical Society (RSS).

Following the course, delegates who wish to progress to become a certified Six Sigma Black Belt can attend our 5-day Six Sigma Green Belt to Black Belt training course.
