Six Sigma Green Belt Training Course

Six Sigma is a set of techniques and statistical analysis tools used to improve processes by reducing the likelihood of defects and variation. Six Sigma was first developed at Motorola and grew to prominence after GE successfully adopted it in the late 80s.  Now the concept is widely used across manufacturing, service and financial organisations.

This ten-day Six Sigma Green Belt training course will incorporate the Lean Six Sigma Green Belt Foundation stage, so no prior training is required. The programme will develop delegates’ understanding of Six Sigma to a standard where they are confident in implementing the principles and techniques within their organisation and able to lead improvement projects.

The interactive Six Sigma Green Belt training course is split into two five-day sessions with a guided project in between. The first session will cover the basic Lean and Six Sigma tools and principles such as Kanban, DMAIC methodology, and the 7 Wastes, as well as basic improvement project leadership tools. The second session will consist of advanced Six Sigma statistical concepts and tools, and will include key topics such as analysing statistical data, introducing the use of Minitab, and Six Sigma implementation, as well as managing stakeholders’ requirements.

This course will develop a delegates understanding of the competency requirements for Six Sigma Green Belts as defined in ISO 18404 and will explain what is required to become ISO 18404 certified as a business or individual.
