Six Sigma - Green Belt:

Learn to implement improvement projects

Developing Green Belts in an organization is very important for the overall success of the Six Sigma initiatives. Benefits to the company are realized only when process information, through appropriate analysis, is transformed into knowledge.

 

Six Sigma Green Belt training provides
candidates the tools to turn that information into knowledge that can be utilized throughout the company. Our two-week program encompasses about 70 training contact hours. Green Belt candidates can be employees at virtually all levels of the organization. They are not, however, usually in full-time process improvement positions. The designation “Green Belt” refers to
people who have mastered the basic skills, and are assigned to Six Sigma projects as needed. Green Belts are usually led by the Black Belts to apply the right tools at the right time to make
process improvements to relatively
difficult problems.

Students learn how to first DEFINE opportunities. The next step is to MEASURE the performance of the process. The third phase is how to ANALYZE the opportunity, and seek out the potential causes of variation. Students learn how to apply statistical methods to identify and root out these causes. The steps then are to IMPROVE and CONTROL the performance of the process.ct. The in-class portion consists of lectures, exercises, and team-learning competitions.
