Lean Six Sigma Green Belt training builds the proficiency in the trainees to improve the capability of a process instead of controlling product quality. The courses focus on all the aspects of the DMAIC and develop strong problem-solving skills. By exploring the Six Sigma tools, the participants will take deep into the process improvement conducted at small-scale. They can successfully deploy Six Sigma projects by laying emphasis on cost reduction and process cycle time reduction while improving the customer satisfaction.

By the end of the Lean Six Sigma Green Belt training course, you can exhibit the following skills:

  • Understand the concept of Six Sigma
  • Describe the DMAIC approach for process improvement
  • Explain the tools and techniques used in different phases of DMAIC i.e. Define, Measure, Analyse, Improve and Control phases
  • Determine how to analyse process data and solve problems by controlling the processes
  • Lead small-scale Six Sigma projects or assist Black Belts on large-scale projects to deliver tangible results
Target audience
  • IT Professionals
  • Business Professionals
  • Operations Managers
  • Senior team leaders
  • Quality and process improvement professionals
  • Aspirants interested in process improvement
  • Individuals interested in becoming Six Sigma professionals
Prerequisites
