This 5 day internationally recognised training program is designed for those people who require a working understanding of the techniques and principles of Lean 6 Sigma to a project management level.
What is Lean Six Sigma?
Lean Six Sigma is a set of principles, methods, tools and techniques for process improvement in all forms of work and business. Most of its principles, methods, tools and techniques have been developed over many decades and even centuries…however the term ‘Lean’ developed out of the effective implementation of these principles, methods, tools and techniques by Toyota car manufacturing in the 1960’s, 70’s and 80’s and the term ‘Six Sigma’ was coined by Motorola in the 1980’s as the name for their Quality improvement program.Six Sigma, a data-driven approach to eliminate defects in processes, was introduced and developed at Motorola. Statistical analyses of processes are combined with organizational rewards. Six Sigma evolved side-by-side with Lean, and although can be used as independent entities, they also complement each other very well.

Lean 6 Sigma Green Belt is for those who will ‘lead’ improvement projects.
Typically, process problems may be present but the route cause unknown, therefore by using Lean AND Six Sigma methodologies (DMAIC) together with data driven decision making, cause can be established and permanent corrective action implemented.
Lean Six Sigma provides a comprehensive and proven approach for the positive transformation of any organization by using the principles, methods, tools, and techniques to improve the key processes that make up the organization.
Lean Six Sigma specifically offers the following benefits:
- Improved Quality of products and services
- Lower amounts of defects, scrap, and rework
- Improved delivery times
- Reduced waiting times
- Reduced costs
- Improved customer satisfaction
- Improved employee morale
- Using previously discussed lean tools together with Six Sigma methodologies the delegates will be able to investigate route cause of process issues.
- Define – Project scope, benefits of implementation
- Measure & Analyze – Current state (Value Stream Mapping, 7 Quality Tools)
- Improve – Identify and pilot improvement
- Control – Agreed improvement to ensure sustainability
What are the benefits
In order to demonstrate a good understanding of the topics discussed, there is an examination on Day 2 (YB) and Day 5 (GB) of this course. This is a multi-choice open book exam.
On successful completion, delegates can call themselves certified Lean 6 Sigma Green Belts and have the knowledge to lead process improvement teams.
Having several Green Belt within the organization will give ownership in applying continuous improvement to make their processes Safer, Easier, Better, Faster and Cheaper resulting in improved customer satisfaction and business stability.
Offering better value for money, they can be designed to closely match your specific requirements.
