Frequently asked questions

Can I enrol and join a course without any prior experience or knowledge of Lean Six Sigma?

Every course we provide assumes our participants start the course without any understanding of the Lean Six Sigma methodology. It starts with the fundamentals and explains every topic that is mentioned without assuming prior experience. During the course, you will carry out simulations and exercises to help you develop your knowledge. If you choose to carry out a project as part of your course, you will be coached and assisted by one of the (Master) Black Belts of The Lean Six Sigma Company to help you get started.

Should I go for a Green Belt or Black Belt course?

This depends on your goals and what you intend to achieve. If you would prefer to employ Lean Six Sigma on a part-time basis, for example alongside other work, the Green Belt course would be the best choice. If it’s your aim to work with Continuous Improvement and Lean Six Sigma on a full-time basis, then the Black Belt course would be the right pick.

Is a Lean Six Sigma course relevant to my career phase?

Lean Six Sigma is a methodology that one can start using during any career phase and this course is the ideal starting point. Even as a beginner, your work can add tremendous value. Lean Six Sigma can serve as an addition to your current work, replacing a part of your existing responsibilities. Or it can become a new full-time career, depending on the course you choose.


Green Belt vs Black Belt

The main difference is the scope of your projects. Green Belt projects are usually aimed at solving issues that affect a single department stakeholders. Black Belt projects tend to tackle long-standing, complex issues that cross departmental lines and affect different stakeholders. The responsibilities of a Green Belt align with those of a project manager. Black Belts carry more responsibilities and take a more active, leading role where they direct other Green Belts during projects.

How does the Services course differ from the Manufacturing course?

The Services course is most fitting for those employed in transactional careers such as general administration, logistics, finance, etc. The Industrial course is most fitting for those involved with mass production, machinery, factories and automation). Of course, those who complete the Manufacturing course can still carry out projects in the aforementioned transactional fields.

I find statistics a daunting topic, is a Lean Six Sigma course still for me?

The Green Belt course has very little statistics content, as opposed to our Black Belt course. Yet even the Black Belt courses have designed to start at the very basics, on the assumption that our participants aren’t familiar with anything related to statistics. We realise the idea of working with statistics can sound somewhat intimidating, but our trainers have helped thousands of participants understand (and find their interest in) statistics. Additionally, we offer complementary courses and several videos on our MyTraining™ platform that will help you prepare for, or repeat, specific exercises.

Do you offer any evening- or weekend courses?

The Lean Six Sigma Company strives to organize its courses during normal working hours.

This is a conscious choice in order to avoid interfering with the private lives of our participants and to get them used to the idea of working with Lean Six Sigma during typical working hours, and continue this habit once they complete the course.

However, some local exceptions apply. Please reach out to to the helpdesk in your region if you have any questions

Do you offer courses in other languages?
