Green Belt Course

A pivotal role in continuous improvement of processes

The world around us changes at an ever increasing pace often driven by technology. To ward of threats but perhaps more importantly profit from new opportunities, businesses will need to constantly adapt, continuously improve the way they work. Lean Six Sigma provides the ideal structure to facilitate Continuous Improvement of processes.

An important role in these business improvement initiatives lies with Lean Six Sigma Green Belts. Not only are they involved in optimizing day to day processes but are also essential in creating and maintaining the mindset of an improvement culture.

To play this vital part Green Belts will need to have profound understanding of how to use Lean Six Sigma. They will need to ask the right questions, use the right tools but also and last but not least gain the support and commitment of others within in their organisation

Lean Six Sigma Green Belt course

The Green Belt course is a so-called ‘blended’ course (blending online and classroom elements) starting with an online preparation (tutorial on Yellow Belt level and basic statistics for Six Sigma). The six classroom days focus on the practical application of Lean Six Sigma using learning methods such as ‘peer to peer’ learning, simulations and business cases.

This theoretical part of the Green Belt course ends with a theoretical exam leading to the first certification (evidencing theoretical knowledge on a Green Belt level).

It is followed by a Practical Assignment which is essentially a project the delegate submits during which coaching is provided by the Master Black Belt. It provides the unique opportunity to translate theory intro practice under the guidance of an experienced Master Black Belt. Another important benefit is that first tangible benefits with often a substantial busienss impact can be achieved.

Successfully completing the project leads to final certification.

You will find more detailed information, such as the complete programme and competency overview in our prospectus.

Includes our online preparation package (Yellow Belt and Basic statistics).

Lean Six Sigma in your company

Although Lean Six Sigma is best known as a project-based improvement structure, it is much broader than that. Lean Six Sigma is an established philosophy, an organisational and improvement structure as well as a set of tools. Using this perspective Lean Six Sigma addresses organisational issues with respect to competitiveness, cost reduction and customer satisfaction. 

Depending on your ambition, Lean Six Sigma can be implemented in phases. Every organisation is unique, without a common blueprint that universally applies. Together with you, The Lean Six Sigma Company will develop a plan of action tailored to your organisation.
