Frequently asked questions

Why should I do a Yellow Belt course?

Completing our Yellow Belt course is both a fast and relatively simple way of getting up to speed on Lean Six Sigma. The course teaches you about most of the techniques that you may come across as someone who is involved with Lean Six Sigma project (but not necessarily leads or participates in them)

This makes it a suitable course for team members who are looking to be well-informed about projects, but also for managers and team leads who might have to direct people who do lead projects. When people start talking about wanting to carry out a Kaizen Event or Value Stream Mapping session, you will know how much time it can take and what to expect instead of going into it blindly or refusing to commit time to it because the benefits aren’t known to you.

Is this a course intended only for beginners?

The Yellow Belt course is not intended for beginners only, the course deals with the same types of complex tools that Black Belts and Lean Leaders employ as well. The difference is the usage of statistical tools such as Minitab, and such things as knowledge of the DMAIC project structure, amongst other things.

Where other courses explore project management tools in-depth, the Yellow Belt focuses on the most commonly used tools. If you do not intend to personally lead a Lean Six Sigma project yourself, the Yellow Belt is a much better choice for you than a Black Belt for example. This also makes it a good crash course for those who quickly want to acquire knowledge of Lean Six Sigma and a certificate that acts as proof of their understanding, or for those who want to manage a team working with Lean Six Sigma.

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

Every course we provide assumes our students start the training 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.


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

Lean and Lean Six Sigma are methodologies 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. Either methodology 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.

What is the right course for me?

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 of 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. The same applies to Lean and our Lean Practitioner and Lean Leader courses, respectively.
