Register Lean Six Sigma Green Belt Training

8 days , 56 instructional hours
4.2 Continuing Education Units (CEUs)
 This is the preferred course for those interested in how Six Sigma and Lean can be applied to their organization as well as for those who wish gain the basic skills necessary to run Six Sigma projects.  It is designed to change the way you think, at home and at work.

 Determining what your customers want is critical to organizational success.  Green belts are the primary link between your organization and your customer.  They are on the front lines when assessing customer requirements and collecting data.  Typically Lean Six Sigma implementation teams are comprised of a black belt along with several green belts.  Green belts also lead small-to-medium projects with savings of $20,000-$100,000 per project.

The most valuable  and most widely used tools and concepts of Six Sigma and Lean are introduced in this course. 
Participants are encouraged to bring a real project from their company to the class (we can help with project selection.)  Instructor(s) will mentor participants with the project.  This allows real gains and real applications to be made during the course. Savings made in the first project can greatly exceed the cost of the course.
Here you can read guidelines for a successful Green Belt Project in addition to consulting the instructor prior to the start of your class.
