Green Belt Training Programme
Learn how to apply the Lean Six Sigma Tools
“Measurement is the first step that leads to control and eventually to improvement. If you can’t measure something, you can’t understand it. If you can’t understand it, you can’t control it. If you can’t control it, you can’t improve it.”
- H. James Harrington
Quite often organizations gather data, and review their KPI's at regular intervals, yet this valuable information quite often is not used to generate significant cost reductions, eliminate recurrent or new problems, increase operational efficiency, or even improve existing processes. This Lean Six Sigma Greenbelt course is designed to provide your organisation with a fully trained problem solver, who will be able to "read" the data, analyse it, and see in it opportunities to not only solve problems, but also to lead cost reduction and/or efficiency projects. Trainees will enhance their current skills by developing a detailed understanding of the DEFINE - MEASURE - ANALYSE - IMPROVE – CONTROL methodology.
It blends a number of Lean concepts and tools into the Six Sigma methodology to provide a powerful means to deliver improvements that are sustainable over time.
Lean Six Sigma can deliver results in all types of organisations and industries – not only in Engineering, Manufacturing and Assembly, but also in contact centres, the public sector, including healthcare, and in the software industry.
Introduce Lean Six Sigma into your organisation to achieve increased efficiency and effectiveness, resulting in delighted customers.
The training modules are split as follows -
Define / Measure Phase - January 25-27
Analyse Phase - Febraury 20-21
Improve / Control Phase - March 27-28
Presentations & Certification - 1 Day (TBC)
A gap of around 4 weeks between each module provides an opportunity for trainees to work on a project within their workplace, applying the methodolgy learned during the previous session's training. Extra support can be provided for the trainees with their project work.
Certification is available upon completion of Green Belt training plus one project in which the targeted savings have been achieved, a report which demonstrates the use of the tools and methodolgy is required.
