In March of 2020, Lean Methods Group like many other businesses was faced with the sobering reality that business models reliant on brick and mortar were at grave risk. Our first reaction was to recreate the classroom experience using a camera, laptop, and whiteboard while adhering to the rules of time and space created centuries ago and modified over time to accommodate air travel. (5 days x 8 hours)

We quickly learned that eight solid hours of virtual training while home with the pets, kids and spouse was untenable for our participants and all of us were craving more meaningful collaborative interactions with other professionals.
Through our experiences of the last two years and the voice of our customers, Lean Methods has created a world-class, virtually delivered certification program. Whether candidates are at home or office, they can enjoy, learn and practice applying the tools and methods to receive a Lean Six Sigma certification.

Following the disciplined Six Sigma DMAIC (Define-Measure-Analyze-Improve-Control) road map, this course teaches you how to collect and analyze performance data, identify inefficiencies and problems, pinpoint root causes, and institute new protocols to greatly improve processes. In addition to teaching the complementary methodologies of Lean and Six Sigma, this course also provides skills in leading teams through the process of change.

Learning Objectives

Upon completion of this course, participants will be able to:

  • Define, design and execute DMAIC projects.
  • Apply such Lean concepts as 5S, waste reduction, mistake proofing and value stream mapping.
  • Formulate basic statistical analyses to determine the relationship between key inputs and process outputs.
  • Apply DMAIC to solve business issues and transition projects from phase to phase.
  • Effectively manage team dynamics and recognize how to work with leadership.
  • Prepare and present project reports and presentations to instructors, peers and management.



Who Should Attend?

  • Anyone in any industry who wants to develop new or refine existing problem solving skills.


Requirements for Certification:

  • Proficiency of at least 70% on exams
  • Submission and acceptance of Green Belt project
  • Attendance in the virtual classroom with active participation

Certificates Received:

    • Upon completion of the virtual classroom, students will receive a “training completion” certificate for Lean Six Sigma Green Belt
    • Upon meeting the certification requirements above, students will receive a “Certificate of Lean Six Sigma Green Belt Certification”
    • **Students seeking certification through IASSC must successfully sit for and pass the IASSC exam.  Lean Methods Group’s Green Belt course, quizzes, and exams prepare the student for the IASSC exam based on their Body of Knowledge.  Lean Methods Group’s exams are included in this course, so students have the opportunity to certify through both institutions.

Students will attend five lab sessions with each lab running for two consecutive days four hours per day of live instructor-led virtual classroom via the Microsoft Teams platform and blend this learning with Lean Methods’ state-of-the-art online Green Belt course. The course is designed to be accelerated through 10 days over 12 weeks of virtual lab training. Project coaching hours are delivered via workflow through the Lean Methods certification portal.
