Lean Methods has designed the Fast-Track Green Belt Program to give you the opportunity to certify with the same rigor of the traditional Green Belt Program and with the same high quality content, but at an accelerated rate. Through blended learning, (instructor-led live virtual training and state of the art e-learning), personalized project coaching by a Lean Methods’ Master Black Belt, and an assigned project, we give you more than the usual set of tools to set you up for success.

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.
