Lean Six-Sigma Green Belt Certification Programme

Overview:

This high impact programme skillfully trains the participant to become certified as a Lean Six-Sigma Green Belt. This certification enhances professional core competencies in World-Class business processes. Additionally, praticipants are better qualified to increase operational effectiveness, engage employees, reduce operating expenses, improve industry reputation, and leverage business excellence. Customer value creation awareness is a prime element of this unique training initiative.

In this hands-on learning expereince, you will:

  • Understand how to deploy the potential of Lean Six-Sigma as a strategic business tool.
  • Learn the basics of Lean Processing and Six-Sigma applications to focus on the reduction of operational costs.
  • Learn to maximize profits by reducing process variation and expanding operational control and stability.
  • Re-define your perception of “normal” to “excellent” with the skillful application of Lean Six-Sigma tools.

“Upon successful completion of this worldclass high-impact programme, which includes all established certification skill points of Lean Six-Sigma Body of Knowdlege, participants would receive Lean Six-Sigma Green Belt Certification”

Objectives:

Participants attending this programmeme will:

  • Enhance their understanding of the basic level Lean Six-Sigma process.
  • Learn to successfully deploy Six-Sigma into current business operations for effectiveness through teamwork.
  • Learn the basics of Lean Six-Sigma methodology, statistical analysis, and its analytical integration into the business process.
  • Learn to integrate the principles of Lean Six-Sigma to establish process control and minimize process variation, subsequently, reducing operational costs.
  • Develop their understanding of the skills and behaviours required to fully deploy Lean Six-Sigma into your organization.

Training Methodology:

This high impact training and development is a proven blend of Lean Six-Sigma theory, lecture, hands-on classroom exercises and video programmes to facilitate the learning experinece.

This is a highly interactive prorgarm which involves the participant in every level. We “learn by doing” in a safe classroom environment. This is “hands-on, common-sense” learning in which we skillfully utilize proven elements of contemporary adult learning theory.

Many of the exercises emphaisze the integration of teamwork to facilitate Six-Sigma success. We use workplace examples from all types of business processes to make this training more applicable to the participant’s work environment.

Organisational Impact:

The organization will benefit from Six-Sigma integration by having more money returned to working capital. This is facilitated by the reduction of process errors and a more stable process. Subsequently, more time is available to the management team by reducing process variation. This will allow the organization to gain a competitive advantage with more accurate material flow and processing.

Personal Impact:

Delegates attending this programme gain a deeper appreciation and understanding of Six-Sigma methodology and the skillful application of this World-Class concept. Additionally, Six-Sigma deployment enhances the managerial skill set and professional competency of the participant.
