Course Description

This course is 21 learning hours inclusive of 21 hours of live sessions. It is recommended that students spend an additional 2 hours per week on this course.

Since the mid-1980s, the most successful organizations have used Lean Six Sigma to enable its people to make a direct difference by using sound business processes aligned with strategy for the benefit of the customer. This interactive course will introduce Lean Six Sigma’s modern, effective and collaborative approach to solving organizational quality and efficiency problems. It will cover the importance of defining, testing and refining measurements throughout the life cycle of a project in order to improve process performance. It will also highlight the importance of the value stream map and how it can be used as a visual representation of processes involved in delivering a product or service to help identify and eliminate inefficiencies. 

Upon completion of the course, participants will have the opportunity to take a formal Green Belt certification exam, written approximately six weeks after the last virtual session, to acknowledge their Green Belt-level knowledge of Lean Six Sigma methodology tools and techniques. To get the most out of the program, the completion of a job site project with Black Belt coaching support is highly recommended, but not required.
