Green Belt Lean Six Sigma


Lean Six Sigma Leadership Course

In the Green Belt course, Six Sigma Yellow Belts will add to their existing knowledge. The course will cover advanced charting techniques, the normal distribution, confidence intervals, capability analysis, control charts, failure mode and effects analysis, and lean calculations. Learning will be facilitated by group exercises and a lean simulation. There will be an open-book, multiple-choice exam at the end of the course.

Learning objectives:

1. Perform lean calculations based on Lean Six Sigma Green Belt standards.
2. Identify techniques for charting, normal distribution, and confidence intervals.
3. Identify techniques for capability analysis, controls charts, failure modes, and effects analysis.
