Improve Performance, Enhance Quality, Reduce Costs


Lean Six Sigma (LSS) provides a systematic method to improve performance and reduce variation in business operations to achieve productivity and profitability gains. Students earn various colors of Belts which indicate their levels of mastery of LSS expertise. A person who has earned the designation of Lean Six Sigma Green Belt often plays a key role in the success of an organization’s process improvement initiatives.

As a member or leader of a high-performing LSS project team, the Green Belt is involved in selecting or defining projects, setting project objectives, data gathering, statistical analysis, and change implementation. To function effectively, Green Belts need to understand and apply the basic LSS concepts, tools and methodologies in a variety of situations. This course is designed to educate those who wish to attain the level of Green Belt.

Every training is hands-on and instructor led, however, students can select whether to apply the tools to improve a real process or a case study which is provided.

Project-Based Training (2,495)

  • For those who are able to do so, we strongly recommend applying the learning to improve a real process. Students can either bring in a process improvement project from their work location, or team up with fellow students to complete a group project. Unless students already work together, group projects are only permitted in the Live Online or In-Class formats.  Students who want to receive coaching and mentorhsip, and have the option to progress into the LSS Black Belt class, should select the project-based training.
Case Study Training  ($1995)
  • Students who do not wish to apply the tools to a real project or do not have the opportunity to do so, can select the 'Case Study' course. This class does not include the same level of coaching and mentorship; however, it provides an excellent overview of the process improvement framework. Students who take this course will receive the same number of units, but may not be elegible to progress into the LSS Black Belt course
