A fundamental success driver for organisations to become high performing, is to build and distribute competency to deliver sustainable improvements inside the organisation. Lean Six Sigma Green Belt training provides the skills necessary to facilitate moderately complex improvement projects and deliver intended organisational results. For the majority of issues
within an organisation, people with Green Belt level skills are able to deliver change that is a measurable improvement which can be sustained. In this sense the Green Belt course equips participants with Core Skills and Knowledge to be a skilled and confident Improvement Project Manager, and is STAGE ONE of the BLACK BELT Program.
Who Should Attend
• Project Managers leading improvement projects and programs
• Employees who will act as a facilitator or coach for improvement activities
• Leaders sponsoring improvement projects or leading larger programs
• Individuals interested for a career in Organisational Improvement & Process Excellence
Duration & Outline
Duration: five days (8:30 to 5:30) but can be tailored to suit specific needs of the organisation. Broadly following the improvement journey (DMAIC), this program integrates Lean & Six Sigma employing high levels of interactivity and practical application. It provides an important balance between a) the “technical” side of Lean Sigma methodology & tools, and b) change
management skills essential to successful implementation and sustainability of improvements.
The use of a realistic hands-on improvement project is intrinsic to participants’ learning. Each participant gets several chances to lead portions of the project employing facilitation techniques specific to improvement projects. This enables them to apply and test their newly acquired knowledge and skills in a risk-free environment.
The Black Belt program (stages 2 & 3) aims to equip individuals with the knowledge and skills to:
• Develop skills to confidently lead an improvement project using Lean Sigma Methodologies
• Identify appropriate organisational changes through skilled application of improvement planning tools
• Employ key underpinning concepts, such as systems thinking, outside-in thinking, variation
• Apply fundamental analytical and problem-solving techniques and statistical analyses, including software such as Minitab and Quality Companion
• Use improvement-specific change management techniques to ensure successful implementation of improvement projects. For example engagement of stakeholders & buy-in for the change, communication, group dynamics, work preference styles
