This 5-day Lean Six Sigma (LSS) Yellow Belt workshop serves to provide participants with the knowledge and tools to perform the role of a LSS Yellow Belt. The LSS Yellow Belt training materials are comprehensive and include the phases of the LSS body of knowledge covering the background and history of LSS as well as the Define, Measure and Control phases of the DMAIC (Define, Measure, Analyze, Improve, and Control) process. This course is ideal for those who wish to understand the basics of LSS as well as gain useful statistical and business tools associated with the Define, Measure and Control phases of the DMAIC process.
What is Lean Six Sigma?
Lean Six Sigma is a business management philosophy, which aims to improve effectiveness and efficiency, at the same time, in order to improve customer experience. Lean Six Sigma is a culture of improvement, innovation and leadership, combining the principles of Lean (waste elimination) and Six Sigma (variation justification) into a cohesive and powerful skill set to drive positive results.
How can Lean Six Sigma help you?
Lean Six Sigma training provides you with the knowledge and tools maximize time, cost, and labor resources in order to consistently meet and exceed internal and external customer expectations.
Who Should Attend?
Employees from all industries and at all levels in the organization will greatly benefit from the LSS Yellow Belt training course. The LSS Yellow Belt Training Course is fundamental training for those who need to support LSS and other continuous improvement projects. Please call us for more information on this course.
