Six Sigma Green Belt

Six Sigma seeks to eliminate process variation. Six Sigma uses data, measurements, and statistics to identify inefficiencies and eliminate defects. Any time a process fails to deliver a good product, there is a cost incurred. In a typical company, this “cost of poor quality” represents 15 to 20 percent of revenue and is often hidden. Implementing Six Sigma will improve productivity, throughput, quality, delivery times, and customer satisfaction. Also, you will see decreases in rework, defects, “fire-fighting”, overtime, and operating costs.

Who Should Take This Course:

Six-Sigma Green Belt is intended for those interested in improving current processes. By applying Six Sigma tools to projects closely related to their current duties, Green Belts create significant, measurable impacts for businesses. The Six-Sigma Green Belt Solutions Program develops the technical skills of the individuals selected to become key Six Sigma Project Team Members and leaders of smaller Six Sigma projects.
