Six Sigma Green Belt
Six Sigma is an approach to continuous improvement that seeks to review and upgrade an organisations processes, in order to increase organisation profitability by providing increased customer value at a lower cost.
This approach combines programme management, project management, problem solving techniques and statistical analysis in the continuous review and revision of processes.
The 5-Day Green Belt programme is a certified programme for which participants will have to complete a project, show predetermined and quantified financial and business benefits, and pass a written multiple choice examination.
All workshops are interactive in nature and case-study based. The contents will be varied to cater for specific sectors represented at the training programme.
Participants seeking certification will be required to attend a post implementation review involving a presentation on the project a written examination and a certification ceremony.
Participants will be given assistance and support by the course facilitators, as required, during their project work.
Some features of our approach to learning are:
The training is experiential i.e. "learning by doing", and each candidate works through a project during training
The 5 day Green Belt training is blocked into 3-2 blocks, spaced to accommodate learning by doing
Courses are delivered using extracts from the American Society for Quality curriculum (see www.asq.org ), and we use a combination of project work, validated savings/revenue and written examination to certify candidates
We provide soft copies of all training materials to accommodate in-house training by the client at future dates
We facilitate inter-company networks so you can learn from the experiences of other Six Sigma practitioners
We provide supporting advice on Six Sigma introduction, programme development, change management, project and candidate selection as required by the client.
Participants will be required to select a project on which to work during and post training. The participants organisation and the course facilitators will approve the project in advance.

Middle management, supervisors and specialists (e.g. engineers, laboratory analysts, cost accountants). Knowledge of statistics is not required before attending the programme. The most successful participants are likely to be those who have supervisory experience, and who are well regarded as change agents within their workplace.
