Six Sigma Green Belt Training Course

Six Sigma Green Belt (8 days + project support and mentoring)

Six Sigma is a very powerful methodology used to solve complex problems with statistical rigour.  Our clients have used it to:

  • Optimise machine settings, improving quality and reducing waste
  • Validate business decision making rules, ensuring consistency across regions
  • Monitor and control sub-contractor costs, highlighting issues in a timely manner
  • Evaluate potential new software, preventing a costly mis-purchase

 As a Six Sigma Green Belt, your projects would aim to save your organisation in the order of £25k – and very likely more.

Course Objectives

This intensive, practical and interactive 8+1 day programme will enable delegates to understand:

  • The big picture view of their organisation
  • The DMAIC process, in context with the Lean Value Chain
  • The advanced techniques around Six Sigma
  • The power of software to simulate processes and improvement opportunities
  • The difficulty, and the tools, to maintain improvements

It consists of three sets of two- or three-day courses, approximately two weeks apart; followed by a three-month project in the delegate’s organisation.  This project is supported by mentoring, including one day on site, and forms part of the overall assessment. 

Course Content

The Lean Sigma Green Belt training course, which includes a number of group exercises, covers:

WEEK 1 – Define and Measure (3 days)

WEEK 2 – Measure and Analyse (3 days)

WEEK 3 – Analyse, Implementation and Control (2 days)

Who should attend?

The Lean Sigma Green Belt course is ideal for those individuals who need to solve technical and challenging problems as part of their daily duties. This could include team leaders, departmental managers and senior managers

Duration and accreditation process:

8 days in the class room in blocks of 3 or 2, followed by an optional day within the next three months for 1 on 1 mentoring of projects.

Accreditation is through demonstrating a significant impact for the host business, with an aim of £25k saving per year, assessed by a report.

In-house Package:

The Green Belt programme is run in-house with up to 8 delegates for each wave of delivery at no additional cost per delegate.  Price per individual course is dependent on the scale of overall implementation of Six Sigma in the organisation, but a budget price would be £6500 to £8500 per course, including all UK expenses.  An additional mentoring day would be included when there are more than four delegates, for no additional cost.
