Colorado Lean Six Sigma Green Belt Training and Certification
If you are deciding to go for a Lean Six Sigma green belt, you need to go through a yellow belt before anything else. The Lean 6 Sigma methodology comes with different levels that are known as belts in this case. The yellow one represents the initial phase where an introduction to its terminology, structure, principles, goals, and tools will be provided for those who get trained in it and certified later on.
When going for the green belt since it is the next one, you need to be well-versed in the previous details and aspects to guarantee you will know how to implement LSS and start or manage projects around it. Although many consider the green belt training to be just the same as the yellow one, there is much more involved.
You need to not only know how Lean 6 Sigma can be implemented to improve processes but actually start doing it. Analysis, data, measurements, problems, solutions, and experience will be elements to consider while getting trained in this belt.
And we at Lean Six Sigma Experts of Colorado will make sure you go through the right training to finally have a more relevant role in its implementation. While yellow belt experts participate in small roles that report issues and measure data, green belts will start to build projects to identify problems and solve them, eliminate waste and variations, and guarantee the company is focusing on the customers’ requirements.
For all this, we will provide you with the information and details that will turn you into a great expert for this level.
