Lean Six Sigma Green Belt Training: Course Introduction

Two household brand names can be used as examples to explain Lean process six sigma. Harley-Davidson was in big financial trouble when they were bought by a group of investors in 1981, the investors went in with a clear goal in mind – not just survival, but successful survival. Bringing them back from the brink of ruin was implementing the Just-In-Time principle. Ten years later Toyota was in the same position that Harley-Davidson was. They took the Just-In-Time principle and created a business philosophy around it. These principles became known as Lean process six sigma. They cultivated a culture of excellence from the ground up and by using Six Sigma to streamline production, effectively got rid of overstocking, under producing, time inefficiency and low production. We welcome participants to our Six Sigma courses and assure you of the benefits implementing the system will bring.

Delivery Method (Internal or External)

5 day, instructor led, classroom-based training sessions (08.30 to 16:30)

All our courses are outcomes based and facilitated to encourage active delegate participation using:

      • Break-away sessions
      • Relevant business exercises
      • Role-plays / simulations
      • Questionnaires / checklists
      • Discussion activities and
      • Case studies

Learners are presented with real life industry specific case studies. With the acquired knowledge and confidence, delegates can take their enhanced skills back into the business environment and apply them successfully.

A comfortable climate is created by the group facilitator, thus enabling delegates the opportunity to introspect and evaluate themselves: their skills; generate ideas and solutions to problems; and plan suitable growth in the workplace.

All delegates will receive:

      • Manuals, workbooks/files
      • Tea, lunches and all refreshments (external courses)
      • Note pad and pen
      • Certificate of Attendance
      • International Certification (additional $295)** Need to obtain a minimum of 80% for online exam
