  • Learning Objectives – Lean Six Sigma Green Belt Course The overarching learning objective of this course is to develop a comprehensive set of skills that will allow you to function effectively as a Six Sigma Green Belt. The Green Belt body of knowledge includes techniques for both quantitative and non-quantitative analysis, as well as the team leadership skills necessary to get projects across the goal line. After completing this course, you should be able to DO the following: Communicate using Six Sigma concepts. Employ a wide range of continuous process improvement techniques within the DMAIC Think about your organization as a model. collection of processes, with inputs that determine the output. Recognize the organizational factors that are necessary groundwork for a successful Relate Six Sigma concepts to the overall Six Sigma effort. business mission and objectives. Employ your Six Sigma skills to lead a Use the concept of a sigma level to evaluate successful process improvement project the capability of a process or organization. to deliver meaningful results to the organization. Understand and apply the five-step DMAIC model as a framework to organize process improvement activity. Powered by MoreSteam
