Green Belts play a significant role within a Six Sigma infrastructure and culture. Their
primary roles are critical in many ways. Green Belts provide value within the
organization’s Six Sigma initiative in a variety of ways.
• Leading Six Sigma projects of and making process improvements as a part of
their overall job
• Deploying their organization’s Six Sigma program
• Participating as a key team member and partner in Black Belt projects
• Helping to direct and collect data and conduct experiments for improvement
• Working with process owners to ensure project gains are sustained
• Facilitating the sharing of best practices throughout the organization
Who should attend the training?
This 5-day training workshop is designed for engineers and managers who desire to
bring in process improvements and/or wish to support Six Sigma black belts. Those

(CSSGB) will also be benefited as the course is designed based on the ASQ CSSGB
Body of Knowledge.
Benefits of the training:
After attending the workshop, the participants will be able to understand and apply Six
Sigma tools to make process improvements. Each participant is expected to identify a
Six Sigma green belt project before attending the course. Guidelines for project selection
will be provided to registered participants. This 5-day training workshop organized by
Institute of Quality and Reliability (IQR) includes sufficient hands on exercises using
special software tool namely SigmaXL. About 30% time in the workshop would be
