  2. 2. Lean Six Sigma Yellow Belt Certification Dear Executive, Process improvement is about commitment to excellence and quality; a commitment that we make to change the way we work on a daily basis. Lean and Six Sigma are toolsets that an organization can use to dramatically improve quality, reduce cycle time and achieve cost savings. These tools work very well independently or in concert. While Lean focuses on eliminating waste, Six Sigma focuses on reducing process variation. The end goal of deploying one or both is typically the same - increased organizational efficiency through continuous improvement. The Lean Six Sigma Yellow Belt Certification course provides an overview of Six Sigma concepts, background and the Six Sigma “Define-Measure-Analyze-Improve-Control” process (DMAIC). You will learn how to develop and apply specific Six Sigma tools and methods to solve business challenges. Leaders should complete the Yellow Belt training with initial projects chartered, either ready for a Black Belt or Green Belt to lead or take with them to their training. The Lean Six Sigma Yellow Belt Certification will help you create a continuous improvement culture where employees and managers use Lean Six Sigma thinking and strategy to conduct day-to-day operations and long-term projects. These methodologies and management systems enable you and your organization to create a self-sustaining process improvement program that will propagate throughout your organization for both short-and long-term success. I look forward to meeting you in September! Sincerely, Amanda Ward Program Director American Strategic Management Institute 2

The identification of real life examples will create a learning atmosphere that resonates with participants while at the same time providing immediate return on your training investment. Using interactive exercises that employ actual projects or scenarios from your organization, instructors can address specific challenges and align the curriculum of each session to your objectives.
