Six Sigma Green Belt

70 In Classroom Hours

Six Sigma is a strategic approach to implementing quality, process and business improvement through the use of statistical and other analytic tools applied to problems that have meaningful impact on key business results. Developed at Motorola in the 1980s, Six Sigma is a strategic roadmap and methodology leveraged in all business sectors to drive continuous improvement and operations excellence. General Electric, Ford Motor Company, Honeywell, among others, have received widespread attention in the business media for their successful six sigma programs.

The Six Sigma Green Belt provides a variety of roles to contribute towards an organization’s Six Sigma and overall strategic goals and objectives. In most cases, the Green Belt improves processes within their specific work area or as a part-time member of a team contributing to a larger scale Black Belt project. For example, Green Belts should be able to quantify the current state of a process, assess the capability of a measurement system, perform data analysis and stratify output variables into potential sources of variation. Some examples of outcomes could include reduction of variation in processes, reduction of defects or errors to increase demand and customer satisfaction and data analysis driving product quality and reliability.
