Why Choose this Training Course?

This PetroKnowledge Lean Six Sigma Green Belt Foundation course provides delegates with an understanding of key Lean Six Sigma concepts and techniques, and the ability to apply these concepts and techniques to real business issues.

Six Sigma is probably the most popular and widely used approach to operations business improvement today. Today, many companies are demonstrating major improvements in efficiency and customer service as a direct result of applying Six Sigma.

A Six Sigma project seeks to identify and remove the causes of defects and errors in business processes. To achieve this, the approach follows an internationally accepted standard methodology using a set of tools, including statistical methods, while creating an infrastructure within the organization to exploit opportunities involving all employees in the improvement process.

While Six Sigma and Lean both seek to achieve process improvement, they have a different emphasis. Lean focuses on reducing waste; Six Sigma focuses on reducing variation.  Lean Six Sigma integrates these two approaches.

Companies pursuing a Six Sigma strategy usually insist that managers, supervisors and team leaders engage in continuous improvement activity and, to give them the insights and skills to achieve this, they generally train to become Green Belts.

Apart from the limited numbers of Master Black Belts (top level company experts), the top level Six Sigma practitioners are Black Belts; these may typically work full-time on improvement activities. While Black Belts take responsibility for leading a Six Sigma project, they are usually supported by a number of Green Belts; the actual number will depend on the size of the organisation and its aspirations.

A Green Belt is expected to deliver the agreed benefits of a Six Sigma project to the organisation. These improvement activities will often be within the Green Belt's usual field of employment and operation.

Green Belts

  • Work with local line management to identify and quantify opportunities for improvement within the local environment
  • May work under the direction of a Black Belt or Master Black Belt
