Lean Six Sigma Green Belt Certificate

Lean Six Sigma is a business improvement methodology designed to deliver superior performance, reliability, and value to internal and external clients by identifying, analyzing and improving work processes and eliminating waste. Our Lean Six Sigma Green Belt (LSSGB) class seeks to convey the fundamentals and principles necessary to effectively apply the DMAIC (Define, Measure, Analyze, Improve and Control) cycle to most projects. This customer-focused, highly disciplined problem-solving approach relies on successful data analysis, solutions-based tactics, and the ability to maintain long-term positive process improvement advancements.
