Lean Six Sigma Green Belt training and Certification in Brussels
This Lean Six Sigma Green Belt training is a interactive workshop to discover how Lean management refers to process optimization and waste elimination; and how Six Sigma projects are connected to quality improvement and client satisfaction.
This 6-day Lean Six Sigma Green Belt Training provides you an effective course + exam of what you, as effective team member or consultant, are required to perform as a Certified Green Belt. Training objectives:
- Use Lean Management principles to identify waste in order to design faster and responsive processes
- Use Six Sigma to improve customer satisfaction by delivering quality on a consistent basis
- Prepare you to deal with operational excellence, process management, continuous improvement and customer satisfaction issues
- Lead DMAIC projects (with support of a Black Belt)
- Solve in a scientific and sustainable way operational problems with moderate complexity and/or with moderate ambition (“3 sigma” project)
- Improve the quality of products or services
- Support the implementation of a Six Sigma approach in an enterprise
- Good understanding of an operational problem (efficiency vs effectiveness)
- Structure problems resolution according to the DMAIC method

Lean Six Sigma Green Belt Training Program
This Lean Six Sigma Green Belt training is a structured and disciplined management method based on process improvement targeting quality. We will teach you a method that aims at reducing the risk of going outside of the client’s expectations by delivering perfect products and services on a consistent basis. It will focus on all types of processes owing to organization complexity and process internalization.
This training is divided into two parts. The lean management part (2 days) of the training refers to value preservation focusing on eliminating non-value added (waste) resources or activities. The Six Sigma part (4 days) is a set of techniques and tools used for process improvement.
Part 1 – Lean Thinking (Business Game) – 2 days
Kicking our Lean Six Sigma Green Belt training off with a little story about Lean principles and TPS (Toyota Production System) shows you the Eastern way of thinking in improving processes. The two days are focused on a Lego Serious Play Production Plant Business Game helping you to understand Lean tools like the Value Stream Map. In this part you will understand value preservation focusing on eliminating non-value added resources or activities (waste) and a set of techniques and tools used for process improvement.
Day 1 :
- Introduction to DMAIC
- Lean vs Six Sigma
- Experimentation on a process implemented in the classroom (« serious game »)
- The ‘3 Voices’ (Voice of the Client, Voice of Business, Voice of Collaborators)
- Measurement of performance (KPI’s): effectiveness (quality) vs efficiency
- Little’s Law
- Value Stream Mapping (VSM)
- 7+1 wastes
- Calculation of the Process Cycle Efficiency (PCE)
- Takt time and Cycle time
- Load chart
- Theory of Constraints (bottlenecks analysis)
Day 2 :
- Process improvement workshop on the process implemented in the classroom
- Line balancing and debottlenecking
- Basic principles of process reengineering
- Calculation of resources staffing
- One piece continuous flow
- Pull production and Kanban (introduction)
- Poka-Yoke (introduction)
- 5S (introduction)
- SMED (introduction)
- Calculation of the Overal Process Efficiency (OPE)
- Kaizen Event
- Toyota Way
Part 2 – Six Sigma and the organization – 4 days
In this Six Sigma part you will discover the aims of reducing the risk of going outside of the client’s quality expectations by delivering perfect products and services on a consistent basis.
All organizations cope with challenges of getting profitable so they stay in business. So how do you deal with it? This section presents you key concepts and the underlying Six Sigma model so you will understand Six Sigma approach and benefits.

Day 4 :
- Measurement System Analysis (MSA) and elements of metrology (resolution, accuracy, precision, linearity, stability)
- Gage R&R
- Voice of Process
- Shape of the distribution and normality test
- Statistical precision of the estimates (confidence intervals)
