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.
|4-6||Six Sigma Green Belt||Solving complex quality problems – Basic level|
|3||Six Sigma Green Belt|
Solving simple statistical quality problems
Lean Six Sigma deployment
|1-2||Lean Management||Problem-solving of activity flows|
Lean Thinking (Business Game)
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.
