Lean six sigma enables all employees to work in collaborative teams to improve process performance and increase customer satisfaction. A Green Belt (GB) project leader is capable of leading a cross-functional team through a series of formal project and problem solving steps. GB projects are short-projects (c. 8 – 20 weeks) that result in customer satisfaction and cost savings or additional revenue for the organization.

    This course is designed to enable all participants, regardless of sector or previous education, to certify as a lean six sigma Green Belt. The course consists of a series of facilitated online live webinars, interactive exercises, assignments and project work. Your knowledge builds in a step wise fashion and you will be supported and encouraged throughout your learning journey.


    The Lean approach to organization management enables all personnel to work in collaborative teams, to error proof and standardize process steps. Customer satisfaction grows & costs fall.

    Six Sigma is a team-based approach to continuous improvement that reduces variation in an organisation’s processes.  Six Sigma combines programme management, team-based project management and problem-solving analysis in the continuous review and revision of processes that deliver value to customers.
