The Six Sigma Green Belt course presents an overview of the key concepts for the Six Sigma Green Belt Certification exam. Students will explore processes and team management, operational metrics, and key tools and techniques to achieve process excellence. This course is designed to prepare students to sit for the Six Sigma Green Belt Certification exam offered by the American Association for Quality.
The Six Sigma Green Belt certification helps professionals to strengthen organizations by employing the core concepts of Six Sigma geared toward enhanced problem-solving skills with an emphasis on the DMAIC (Define, Measure, Analyze, Improve, and Control) model. Six Sigma Green Belt professionals are tasked with supporting the project lead, most likely a Six Sigma Black Belt and provides a stepping stone to this advanced classification as well. Successful participants in this class will be poised to work on small, defined Six Sigma projects within an organization requiring less oversight by the assigned manager (presumably a Six Sigma Black Belt). This ability to free up supervisory time reduces costs and increases productivity for entire projects which present significant value to both current and prospective employers.
Participants who complete this course will be able to effectively assist on Six Sigma projects meant to enhance the capability of both internal and external processes in order to better meet customer expectations.
Upon successful completion of this course participants will be able to:
- Justify the value of Six Sigma metrics
- Analyze customer information within a potential Six Sigma project
- Apply the design for Six Sigma (DFSS) process
- Apply theories of team dynamics to improve Six Sigma process
- Apply the Define-Measure-Analyze-Improve-Control (DMAIC) process to a potential project
- Generate process management documentation
