Six Sigma Green Belt

Six Sigma Green Belt

Six Sigma is a disciplined, data-driven approach and methodology for eliminating defects in any process—from manufacturing to transactional and from product to service.

It is a measurement-based methodology that focuses on process improvement and variation reduction. It is based on the organized application of a set of statistical/analytical and problem solving tools/techniques.

Overview

Six Sigma is all about mindset and culture shift that eliminates the marginal methods that have been used in the past and replacing them with a set of simple yet sophisticated statistical/analytical tools that continually produce exceptional results in how processes operate. It helps to create a high performance organization.

This is a 4days certificate program consisting of 6 modules that is designed to teach the six sigma way of process improvement. Each module contains theory followed by case studies These sessions include group time and teaching/applying the Six Sigma body of knowledge including:

  • The identification of core processes
  • Defining customer requirements
  • Measuring current performance
  • Defining opportunities for improvement
  • Measuring the relevant processes requiring improvement
  • Gathering and analyzing the data required to investigate causes
  • Improving, controlling, and redesigning the processes.

Benefits to the individual

  • Acquire the necessary abilities and skills to implement six sigma effectively and economically.
  • Acquire certification in a set of management disciplines that are fast-becoming indispensable to meeting world-class standards of performance.
  • In firms undertaking the six sigma transformation, this program equips participants to play a major role in its initiation and implementation.
  • Acquire the prerequisites for accepting a leadership role in six sigma transformations.
  • Acquire the understanding and skills required be a high impact player in the six sigma transformations.
  • Become highly visible to top management as a result of participation in successful six sigma transformations.

Benefits to the company

  • Develop a core group of managers and professional personnel who can work as a team in the implementation of six sigma.
  • Develop a comprehensive and integrated approach to six sigma that takes in to account the necessary training required in all functions and at all levels within the organization.
  • Develop an approach to six sigma that is appropriate for the management team, resources, technology, and work force of the organization.
  • Develop a more accountable and responsible management group capable of becoming industry leaders.
  • Become more effective operationally in the following ways:
    • Shorter cycle times for all key processes.
    • Striving for and/or meeting six sigma quality standards
    • Continuous cost reduction based on continuous process improvements
    • Increased productivity as both management, staff, and workforce become more disciplined in the six sigma methodology
    • Synchronous work flow based on more effective process linkage
    • Elimination of waiting time within and between processes
    • Waste reduction resulting from meeting more demanding performance standards
    • Improved customer service based on more robust and dependable process designs
    • More efficient use of resources resulting from both improved process designs and better management practices
    • Elimination of “silo management” in the organization structure
