Six Sigma Green Belt course focuses on providing students with an understanding of the various Six Sigma tools and techniques useful to improve the production process and minimise defects in the end product with a greater focus on the practical implementation of these tool and techniques in the organisation.
- A highly engaging and interactive course that ensures better internalisation of six sigma concepts and principles.
- Work through the course rather than just listening for higher retention of concepts and theory.
- Group exercises that demonstrate and bring to life the concepts being taught.
- Practical implementation issues are discussed with relevant six sigma tools and techniques.
- A central case-study integrated with all the six sigma concepts that make the participants work through an entire six sigma project.
- Learn to carry out analysis with the help of globally used Minitab software for which online training is provided free for classroom participants.
Upon completion of the Six Sigma Green Belt course, participants will learn how to:
- Identify project selection and evaluation criteria.
- Plan and execute six sigma projects
- Form and effectively lead a six sigma project team.
- Apply DMAIC (Define, Measure, Analyse, Improve, and Control) and various six sigma tools in process and quality improvement.
- Assess and manage project risk.
- Significantly increase profitability through six sigma projects.
- Avoid pitfalls in implementing six sigma.
- Integrate and enhance innovation and problem solving skills
- This course aims to familiarise Participants with the tool and techniques, advantages, and challenges of the Six Sigma methodology.
- Participants will be equipped with the knowledge needed for production process improvement in their organisations and help their organisations adopt Six Sigma methodology.
- Participants are led through simulated case scenarios during which they use Six Sigma concepts for solving simulated problems.
- Participants have knowledge pertaining to and can anticipate issues related to the practical implementation of Six Sigma.
- Participants are armed with the proper tools to address, resolve, and take the lead on production issues in their organisations.
- Participants will develop superior problem solving skills that can be immediately applied in real world projects.
Who should attend
- This course is for employees and organisations requiring a standardised approach to problem solving for the purpose of continuous improvement. This would include team leaders, supervisors, associates, Quality Assurance Engineers, Project Managers, Software Professionals, Practitioners, Quality Assurance team members, Working Executives and Senior Management that will dedicate a small portion of their time applying the DMAIC tools to their natural work area.
- Future managers who want to get certified as Green Belt in Six Sigma.
- Management and Engineering Students who are desirous to be more resourceful and employable.
- Project Management Professionals (PMP) who wants to earn PMI PDUs by learning nuances of Quality paradigm.
- Any other professional members who are doing research, innovations or consulting in process improvement practices.
