The Six Sigma Lean Green Belt Certification with IT concentration, developed exclusively for the Management and Strategy Institute, is designed to give the student a solid understanding of Lean Six Sigma principles within the IT industry. It teaches you how to effectively work within a Six Sigma team, learn to improve quality and reduce defects within your organization, while also learning Lean principles.
Many of the country’s largest IT organizations are looking to trim unneeded operations and processes from within. Six Sigma gives companies a very precise way to demonstrate the real value of technology while improving costs. The IT industry is uniquely positioned to take full advantage of Six Sigma processes because like Six Sigma, IT is data-driven. Using the DMAIC method in conjunction with the data-rich resources of IT often means that projects are completed faster and are more successful.
Green Belts, under the direction of Black Belts, can often use their skills and knowledge to apply Six Sigma at minimum time and cost to the organization. This leads to savings for the company with very little interference in the day-to-day operations. The IT industry is also a prime industry for the introduction of DFSS principles because new processes and procedures are continually implemented. Green Belts are positioned to work on both standard and DFSS projects within the IT industry.
We also offer a Six Sigma Green Belt Certification and Six Sigma Lean Green Belt Certification without the IT component for those who do not want their certification to have an Information Technology concentration.
