The Six Sigma Green Belt Certification course developed exclusively for the Management and Strategy Institute is designed to give the student a solid understanding of Six Sigma principles and teach you how to effectively work within a Six Sigma team. Learn to improve quality and reduce defects within your organization.
Six Sigma Green Belts should have a good understanding of the DMAIC process and an understanding of how process changes can be implemented. They work directly with Black Belts to define processes within their organization. They begin by determining who is the owner of the process they are working to improve. This is the single individual or group with responsibility for the end-to-end process. Next they define the scope, boundaries, or limitations for the process. The final step is to develop a high level process map which shows the start and end points of the process.
You’ll learn about SIPOC diagrams and Critical-to-Quality (CTQ) elements like Cost, process, safety, and delivery. You’ll also gain an understanding of the Cost of Poor Quality (COPQ) and how it is measured in different industries. Green Belts must have a strong understanding of who your customers are and what is important to them. Understanding customer feedback through the Voice of the Customer (VOC) and determining the requirements for your product. Prioritizing issues related to your product, you’ll work to determine internal processes and what causes variation.
