Lean Six Sigma Training - Green Belt Classroom Overview

Our CEPAS accredited Lean Six Sigma Green Belt classroom courses are taught by experienced professionals who hold practical industry knowledge of utilising the Lean Six Sigma methodology, so you can be assured of the quality of training you receive and knowledge you take from the course.

Understanding the benefits of Lean Six Sigma 

Lean Six Sigma was developed to help improve productivity, reduce operational costs and increase overall customer satisfaction. 

Lean methodologies maximise customer value while minimising process wastage. This enhances customer satisfaction levels and reduces wasted resources. Six Sigma methodologies provide the means to continually reduce process, and product variation, through a defined project approach. 

When these two Project Management methodologies are combined, the benefits experienced are typically a reduction in costs, increase in staff morale, retained business, and an increase in customer satisfaction. 

The international standard for both Lean and Six Sigma is ISO 18404:2015, which defines the management systems requirements for successfully managing and implementing Lean and Six Sigma. It also provides the necessary competencies for people applying and adopting the two approaches.  

Professionals with Lean Six Sigma certifications remain in high demand from employers. This is mainly due to their ability to successfully utilise problem-solving techniques to create business solutions while saving costs and ensuring higher customer satisfaction. Lean Six Sigma professionals also provide overall business efficiency improvements and quality control throughout.
