About the course
Six Sigma is the comprehensive business improvement strategy made famous by organisations such as Motorola, General Electric, Honeywell and others, which has been used to generate significant improvements in business performance.
Lean, which is derived from the principles of the Toyota Production System, focuses on waste reduction, maximisation of value and building a culture in which continuous improvement and excellence becomes everyone's responsibility.
Combining Lean and Six Sigma provides a powerful methodology for improving productivity, increasing customer satisfaction and reducing operational costs.
In Lean Six Sigma organisations, it is Green Belts who lead and contribute to the majority of improvement teams. This Oxford training program will provide participants with the level of knowledge and skill required to achieve accreditation at the Green Belt level.
To achieve accreditation at the Lean Six Sigma Green Belt level, participants will be required to submit a report detailing a project that they have undertaken. This project must be sponsored by a manager from their organisation who will verify that the project is worthwhile and original. The project must demonstrate competent application of appropriate Green Belt level techniques.

- Solve problems using the DMAIC (Define-Measure-Analyse-Improve-Control) methodology
- Optimise process balance and flow
- Apply statistical measurement and data analysis technique
- Perform Root Cause Analysis
- Apply Lean concepts
- Implement a project to achieve Lean Six Sigma Green Belt accreditation
- The DMAIC methodology
- The Use of Tools at each DMAIC phase
- Measurement and Statistical Techniques
- Flow Management and Lean Work Management
- Sources of Variation and Root Cause Analysis
- Statistical Distributions and Significance Testing
- Design for Six Sigma
- Lean Six Sigma Roles and Responsibilities
- Leading a Lean Six Sigma Project
- Green Belt Accredication
Who should attend
The Green Belt is the key contributor and driver of the continuous improvement process at the operational level. The best candidates for Green Belt training are typically employees at any level who have an interest in improving the organisation. This can include:
- Senior Managers who may wish to participant in the occasional high level project and use their knowledge of Lean Six Sigma concepts, tools and techniques to improve their understanding of the business and improve their problem solving and decision making skills
