Lean six Sigma Yellow Belt
This course is designed for participants interested in driving process improvement in their organisation without having to deal with statistical tools.
Participants will learn to identify the differences between Lean and Six Sigma, and understand the compatibility between these two methodologies. Participants will learn tools to reduce waste and improve quality within their own department.
This course will be delivered in an applied learning workshop environment, adopting the Action Learning methodology to increase the rate of transferring from knowledge acquisition to skill application. The emphasis is on learning by doing, not learning by listening. Over the two days, participants will learn and apply the Lean Six Sigma methodology and tools to improve a simulated process.
As a way to enhance learning, participants will be provided with a process improvement kit and given a week between Day 1 and Day 2 to apply the classroom knowledge to “lean” their process by reducing operational waste at their workplace.
