The Lean Service Yellow Belt Program is designed to address the growing need for an alternative solution to fight a wide range of problems, from eliminating backlogs to reducing rework & errors (to deliver more with less), in both the public and private sectors. The goal of the Yellow Belt program is to develop the skill set and techniques for stakeholders to participate in optimization projects, for sponsors to support Lean teams and to efficiently transition to a Lean culture and environment.
