About the course
Six Sigma is a disciplined, data-driven approach to eliminating defects in any process - from manufacturing to transactional - and in products and services. The measurement-based Six Sigma methodology focuses on process improvement and variation reduction by applying a set of statistical, analytical and problem solving tools and techniques. The Six Sigma Green Belt Certificate Program focuses on creating a high performance organization through a mindset and culture shift that eliminates marginal methods used in the past and replaces them with a set of tools that continually produce exceptional results. The measurement-based Six Sigma methodology focuses on process improvement and variation reduction by applying a set of simple, yet sophisticated, statistical, analytical and problem solving techniques. This 16-week program includes lab time, instruction and application of the Six Sigma way of process improvement. You are required to successfully complete a continuous improvement project in order to receive a certificate.
You will acquire the abilities and skills to implement Six Sigma effectively and economically, learn how to play a key role in a Six Sigma transformation initiative, and become highly visible to top management as a leader in this area.
