Six Sigma Green Belt Training
Adaptive’s Six Sigma curricula were designed by GE-certified Master Black Belts, with an emphasis not only on the traditional elements of a Six Sigma course, but also the practical elements required for making real-world business improvements, such as change acceleration techniques. This 5-day (40 hour) course provides students with basic understanding of the theory and application of the Six Sigma DMAIC (Define, Measure, Analyze, Improve, Control) principles and tools. Students will also gain an understanding of Lean methodology, and how Six Sigma principles can be effectively integrated into a Lean-thinking organization. The class consists of both lecture and practical application of the methodology and tools, using a case study.
Students who successfully complete this course will be able to:
- Effectively support, and potentially lead, small scale business process improvement efforts utilizing Six Sigma problem solving methodology with direct guidance from a Six Sigma Black Belt.
- Gain a conversational level of knowledge and understanding of each the five phases of the DMAIC process and their respective phase deliverables.
- Understand the various organizational models and operating mechanisms an organization may utilize, in order to maximize Six Sigma’s effectiveness within an organization.
- Understand the term Lean, and the relationship between Lean and Six Sigma methodologies.
- Utilize the industry leading statistical software application, Minitab™, to solve business problems.
Students who complete the class and score 70% or better on the 85 question exam will receive a Green Belt training completion certificate. Students who choose to complete a Six Sigma project, reviewed and approved by an Adaptive trainer, will receive an Adaptive Six Sigma Green Belt certification and corresponding plaque.
All classes include training materials, test, completion certificate. Public classes include up to 6 hours of project mentoring, continental breakfast and lunch.
Adaptive disclaimer: Regardless of “methodology”, maximum training benefit and ROI will not be realized without a defined strategy, an engaged leadership team, a culture centered around process improvement, and strong management and accountability system to help execute and sustain the changes.
