Lean Six Sigma Yellow Belt Course Overview

The Yellow Belt certification is the first belt in the Lean Six Sigma series, thus provides a general introduction to the principles of Lean Six Sigma. This Yellow Belt training course teaches delegates how to work as part of a Lean Six Sigma team, and exist as a support for the more advanced Green and Black Belts.

Although such Lean Six Sigma Green Belts and Lean Six Sigma Black Belts tend to lead Lean Six Sigma projects, team members are the ones who will conduct the research, analysis, and solution development. Therefore, the role Yellow Belts play is of profound importance.

This training course will clarify the team member’s awareness of their responsibilities, and the roles of their team members. This will, in turn, achieve enhanced efficiency of team members, which will produce a boost in performance quality and overall project accomplishments.

Lean Six Sigma is all about improving business processes, thus with the Yellow Belt, delegates will learn the basics of Lean Six Sigma methodologies and how these can be applied in the workplace for the purpose of quality improvement. As the Yellow Belt is the first of the Lean Six Sigma certifications, completion of this qualification ensures access to the higher level belts. Hence, this Yellow Belt course provides a good introduction to the functions and methodology of Lean Six Sigma.
