Welcome to Lean Six Sigma Green Belt!

In this program, you will learn the tools and concepts of Lean and Six Sigma applicable to the diagnostic laboratory. Lean Six Sigma is a data-driven, standard approach to continuous improvement. In this virtual program, we begin by learning the tools and concepts of Lean based the Toyota Production System. Next, we will learn the Six Sigma method called DMAIC or Define, Measure, Analyze, Improve and Control. By applying the Lean Six Sigma method, we identify and eliminate complaints or organizational problems to satisfy the needs and requirements of the customer. You will learn how to use the tools of Lean and Six Sigma to identify, collect and analyze the most appropriate data. We will learn how to define the problem and brainstorm a new solution to eliminate the defective processes. By engaging in this Lean Six Sigma Green Belt course, you will become skilled, knowledgeable and understand how to apply the DMAIC method to any process.

The Green Belt works under the lead of the black belt. The Green Belt is instrumental in the process and will demonstrate the use of quality tools applicable to process improvement in the laboratory. The Six Sigma hierarchy is based on a gradually increasing skill set, similar to martial arts. The practitioner may start at a very basic ‘White Belt’ or ‘Yellow Belt’ Level, followed by a ‘Green Belt’ Level, progressing to a ‘Black Belt’ Level and finally a ‘Master Black Belt’ Level. At a Green Belt level you will be knowledgeable of the core concepts of Lean and Six Sigma; you will be qualified to lead basic improvement projects and participate as a team member on more complex projects led by a Black Belt.
