Prerequisites

It is necessary to attend the whole seven-day Yellow & Green-Belt programme (the one-day version of Yellow Belt cannot be attended separately).

  • Yellow Belt – 2 days course, participation required
  • Green Belt – 5 days course, 80% attendance, test and project. Participants are expected to finish the Define and Measure phase including collecting the data. For the Analyse, Improve, Control, they are expected to find root causes, suggest improvement and control mechanisms.

Due to the enrolling procedures, if a delegate wants a globally recognised qualification from ISACA or ASQ, they will need to sit this exam separately. The fee for such an exam is not included in the quoted fee and can be found in the official website of ISACA and ASQ. Attendees will need to book for themselves.

  • Utilise a wide range of tools for the individual phases of the DMAIC cycle (define, measure, analyse, improve, control)
  • Avoid frequent difficulties and understand what steps need to be taken for a project to be successful
  • Learn how to understand “the voice of the client”, to transform his requirements into a company process model and, last but not least, systematically eliminate features not bringing value to your clients
  • Learn to utilise basic Lean Six Sigma statistical methods for process capability calculations and to interpret outputs and control charts correctly
  • Map processes at more levels
  • Manage to create a Lean Six Sigma project plan and communicate it correctly with all parties involved
  • Learn how to draw up projects, that will contribute and be sustainable in the long term.
