Lean Six Sigma Yellow Belt

Course Overview

All businesses experience variation which impacts process stability, predictability and capability. In addition to costly scrap and rework, variation can also impact a business’s ability to ship product and services on time.

By reducing and controlling process variation, quality levels can be improved, and the associated costs reduced freeing up valuable resource to work on future development and growth.

Six Sigma training is a mathematical method used to improve a business’s performance. It is also a methodology, a philosophy and a way of doing business used by many of the World’s most successful companies.

The programme is conducted over 5 defined phases known as DMAIC (Define, Measure, Analyse, Improve and Control). The terms Yellow Belt, Green Belt, Black Belt and Master Black Belt refer to the skill level and training received by the practitioner.
