Six Sigma Green Belt

Accelerate the scope, reach and success of your process improvement methods.

Six Sigma emphasises quality improvement, but is about more than just statistics and tools. The Six Sigma methodology is a systematic application that is focused on achieving bottom line financial improvements and increasing customer satisfaction. When properly applied on carefully selected business projects, Six Sigma can lead to significant reduction in and often eliminates altogether, defective processes. That improvement translates directly to immediate and dramatic financial profitability.

Our recently redesigned course developed to meet the University of South Australia and American Society for Quality (ASQ) accreditation requirements, now incorporates Lean and Six Sigma methodologies, and brings both Green and Black Belt course participants together for the 2 week program

Six Sigma Green Belts provide value to sponsoring organisations in several ways. They serve as the work team for Black Belt projects, collecting and analysing data, developing process maps and in carrying out design of analysis and experiments. These activities serve both as support and accelerate progress in every project to help maximise the organisation's return on investment, adding capacity and greater numbers of breakthrough improvement projects.

Green Belts are often referred to as the engine room of Six Sigma projects. They are often assigned specific improvement projects, within the scope of their normal day to day duties that require an intermediate level of applied statistical analysis.

This course is conducted in two, five day sessions with approximately four weeks between the sessions. Each participant is expected to complete or partially complete a Six Sigma DMAIC project that has the potential to deliver real improvements.

Bonus: Attendees can apply for credit for one course in the Master of Management program at UniSA on satisfactorily completing the program and ASQ exam and meeting university entry requirements.
