Course Introduction

Lean Six Sigma Green Belt is one of the most sought after qualifications surrounding business analysis. Lean Six Sigma training is a methodology which improves efficiency in different sectors of a business as well as customer service. Improvements can be made due to adjustments through quality management as well as the identification and reduction of defects.

The Lean Six Sigma certification is a variety of techniques to help a business improve their manufacturing structure and other sectors of the business. A combination of two different philosophies make up Lean Six Sigma and Six Sigma. These two philosophies work compatibility for a business to become as efficient as possible . Lean is a process which focuses on waste removal of a business in the manufacturing area of a business. Including Lean, in a business, is important to be able to provide maximum value to the product for the customers. The second aspect of Lean Six Sigma is Six Sigma. Lean Six Sigma Green Belt training is centred around managing the defects of the production process. Six Sigma identifies problems within manufacturing to improve quality of a product through accuracy.

The Lean Six Sigma Green Belt certification is the second stage of the Lean Six Sigma courses. This qualification informs employers that candidates have the ability to become a valuable input within a Lean Six Sigma project. That candidates have sufficient knowledge of the two combined philosophies and how to apply them effectively. This course also provides the skills needed to be able to lead a small Lean Six Sigma project. A consolidation of their ability adds to the qualification that candidates receive at the end of this course as candidates are now in a position to excel in Lean Six Sigma. Further qualifications are also available up until Lean Six Sigma Black Belt.

Course Content

Learning Lean Six Sigma Green Belt in a further depth shows employers that candidates are an acceptable candidate to lead a Lean Six Sigma project. Applying this groundly qualification offers a good understanding of the process and ability to excel further as well as becoming a successful and valuable member of the group.

Lean Six Sigma focuses on the eight different types of waste to improve efficiency of the manufacturing:

  • Overproduction
  • Transportation
  • Motion
  • Defects
  • Inventory
  • Non-Utilized Talent
  • Extra Processing
  • Waiting


Lean Six Sigma Green belt requires the general awareness of Lean Six Sigma which is introduced within the Lean Six Sigma Yellow Belt course. In the Lean Six Sigma Course candidates will acquire skills surrounding tool usage,the principles of lean and DMAIC as well as how to successfully apply these principles. Lean Six Sigma Green Belt is the one of the most intense courses surrounding Lean Six Sigma as candidates will be covering many areas of the methodology and retaining a lot of information. Our highly engaging and interactive courses ensure that knowledge is attained in the most effective of settings.


Principles of Lean



Organizations have to understand the vitality of the value on the customer and not just the product. This means that they need to identify the amount that their target market is willing to pay for the product. Factors that determine this could be the quality, size, aesthetics or materials of the product. By understanding this, the business can focus on how to eliminate excess waste in an operation to maximise profit between customer consumption and expenditures of the business.

The Value Stream

The value stream is a process of assessment. The company needs to identify the overall cost of the product from the manufacturing of raw materials through to the customers disposal of the product. Identifying this helps to eliminate excess waste from the value stream to maximise the worth of the product.


This is a variable that is crucial to ensure there is no buildup of waste. If a process is stopped i.e a value chain, then waste will begin to build up and extra costs begin to occur and increase rapidly.


Keeping track of the production ensures that no excess products are being produced infront of time to decreases excess costs. If production speeds up and produces more than needed, this is considered waste and will start to build up and start to create defects in the flow.


Lean Manufacture leaders set goals throughout the project and when all objectives have been achieved, perfection has been achieved. Elimination of root causes and a flowing system without any production problems, is considered perfection.


Six Sigma Principles


Focus on the customer - A complete focus on the customer's needs and requirements maximises the potential of sales and profit. The target market is where candidates will reply on for their profit, focusing on their needs is an essential principle to success.

Using measurements and statistical analysis -  Collection of data is a crucial part of this principle. Mathematics is a reliable source for assessment. If candidates can apply formulas and identify problems through reading graphs, candidates are able to understand their business. The work has been  done for candidates in many aspects of mathematics, candidates just have to apply the theories to their own work. A useful concept when identifying root causes in a production process.

Eliminating variation - Making sure all guidelines are followed and there is minimum variation within processes, identifies an efficient way of production and how to eliminate excess waste which does not value the customers.

Advanced Control Charts

There are two essential functions of a control chart within an improvement project like Lean Six Sigma. These two elements focus on different aspects of a project, for example stability and control tools. A control chart is a physical  representation of the progress within a project.

Different characteristics identify different components of a project i.e shifts and trends of a process are shown through a line of best fit (central line). A time graph is the main feature of a control graph to allow assessment of improvement and time efficiency. A control chart gives the business the ability to identify the standard deviation and control limits to ensure there is no time wasted when searching for problems within project.

A concept that can be significantly hard to grasp however due to our extremely engaging and helpful courses, we will offer the best advice and guidance we can to help candidates grasp this education.



MSA is an abbreviation for Measurement System Analysis, which is a mathematical method to determine how much a measurement process needs to vary and its overall contribution. There are five different factors that are required to be investigated within MSA.

  • Bias - Prejudice for or against a situation, a measurement without equal measurement.
  • Linearity - A perfect relationship between two qualities represented on a graph in a straight line, therefore directly proportionate.
  • Stability - Having a stable structure.
  • Repeatability - A test using the same components repeatedly  in a short period of time.
  • Reproducibility - An experiment or action that can be taken multiple times with the same results every time.

These are all considered when taking a measurement to ensure that no factors can jeopardise the results. This is usually a repeated process by different members of the team to ensure either a mean of results or exact results. There are percentages that judge the effectiveness of their measurement system and these are considered guidelines to the productivity of the business.



Define - An organization has to define all different aspects of their business, from problems to customers. From customers to opportunity. These are all important to improvement of a business.

Measure - At certain intervals candidates must measure the progress through process performance.Measuring the progress,time and cost of a process helps to set more SMART objectives for the business to decrease defects.

Analyze - By analyzing every aspect of the process candidates will be able to identify some roots causes of the problems candidates are faced with. This will help candidates to apply problem solving techniques that are taught within the Lean aspect of the course. Understanding defects is an important part in this process.

Improve - The ability to improve the progress of a project is a consequence of identifying root causes of the problems and defects within the process. Addressing these problems is when improvements can begin.

Control - Controlling factors that once stopped a process from being successful, will help with the efficiency and quality of the next process.
