Lean Six Sigma Green Belt Program

Learn to use Lean and Six Sigma principles to improve quality and processes.

GK# 2356


Course Overview


This blended-learning program utilizes a combination of online and in-class sessions to deliver a comprehensive Lean Six Sigma program at the Green Belt certification level. This program was developed by McMaster University with the expertise of a Master Black Belt and the guidance of an advisory panel of Lean Six employers from the health, manufacturing, financial, telecommunications, and academic sectors.

In this program, you will gain a deep understanding of quality and process improvement using Lean and Six Sigma principles, with an emphasis on leadership and collaborative work environment strategies. Working with a Master Black Belt instructor, you will learn to select, plan, and execute projects and put the DMAIC principles of process improvement into practice using the road map, tools, and methods that successfully drive improved process solutions.  You will work on a live project during the program, explore statistical software (such as Minitab), and will also learn how to manually calculate in the absence of these tools.

Learning includes guided discussions, case studies, individual and group exercises, and strategies to successfully execute a live project. You will also have an opportunity to visit a Lean Six Sigma organization.
