What is a Lean Six Sigma Yellow Belt?

Businesses all over the world suffer from the unnecessary expense and holdups associated with operational inefficiencies. Poor communication, ineffective structures, problems with manufacturing and complicated project life cycles all contribute to wasted effort and money. As such, many businesses can benefit from the direction of a skilled process improvement professional.

Lean Six Sigma is designed as a program that helps businesses train their leaders and process improvement teams to deliver positive change in their organisations. A stronger bottom line, happier customers and satisfied employees are just a few of the benefits of applying Lean and Six Sigma teachings to your business.

Our Yellow Belt course is designed to introduce your teams to Lean Six Sigma, and if you would like to improve your business’ efficiency it is an excellent starting point.

Who Should Become a Lean Six Sigma Yellow Belt

While Lean Six Sigma Yellow Belt classes are an effective introduction to Six Sigma and Lean concepts, the course is primarily designed to provide a mid-level understanding of the tools and techniques involved. For that reason, Yellow Belt courses are most effective when they are delivered to professionals with a dedicated interest in process improvement.

Properly applying the techniques involved is best done by team members, team leaders and organisational managers with the power to make real changes through their projects. Regardless, courses offer a warm welcome to employees at all levels of seniority and to professionals wanting to kickstart or further their process improvement careers.

Ultimately, Yellow Belts can expect to take part in process improvement projects or champion process improvement teams, offering support while taking direction from Lean Six Sigma Black Belts.

What Does Training Involve?

Suitable for professionals who are involved in process improvement or who are senior stakeholders in the outcomes, Yellow Belt training is a comprehensive look at Six Sigma and Lean principles.

Attendees are introduced to the discipline from the first principles. Classes include modules that cover what Lean Six Sigma entails, its history, and the tools and methodologies involved in making improvements. As part of the course, students also receive in-depth instruction on how to set project goals and measure the results with help from teammates and direction from leaders. We cover dozens of different methodologies that can be used to help Yellow Belts approach their projects and measure results, and we provide pathways to achieving the outcomes you want.

Can Anyone Become a Yellow Belt?

While Lean Six Sigma Yellow Belt courses deliver in-depth instruction on the relevant tools and methodologies, there are no prerequisites for becoming a Yellow Belt. Anyone who would like to better their management skills or pursue further education in the process improvement field is welcome to attend a Yellow Belt course.

Everything you need to know to get started on projects is included in the course, from defining projects to measuring results, as well as the tools you will need along the way.
