Virginia Lean Six Sigma Green Belt Training and Certification
Each expert in a company meets an important role despite the tasks and responsibilities he o she has. Therefore, whenever you are working with Lean Six Sigma or getting introduced to it, keep in mind all belts have their relevance and are crucial, be it a yellow, green belt, or a black one. Of course, companies need to worry about the experts they have working for them due to the importance of implementing Lean Six Sigma correctly. The most common mistake when working with this methodology is to believe that the steps and tools provided by it are all that the organization needs to accomplish process improvement and meet the goals.
However, knowing how to use them and create proper strategies based on the company are crucial aspects. This is when Lean Six Sigma experts with different levels of expertise come as more than useful but rather necessary. Now, if you are a company, how do you know which LSS belt experts you need? In this case, all of them are required. But when it comes to making a decision about what you want to learn about the methodology as a person interested in working with it, you will have to choose one belt at the beginning
A green belt is a great option if you are trying to know the basics but also have more involvement in its implementation. Usually, experts in this level are able to start and manage LSS projects, which is why you will notice that most workers in a company choose this belt above a white or yellow one. However, accessing a green belt can be difficult due to the few companies and experts in Virginia offering the training.
Our role at Lean Six Sigma Experts of Virginia is to make sure you are able to get properly trained and prepared in the methodology in the belt you choose. A green one is not a problem for us and you can complete it in no time. But is a green belt the right choice for you? Besides considering the previous aspects and situations, you get to develop valuable skills that can be used in other areas and job positions, which means a great improvement in your professional life. We highly recommend starting with an LSS green belt if you got the time and some budget for it.
What Can You Lean with A Green Belt?
The belt determines the topics and level of expertise you will obtain in the methodology. therefore, not all belts are the same and you will be focused on certain aspects more than others. While a yellow belt is more about the basics, terminology, principles, and concepts, a green belt will be focused on how you can actually start working and implementing the methodology. For it, it is crucial to address topics and elements such as Six Sigma main tools, DMAIC, SIPOC, and other aspects that consist more on the implementation process.
There is a lot involved but more than knowledge and theory, we want to make sure to develop the required skills to be able to work with Six Sigma properly but also use the knowledge for other job positions or goals. Therefore, expect the green belt training to include sections to develop leadership, problem-solving, and decision-making skills. Most individuals that have gotten trained with us were able to focus on their weaknesses.
In other words, the training we provide is focused on building the perfect LSS expert’s profile in the corresponding belt since we want to make sure that everyone is capable of handling the responsibilities. And when it comes to Lean Six Sigma, many of them appear. With that said, you can have a look at some points in the outline of the green belt course we offer:
