Lean Six Sigma is an improvement methodology that effectively combines the principles and practices of Lean and Six Sigma. Six Sigma methodologies identify and remove the basic causes of error in any business process. It aims at minimizing variability and eliminating marginal methods that are used in traditional contexts. Lean is a collection of tools and techniques that reduce wastage and minimize the time required to complete a production or service cycle. By combining the two ideas, organizations can improve quality, cut costs and increase speed dramatically.

Certified Lean Six Sigma Yellow Belts can work as a team member in a Six Sigma Project Team. They are responsible for monitoring and evaluating work progress and process enhancements. They work to support, or under the supervision of a Six Sigma Green Belt or Black Belt. Six Sigma certified professionals work on continual quality improvement by analyzing and solving quality problems, and creating a high performance organization.

This course will give you a basic understanding of Lean Six Sigma and its focus on eliminating defects through process improvement and variation reduction. The course content efficiently covers all of the recognized Lean Six Sigma Yellow Belt topics in a comprehensive manner. Thousands of companies across the world have discovered the far-reaching benefits of this methodology; with this certification you can gain valuable insights into the techniques, metrics and basic improvement methodologies.
