    Lean Six Sigma Yellow Belt

    Lean Six Sigma can be compared to a marathon runner: a professional athlete may analyse their performance to identify and remove any unnecessary actions or inefficiencies with the goal of improving their performance in both time and success.

    The Lean Six Sigma methodology is a globally recognised management approach to business performance improvement that has blended the individual specialisms of Lean and Six Sigma: the focus of Lean is on speed, efficiency, and removing waste from the process, while Six Sigma centres on effectiveness and the removal of errors.

    The Lean Six Sigma Yellow Belt offers an introductory basis for developing your skills as a team leader or team member that seeks to resolve inefficiencies or solve problems in a way that maximises results and minimises waste. You can run smaller improvement projects with this certification before working your way up to more senior prospects.

    Once completing their Lean Six Sigma Yellow Belt, most students looking to become specialists progress to the Lean Six Sigma Green Belt and validate their skills as credible Process Improvement Professionals.
