About this course

Tech Type Performance
Course Code LSSBB
Duration 10 Days

This ten day course provides the experienced Green Belt with the necessary tools and techniques to manage improvement resources to deliver major projects. This hands-on learning experience develops both the delegate's technical knowledge and personal skills. The course uses a blend of theory and practical exercises to ensure that participants have the confidence and capability to deliver more complex business improvement projects and transformations.

Lean and Six Sigma, both proven business improvement approaches, provide businesses with the ability to maximise customer, employee and shareholder value by minimising process variation and waste. The examination, Lean Six Sigma Black Belt, is taken on the final day.

Please note: To book this course you need to book on the individual weeks required.
