As businesses evolve and transform, change agents are in the forefront who will guide, support and lead. These team leaders are called Lean Six Sigma GREEN BELTS. The Green Belt is equipped with a working knowledge and application of the tools and methodology of Lean and Six Sigma in various operations, effecting incremental reduction in Cost, improvement in Cycle Time, Defect Reduction, Quality improvement , higher efficiency resulting into superior business results.

This program is aimed to train and certify existing Process Experts in the Lean-Six Sigma Green Belt body of knowledge and its application in the workplace.

This 6-day Yellow-Green Belt training and certification workshop program spread over a period of 1 month, will enable the qualified candidate absorb, assimilate and apply the tools and methodology. Relevant exercises and multi-media materials will also be used to ensure adequate knowledge absorption and retention.
