Overview

The Lean Six Sigma Yellow Belt training is designed to provide delegates with a good understanding of the basic Lean Six Sigma methods and prepare them not only to participate as contributors to Lean Six Sigma projects, but also to start to address simple improvements in their own working area. Yellow Belts are not experts in the methodology, but understand the activities, deliverables and key concepts of Team problem-solving.

Yellow Belts are expected to improve processes in their own day-to-day work processes and provide Subject Matter Expertise to support Green and Black Belts. Following the use of the Lean Six Sigma methodology for several months, Yellow Belts can choose to continue on their Lean Six Sigma journey by attending the Green Belt training (LSSPGB). This will provide a refresher to what they have learnt and develop a greater understanding of the methodology by introducing more tools. The Green Belt also offers the opportunity for certification.
