Learn Proven Methods for Developing a LSS Culture in Your Organization

This two week course provides Green Belt Candidates with a solid understanding of Six Sigma principles, the “DMAIC” project roadmap and the key improvement tools and methodologies that are used within that roadmap. The class is delivered in two five day segments. The second five day segment is typically delivered two weeks after completion of the first segment. This time period allows the candidate time to obtain internal approval for the improvement project and to begin initial data collection and measurement using techniques learned in the first segment. Students capable of making all tollgate reviews will be given a Green Belt certification during the final week. Students requiring additional time will submit their materials electronically after completion of the program.

The MSI approach to Green Belt Training places more emphasis upon “Kaizen” or continuous improvement methods and incorporates MSI's hybrid training methodology which is based upon action learning and the Toyota University approach to training.  Trainees receive a combination of classroom and job site training so they employ useful tools directly to their work.  It is part of our philosophy that Green Belts in their large numbers throughout the organization are critical to the cultural change that leads to the lofty goal of being a Toyota like organization. Our approach is to create Green Belts capable of sustaining and improving Quality rather than half way pre-paring them to conduct full DMAIC projects. This is of far greater benefit to the individual and the organization.

This knowledge will enable the candidates to serve as active contributors on a Six Sigma project, to conduct analysis on their production processes, and most importantly will arm the Green Belt with the tools and knowledge for continuous improvement of their processes.
