Lean Six Sigma Green Belt 2106
09/01/2020 - 11/05/2020

The Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering in partnership with the Organizational Performance Office is pleased to offer the Lean Six Sigma Green Belt Certification Program. This program balances Lean tools with the Six Sigma DMAIC methodology and its application with the analytical and statistical tools that serve as a foundation for the implementation of these methodologies. Green Belts are typically involved with improving processes within their specific work area or as a member of a team contributing to a larger scale Black Belt or Master Black Belt project.

The classroom portion runs from 8am until 12pm every Tuesday and Thursday from September 1 to November 15, 2020 . A welcome breakfast for you and your immediate supervisor will be held on Tuesday, September 3 from 8am to 10am to go over the specifics of the program.

Attendance is mandatory and very important to successful completion of the class, as the program covers a large amount of information in a condensed period of time. Participants may miss a maximum of 8.0 hours of class (2 days of on-site training) during the program. Additionally, participants are permitted to attend up to two classes (8.0 hours of class) by Skype, Adobe Connect or some other method of streaming the class to attend virtually.

Participants must earn a 70% cumulative score on the final exam and have 3 months to complete an applied project. After the classroom portion, participants will continue to receive support through short virtual meetings and discussions led by the instructors. After the project is completed, participants will receive a certificate as a Lean Six Sigma Green Belt from the Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering at Arizona State University. A separate graduation date will be scheduled to commemorate this achievement.

Applied Project
The purpose of the project is for the participants to demonstrate an understanding of the material and ability to apply the methods and tools to their work.This is a critical method for ensuring that knowledge has transferred and that the participants will be able to get maximum value from the training. Participants will begin their projects during the class and will have 3 months after the classroom portion to collect data from customers, observe and analyze the process, develop solutions to close performance gaps and then lock down the results.

Project Selection
There are many ways to improve processes and not every project will be a good fit for utilizing Lean Six Sigma methods. Participants will be provided with a list of criteria for projects that tend to be better fit for this methodology, and for beginning Green Belt projects. As the participants conduct more projects and become experienced with these methods, they will be able to take on processes that are more complex and address gaps that may not be exact fits with the Lean Six Sigma methodology.

After completion of the Lean Six Sigma Green Belt Certification Program, process improvement will become a part of the participant's job and regular workloads going forward. Program participants will be equipped with knowledge, a powerful new set of skills, and an eagerness to apply all the tools learned. These skills need to be used regularly to keep them sharp and they ultimately will benefit your organization and those you support.
