Green Belt Selection & Training

The following is an excerpt on Six Sigma implementation and the Six Sigma steps from Six Sigma Demystified (2011, McGraw-Hill) by Paul Keller .

KSA Requirements for Green Belts

The role of green belts is to provide local process expertise to a team and to facilitate the brainstorming and data-acquisition activities of the team. Unlike black belts , who leave their operational duties behind, green belts “keep their day job.” Likely green belt candidates include process supervisors, operators or clerical staff, technicians, and any other individual who may wish to serve on a project team. Eventually, most employees will achieve green belt status.

For the initial waves of training, select green belts who can provide the necessary process expertise to the previously selected black belt projects. These green belt candidates should be respected by their peers and capable of critical thinking in a positive fashion with a diverse team.

Green Belt Training

Green belts will learn the basics of the tools used by the project team. Their training will be “a mile wide and an inch deep.” While they will rely on project black belts for problem-solving skills, it is important that they understand at least the need for the tools, if not the general DMAIC problem-solving methodology. For example, as process supervisors, they may be under pressure by the project team to conduct designed experiments to learn about significant process variables. If they have no experience with designed experiments, they may resist these necessary analysis steps.

The green belt training typically is a one-week course that provides an overview of the Six Sigma concepts and tools. It allows the green belts to speak the language of the black belts so that they understand the need for and application of the various tools. Perhaps most important, green belts learn how to function effectively on a team. These team-building skills will ensure that the project team stays focused and maintains momentum.

A suggested schedule for green belt training is shown in Table 2.4 . Workshops are used, rather than detailed instruction, to demonstrate data-analysis methods.

Green belts also can be certified using a simple evaluation of their KSAs relative to the training discussed earlier. Rather than having a detailed understanding of the application of tools, green belts are required only to recognize the need for such analysis. Being an active member of two or more Six Sigma projects generally is required to demonstrate successful application of the KSAs.

In some organizations, green belts are designated project leaders, responsible for completing one to five projects per year. This is not a preferred approach for the following reasons:

Organizations choosing to increase the number of projects by using green belts as Six Sigma project leaders will need to address these concerns to prevent an inordinate number of failed projects either because processes are not fully optimized (from lack of proper analysis) or because projects are not completed in a reasonable time (owing to a lack of available project leadership resources). Green belts can serve as effective Six Sigma project leaders when

This last issue is often difficult to address in practice because operational responsibilities often take precedence. For these reasons, a preferred strategy is for full-time black belts to lead projects.

About Selecting Good Green Belt Projects

We train green belts to systematically work with methods and tools, to improve complex processes, to solve sophisticated problems and for driving a culture of data- & facts-based decision taking. this training is a great enabler for leadership roles..

You potentially need more than one method to tackle a “Green Belt Project” and at the project outset, it is not clear which method and sequence of tools to use. All companies face these types of problems and challenges. Consequently, we train Green Belts: they are the ones who will work systematically, picking techniques from a proven and powerful toolbox.

Simply learning the approach and the tools is not sufficient; it is also important to gain experience applying the tools. The training builds the foundation for practical competence. Accordingly, all Green Belts need to lead a Green Belt project in parallel to their training. They will be tasked with a mission to apply the tools (hard stuff), with the teams they don’t formally manage (soft stuff). Running the projects in parallel with the training enables timely feedback and supports the learning experience.

So, what makes a good Green Belt project?

Based on the need for a problem that requires the application of several methods & tools, we’ve derived the following project selection criteria:

  • The solution to the problem is opaque. Meaning, the solution to this problem/challenge it is NOT evident. Moreover, the project cannot simply be about implementing an already-known solution. A litmus test: the answer to the question “how can we solve this issue?” should be a feeling of: “We have no clue how to solve this problem. We understand the challenge, but we do not know how to tackle it.”
  • The problem/situation requires further investigation. Some of the analytical Lean Six Sigma tools will be required.

We want to support our trainees in achieving results and being successful. Green Belts should have the time to oversee their projects and learn how the application of the method generates deliverables. Let’s also consider the following when selecting the project:

  • It should be possible to complete the project within three-to-six months ; implementation of improvements should be possible within 3-6 months. The last phase of a Green Belt Project is always the Control phase, in which the Green Belt must prove that the results are sustainable. This phase may exceed this 3-6 month window.

If you believe your project idea will definitely take longer, then scope it more narrowly.

Helpful Hint: Given that Green Belts focus on process improvement, if you are considering processes that do not cycle often, e.g. annual accounts, or. a product that is only produced once a year, it will be impossible to develop and prove a solution within three months.

  • Thus, it is important that the process in focus cycles often.

So far, we have considered criteria to ensure abundant learning on the project. Even more important from our experience is to select projects according to business needs. Pursuing a Green Belt project will demonstrate to both the trainees and to the organization that Lean Six Sigma is an effective approach for mastering problems…NOT simply a nice-to-have toolkit to apply to non-relevant problems. Our advice is to:

  • Select projects based on clearly-defined, relevant business issues that are crucial to the organization.
  • Select problems which need to be tackled regardless of the Green Belt program.

Selecting relevant, crucial business issues that need to be solved regardless of the Green Belt program will ideally contribute to both supporting the Green Belt’s attention on the project and to avoiding a mid-stream change in priorities. You want a project that the organization cares about solving.

  • The project sponsor must be committed to project success.

We have a great track record of successful Green Belt projects for which project success was well aligned with the sponsor’s goals.

Following this criteria will help prepare you very well for your Green Belt projects. That said, we know that real-life priorities can change for good reasons. And often new discoveries during a project lead to rethinking the project definition. Our approach and the Lean Six Sigma Toolbox will also help to master such changes and redefinitions of a Green Belt project.

Good luck with your Green Belt Projects and have fun! Do not hesitate to contact us if you would like to discuss a specific challenge!

Six Sigma Green Belt Certification Training FAQs in Mountain View, CA

What is Six Sigma? Six Sigma is a rigorous and proven business methodology that uses data and statistical analysis to improve business performance. With the goal of increasing profits by eliminating mistakes, waste, and rework, Six Sigma provides a means to identify and prevent process variation-or defects-to improve predictability and success of business processes. Why Six Sigma Certification? Six Sigma certification confirms a level of training, practice, and capability with respect to specific competencies. Though requirements for each Six Sigma certification level are different, each requires training, and each participant, called a "Belt", is required to have a leadership-approved project prior to Six Sigma certification training. What Are The Six Sigma Certifications? Six Sigma Green Belts have received two days of training on the Six Sigma road map and essential elements of statistical methodologies supporting Six Sigma projects. Green Belts allocate up to 50% of their time on Six Sigma projects, and Black Belts assist them with projects as needed. Six Sigma Black Belts are technical leaders who have received four days of training focusing on the Six Sigma road map and extensive statistical methodologies. Black Belts normally dedicate up to 75% of their time to Six Sigma projects, and they assist Green Belts as needed. Green Belt certification is required for Black Belt certification eligibility. Six Sigma Master Black Belts represent the highest level of technical and organizational proficiency. They have received six days of training on the Six Sigma methodology, and they've learned the skills and tools required to teach Six Sigma philosophies and implement Six Sigma within an organization. Master Black Belts lead all levels of Six Sigma projects, and they help Black Belts apply methodology when necessary. Their jobs are completely devoted to Six Sigma. Black Belt certification is necessary for Master Black Belt certification eligibility.

Course FAQs

Who should attend this lean green belt course.

Those who need to gain an in-depth understanding for working on Lean teams and projects with the ability to influence the team leader on project selection and metrics for success. A green belt will have the ability to assist yellow belt team members and be able to effectively communicate goals and methods to achieve positive outcomes.

How is this Lean Green Belt different from the Lean Six Sigma Green Belt?

Both trainings introduce a deeper dive into the project selection and metrics necessary to affect continuous improvement in any organization. The addition of “Six Sigma” adds mathematical complexity to reach a higher level of excellence in process-improvement through the use of data analysis. Lean Six Sigma Green Belt utilizes Minitab as the defacto industry standard statistical analysis package. Familiarity and working knowledge of basic algebra is required for the Lean Six Sigma Green Belt, not the Lean Green Belt.

How do I write the Lean Green Belt exam to become certified?

The exam is given in the form of a take home test and case study.

Can I bring this Lean Green Belt course to my facility to get my team certified?

Yes! We know your busy work schedule may prevent you from getting to one of our classrooms which is why we offer convenient online training to meet your needs wherever you want. This course is available online or as Private Team Training.

What is Six Sigma Green Belt?

Six Sigma Green Belt is a certification course wherein participants will receive an introduction on tools and methods that are essential to participate in DMIAC improvement projects. This course focuses on the basic structure of DMAIC. By taking up this certification course professionals can identify the problems and implement solutions to eradicate them.

Who is it for?

Six Sigma is a people?driven process. The Six Sigma project performance level tends to match the level of persistence, expertise, and commitment of the individual members of the team. While reviewing the roles that contribute to the project, most of them think about the champion and Black Belts roles to deploy the project. However, to improve the performance of the projects, Green Belts will also play a critical role in the process improvement.

Green belts are skilled team players and their aim is to improve process quality. They help to bridge the gap between the Six Sigma theory and real-world application. Six Sigma Green Belt candidates play a vital role in improving the process, data inspection or Project Management. Green Belt training teaches candidates the basic tools used by a project team and how to apply DMAIC skills that relate to a Six Sigma project.

Is It Right for you?

Six Sigma certification is for individuals who are interested in the terminologies such as continuous improvement and waste reduction and work experience in any supply chain or business management. Six Sigma certification helps the professionals to boost their subject matter proficiency which leads to increase desirability by employers and salary. This certification for professionals is responsible for controlling costs, improving outputs and contributing to better results.

These are some prerequisites need to become a Six Sigma Green Belt :
