A Case Western Reserve University professional development instructor teaches a class

Lean Six Sigma Green Belt Certification available

Members of the Case Western Reserve University community are invited to consider Lean Six Sigma Green Belt Certification, offered by Weatherhead School of Management’s Executive Education program, beginning Wednesday, April 6.

Lean Six Sigma is a method that relies on a collaborative team effort to improve performance by systematically removing waste and reducing variation.

Weatherhead’s Lean Six Sigma Green Belt Certification training is a five-day program that will provide participants with enhanced problem-solving skills. They will learn methodologies to be more efficient and effective by reducing waste, errors, and re-work—as well as freeing up critical resources that can then be leveraged elsewhere.  During the project, attendees will receive two hours of coaching in support of their project work to ensure they are able to successfully apply the learning.

Topics include:

  • The basics of communicating a Lean Six Sigma strategy
  • Integrating Six Sigma with Lean Manufacturing, TOC (Theory of Constraints), and other improvement methodologies 
  • How, What and Why of applying the DMAIC (Define, Measure, Analyze, Improve and Control) improvement process 
  • Selecting successful Six Sigma projects and project teams
  • Modeling and map organization processes for practical analysis, including product and process flows, and value streams
  • Defining appropriate data collection methods
  • Selecting the right statistical tools and applying them to problem solving
  • Overview of statistical process control
  • Planning and executing projects
  • Overview and summary of change management
