The Lean Six Sigma White Belt certification has been developed exclusively for the Management and Strategy Institute and designed to give the student a brief overview of Six Sigma and Lean principles. This program will cover exactly what Six Sigma is and why it is being used in businesses around the world to streamline operations and eliminate waste.
When a process is operating at a 6 sigma level, it means that the process must not produce more than 3.4 defects per million opportunities. To achieve this level of operational excellence requires organizations to adhere to strict process controls. A Six Sigma project uses a 5-step process called the DMAIC method to evaluate and improve processes within an organization. This stands for Define, Measure, Analyze, Improve, Control.
Six Sigma uses a series of "belts" to help differentiate the different roles that people will undertake during a project. These belts range from White to Master Black Belt. Each belt holder has a different, but equally important role within an improvement project. They must all work in unison, have an open line of communication, and work well as a team.
This certification is perfect for individuals who are looking to learn more about Lean Six Sigma and process improvement. This course consists of a 20-minute training program and a 15-question certification exam. Upon completion of the exam, you will have immediate access to a digital certificate showing your certification status. Because we are offering this course for free, it does not include a physical certificate or transcripts.
