About this Course

This course is the entry level to our suite of Lean Sigma programs and has been developed in line with industry demands for an understanding in staff of a practical approach to problem solving and application of Operational excellence and improvement. The course is unique in blending its practical approach and delivery by academic and industry partners. Lean Sigma is applicable in all industry sectors as a general education. Our clients include Medical Devices, Fisheries, Finance, Healthcare, Software, Charities, Education, Manufacturing and Beverage to name a few sectors.

Lean Sigma is based on the elimination of waste and the reduction of variability in processing through engagement and respect for all staff. The Lean Sigma Yellow Belt course introduces the methods and tools for interpretation of customer requirements for service design and operations in all industry sectors.

A certified Lean Sigma Yellow Belt is a professional who will be capable of applying basic Lean and Six Sigma principles and tools as part of a team to drive improvements and show measurable results. The programme consists of assessment of theory by examination, as well as assessment of practice by portfolio. The portfolio is based on the achievement of class project assignments by candidates. The course draws on both the basic problem-solving tools and waste identification in processes.

The Lean Sigma Yellow Belt is a team player able to contribute to ongoing improvement projects in any workplace. A successful student will be focused on improving quality, cost, delivery, business & service processes and business results. As part of the course online delivered support data is provided for all students.

Industry commitment has been very strong to recognise the strength of staff being supported to attend in a better mindset and strongly support it being delivered on a day schedule and not fully online where practical interaction of workshop elements is not repeatable. It is also seen as a commitment to employee support to attend on work time. The course is a single accreditation and requires no further exams or projects for completion. It has no third party external exams required.

What our Students say:

'The course was very interesting, from learning about the history of Lean and Six Sigma to participating on a project with classmates over the five days. This was very helpful in learning how to apply Lean and Six Sigma. Both the lecturers and study material provided were excellent.'
Susan Barrett, Irish Guide Dogs

'It suited me from a structure and relevant material for what I needed.'

'It is now easy to apply to lots of different applications.'

'The material was excellent, Back-up, books and references were very good.'

'Completely relevant to present day (business) restrictions'
'Easy to participate in.'

'Simple and common-sense approach.'

'Class gave ample opportunity for discussion.'
