Lean Six Sigma Green Belt Training

Also known as Business Improvement Techniques (Green Belt), Coaching For Change deliver Lean Six Sigma Green Belt training internally for clients. We tailor our approach for each client, whether you are in the public or private sector.

Who Is The Training For?

If you want to reduce your reliance on expensive external consultancy services and retain skills in-house, this training is ideal for you.

This course is recommended if you and your organisation are committed to implementing Lean Six Sigma and would like to achieve a high level of practical knowledge through applying learning and accountability for action.

We typically work with companies who:

  • Need to reduce waste and variation in their processes to improve performance and maintain a competitive edge.
  • Have sent individuals on specific training courses but not seen the skills acquired used effectively upon return to the workplace.
  • Don’t have the capacity or skills to know where to start with a waste reduction program.

At the end of the program your company would see a return from the training via successful project delivery. Your company will acquire skills to replicate the methodology on other projects to improve performance. Individual confidence and morale will be lifted by achievement and recognition in driving out waste and variation associated with a real project.
