Lean Six Sigma Yellow Belt Training and Certification
Acquire the skills to participate and contribute to Lean Six Sigma projects.
Why Choose Our Lean Six Sigma Yellow Belt Certification?
A Certified Lean Six Sigma Yellow Belt is a professional who has gained a foundational understanding of the Lean Six Sigma methodology, capable of participating in and contributing to Lean Six Sigma projects within an organization. Yellow Belts typically work as part of a Lean Six Sigma team to support process improvement projects led by Green or Black Belts.
Yellow Belts are introduced to the DMAIC methodology – Define, Measure, Analyze, Improve, and Control. Their training helps them understand problems, contribute to data collection, and participate in root cause analysis under the guidance of a project lead. They also learn about the role of various Lean Six Sigma tools and techniques in improving processes.
Lean Six Sigma Yellow Belts are familiarized with basic statistical tools for data analysis and interpretation, and they learn about standard Six Sigma tools like process mapping and Pareto charts to contribute to process improvement efforts.
Yellow Belts are also introduced to Lean principles such as value stream mapping, 5S, and Kaizen to understand how these principles can optimize processes, eliminate waste, and improve flow. They acquire foundational problem-solving skills and are introduced to techniques like Failure Mode and Effects Analysis (FMEA), and Root Cause Analysis (RCA).
Lean Six Sigma Yellow Belts at the Pyzdek Institute complete 40 hours of training, and pass a proctored, comprehensive, timed exam.
