Lean Six Sigma - IASSC Lean Six Sigma Green Belt Certificate program with Facilitation Skills

6-10 Nov 2017 (Also 4-8 Dec ) - €1,500 per seat
Dublin
44 hours
Purpose: 

This 2 part-program will give you the skills and confidence to use the Lean and Six Sigma tools to improve processes and drive out waste in your organisation.  You'll also learn the essential faciliation skills you'll need to run highly successful Lean Six Sigma projects.  

The first part of this program is an intensive, highly interactive 44 hour classroom lab which will teach you the Lean Six Sigma methodologies and tools through engaging simulation exercises, hands-on practical challenges and the application of the Lean Six Sigma principles to solve real-world problems.  Through case-studies and exercises, you'll learn how to apply the Lean Six Sigma tools, originally designed for manufacturing, into any business, especially service and office based industries.

During the lessons and labs you'll use Lean Six Sigma tools including Statistical Process Control software, a Microsoft Excel tool.  Working through real-life scenarios and practical breakout exercises you'll quickly gain the confidence, knowledge and understanding to interpret and communicat data, graphs and charts.  You will receive a Certificate of Completion - Lean Six Sigma Green Belt Theory at the end of part one.

The second part of this program will require you to complete a project that demonstrates that you have understood and can apply the Lean Six Sigma tools at a Green Belt level.  Green Belt projects take approximately 16 hours to complete.  Trigraph will provide you with mentoring support from a qualified mentor and Lean Six Sigma Black Belt to help you deliver your project.  Trigraph will also provide you with project templates and Lean Six Sigma tool templates.

Upon completion of this project, you will earn your Lean Six Sigma Green Belt Certification.

This program also acts as an intensive exam preparation course for the internationally recognised and respected IASSC certification.  Once you complete this Lean Six Sigma Green Belt program you will be qualified to take the IASSC exam (additional $295).  Should you wish, Trigraph will arrange the exam for you.

If you wish to achieve a HETAC level 7 accreditation, Trigraph can support you too.  Please call for further details.

What is Lean Six Sigma and who is this course suitable for?

Lean Six Sigma focuses on process performance removing waste and non-value add activities striving for a six-sigma level process of 3.4 defects per million opportunities through reduction of variation and data based decision making.

This is achieved through a philosophy to deliver and balance customer value and business profitability by removing wasteful and non-value-added activities from all business processes and products. Variation is reduced resulting in better, faster, lower cost products and services.

Results are delivered through a consistent, powerful methodology for gaining knowledge and problem solving known as DMAIC (Define, Measure, Analyze, Improve and Control)

 

**Note** - A laptop is required for this course with administrator rights to allow you to download the free trial of the add on software required for the week. Once you have registered for the workshop you will receive a link via email to download the Microsoft SPC XL, Statistical Process Control software. You may require support from your organizations IT department to assist with the download.  You may also contact the Trigraph team at +353-1-6390050 or info@trigraph.ie - we will be happy to help.

Exam Information: 

Trigraph is an IASSC Accredited Training Organisation.  As a result students who complete Trigraph's Green Belt Program are qualified to take the IASSC's internationally recognised Lean Six Sigma Certification exams.  As an IASSC Accredited Training Organisation, Trigraph can arrange your certification exam for you.

Suitable for: 

The Lean Six Sigma Green Belt and Facilitation program is primarily aimed at team members tasked to lead project teams, be they local, cross functional and / or cross geographical in nature. These projects are results focused whereby the Green belt with support from the Organization and Project Sponsor challenges the status Quo by promoting critical thinking through the Green Belt being proficient in basic Lean Six Sigma tools and techniques acting as a change agent.

What’s good about the course? : 

This interactive program gives the student multiple skillsets and the confidence to begin applying the tools and techniques immediately within their own Business Unit utilizing the concept of ‘practice practice practice confidence confidence confidence’ the student enjoys a learning experience mixed with practical button pushing exercises to take the theory and apply it to practical outcomes using Microsoft SPC XL while learning a consistent powerful problem solving methodology in DMAIC while learning the soft skills and facilitation techniques to create conversations in a team environment.

Post course 1:1 consulting and mentoring from project mining to project completion is available delivering extra value back to the Business through the removal of waste and non-value-added activities.

Lean Six Sigma Green Belts deliver projects which decrease cycle time, decrease defects and increase first pass yield while improving communication and teamwork through a common set of goals and techniques.

Lean Six Sigma Benefits also include developing leaders in breakthrough technologies to meet stretch goals of producing better products and services delivered faster and at lower cost

At the end of the training course participants will be able to:

  • Understand the concept of Six Sigma and the DMAIC approach to process improvement.
  • Understand the tools involved in the Define, Measure, Analyse, Improve and Control phases.
  • Understand the use of the tools in characterising processes, analysing process data, solving problems and controlling processes.
  • Use the key tools to solve practical business problems.
  • Lead local Six Sigma project teams or assist Black Belts to deliver tangible business results on larger projects
