Six Sigma Yellow Belt training provides insight to the techniques of Six Sigma, its metrics, and basic improvement methodologies. A yellow belt certifies knowledge of how to integrate Six Sigma methodologies for the improvement of production and transactional systems to better meet customer expectations and bottom-line objectives of their organisation.
The responsibilities of a Yellow Belt
A Yellow Belt typically has a basic knowledge of Six Sigma, but does not lead projects on their own. They are often responsible for the development of process maps to support Six Sigma implementation. A Yellow Belt participates as a core team member or subject matter expert (SME) on a project or projects. In addition, Yellow Belts may often be responsible for running smaller process improvement projects using the PDCA (Plan, Do, Check, Act) methodology. PDCA, often referred to as the Deming Wheel, enables Yellow Belts to identify processes that could benefit from improvement. These smaller Yellow Belt projects often get escalated to the Green Belt or Black Belt level where a DMAIC methodology is used to maximize cost savings using Statistical Process Control.
What our training provides
Six Sigma Yellow Belt training introduces process management and the basic tools of Six Sigma, giving employees a stronger understanding of processes, enabling everyone to provide meaningful assistance in achieving the organisation’s overall objectives. Our Six Sigma Yellow Belt also improves:
The effectiveness of employees in their support role of Six Sigma
Personnel buy-in of Six Sigma
Day-to-day workplace activities (resulting in a reduction of cycle times, improved quality, and less waste)
Introductory Training in the Fundamentals of Six Sigma.
The Yellow Belt gathers data, participates in problem-solving exercises and adds their personal experiences to the exploration process. Not only do Yellow Belts gain the skills necessary to identify, monitor and control profit-eating practices in their own processes, but they are also prepared to feed that information to Black Belts and Green Belts working on larger system projects.
Why does Continuous Improvement work?
Staff feel they are able to make a change in their own areas
Staff feel they have a say and are supported
The right people make the right decisions around change
Everyone feels engaged and involved.
Continuous Improvement involves utilising the Plan, Do, Check and Act cycle.
This simple technique explains how to plan for and implement change.
Have you asked yourself why change is never sustained?
Do you understand why changes revert to previous states?
Why aren’t your changes impactful and measurably sustained?
