Organizations (non-profit and for-profit alike) face the ever increasing challenge to be more effective and efficient. This often means doing more with fewer resources, or freeing up resources in order to expand and grow in new ways. This kind of growth and improvement requires individuals who are able to think and operate in terms of both strategy and process. The gold standard for process thinking and operational improvement has become Lean and Six Sigma. These methodologies position individuals to be more efficient and effective by reducing waste, errors, and re-work — as well as freeing up critical resources that can then be leveraged elsewhere. Individuals with Lean and Six Sigma Certifications are highly valued in their organizations for their important contributions to these initiatives.

Weatherhead’s Lean Six Sigma Green Belt Certification training provides participants with enhanced problem-solving skills. We emphasize the DMAIC (Define, Measure, Analyze, Improve and Control) process, along with critical tools such as regression analysis, chi-squared analysis, 5S, value stream mapping and others. Our Six Sigma Green Belt certification helps the employee serve as a trained operational excellence team member within his or her function-specific area of the organization.

Working through a Six Sigma project simulation, participants will fully engage with these tools, learning when and how to apply them for optimal results. During the project they will receive two hours of coaching in support of their project work to ensure they are able to successfully apply the learning. Finally, the Certification itself provides a valuable credential that demonstrates the participant’s new knowledge and ability to apply these tools in practice.

Green Belts can do much of the “on-the-ground” data gathering and analysis for a Lean Six Sigma project. They do not have to be quality practitioners, but are indispensable in support of operational excellence. Whether in healthcare, finance, manufacturing, government, or any other type of service or product based industry Green Belt Training is ideal for anyone looking to contribute to the overall success and growth of their organization.

Learning Outcomes

As a result of attending this programs, participants will:

  • Successfully deploy Lean and Six Sigma techniques to gather and analyze data
  • Support Black Belts and other seasoned continuous improvement experts
  • Lead small-scale improvement projects
  • Green Belt Certification

Green Belt Certification will be granted upon completion and presentation of an approved process improvement project. While attendance in the program will develop you as Green Belt trained, you will not be considered as Green Belt Certified until your project process is complete and certified.

Who Should Attend

Individuals who are looking for an in-depth understanding of the application of Lean Six Sigma concepts, techniques and tools to their organization, as well as individuals interested in developing their skills as continuous improvement and operational excellence leaders.

Individuals do not need to be “quality experts,” or have process improvement and operational excellence as the core of their responsibilities. This program is appropriate for anyone who may be looking to positively impact how their department or functional area operates.

The nature of this program requires a low participant to instructor ratio for maximum effectiveness. As such, seats are limited.

Program Requirements

Participants should come to the program with a process improvement idea/project in mind. Participants should also bring a laptop to this program to complete different program exercises. Individuals without a laptop should contact us by phone (216.368.6413 or 800.736.6403) so arrangements can be made.


Participants will receive their Green Belt Certification upon completion and presentation of an approved process improvement project and a passing grade on their Green Belt certification exam.
