Yellow Belt

Six Sigma Online’s Yellow Belt certification provides an overall insight to the techniques of Six Sigma, its metrics, and basic improvement methodologies. Students will learn 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 organization. It provides an introduction to process management and the basic tools of Six Sigma, giving employees a stronger understanding of processes, enabling each individual to provide meaningful assistance in achieving the organization’s overall objectives. They also: – Improve effectiveness of employees in their support role of Six Sigma – Improve personnel buy-in of Six Sigma – Improve day-to-day workplace activities (resulting in a reduction of cycle times, improved quality, and less waste) A Yellow Belt is an individual who has received 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.

The Yellow Belt course provides a basic understanding of the necessary strategies, methods, techniques and tools for enacting the improvement process. Specifically, the Yellow Belt course teaches the fundamentals of improvement and process management by preparing people to identify measurement scales, define critical process factors, collect data, characterize processes, make easy improvements and cultivate project opportunities.
