How do I become a Lean Six Sigma expert?

With our trainings!

Lean Six Sigma continues to be applied across all industries. It is always a transformation on both a large and small scale. Combined with agile methods, it can be applied at any time to become more efficient in a structured way. This is a philosophy that companies are committed to.

Lean Six Sigma is a management approach for restructuring a company with regard to sustainable changes. The objective is a transparent, customer-oriented and cross-divisional organization.

Lean Six Sigma is a comprehensive set of methods with proven tools based on Six Sigma and Lean Management. An organization is trained and supported in these methods.

Sigma as a measured value indicating the number of defects in a process or product. Sigma is the Greek letter for dispersion - Six Sigma means: 99.99966% of the result is error-free (3.4 errors out of 1 million possibilities).

All Six Sigma projects run through a structured project cycle:

DMAIC (Define, Measure, Analyze, Improve, Control)

Extremely important here is the collection of data, which is the basis for any decision making in the course of the project.

The data is used to

  • confirm the nature and extent of the problem;
  • find out the real causes of problems;
  • create innovative solutions,
  • which have been proven to eliminate the causes;
  • establish procedures that will maintain the implemented solutions after the end of the project.

DMAIC project structure

  • Define: What is important?
  • Measure: How good are we at the moment?
  • Analyse: Why do we not meet the requirements?
  • Improve: What needs to be done?
  • Control: How do we guarantee sustainable improvements?

    You are a trained Green Belt (training and exams successfully completed) and would like to complete your training with certification.

    The certification should also be possible if no DMAIC project is feasible at the current employer.

    We offer two options for your Green Belt certification:

    a) Submission of your own DMAIC project based on our PROCISE Workbook (Powerpoint template).

    b) Processing our PROCISE Green Belt case study with documentation in our PROCISE Workbook.

    • Our certifications are performed by Master Black Belts with over 20 years of experience.
    • We also certify Green Belts who have completed their training at other training institutes.
    • In addition to the certification, we provide you with a package of useful project templates and checklists.
    • Should your project not be certifiable after an initial check, you will not be charged any costs!

    Additional information:

    Price for the certification: 1.650 € (plus VAT)
    Optional PROCISE Green Belt case study: 350 € (plus VAT)

    We also offer Black Belt certifications on request. You can have your Green Belt project taken into account for a later Black Belt certification.

    Customer statement:

    "After completing the Six Sigma Black seminar, I took the opportunity to implement a case study at PROCISE. The case study described a current situation from "life". The case study is not easy. It is time-consuming and complex, but you learn to work towards the solution step by step.

    I found the milestone-oriented execution of the DMAIC process advantageous. This means that only after you have successfully completed the milestone, you have received further information about the next step. One had to concentrate on the "NECESSARY". Especially in the acceptance and milestone discussions, the potential and advantages of the Six Sigma process were made clear through the real reference.

    I can only recommend PROCISE as a partner for the training of Six Sigma Black Belt. The theoretical training is well coordinated and I can also use the documents for my further work in the company. I have never seen a better combination of theory and practice in any other training institute".
