Dr. W. Edwards Deming famously said that “Every [process] is perfectly designed to get the results it gets.” And “If you can’t describe what you are doing as a process, you don’t know what you’re doing.”
Across these two quotes it is pretty clear to see that processes are important. Whether you work in an industry such as healthcare, warehousing and distribution, manufacturing, or really anywhere for that matter, processes define your work and determine your outcomes. A Lean Six Sigma Green Belt certification equips learners with a proven methodology for identifying and eliminating the process bottlenecks, barriers, and problems that prevent individuals and organizations from achieving breakthrough results.
To become certified, the learner is required to demonstrate knowledge and execution of the various improvement tools and principles applicable to helping a team navigate the DMAIC process. DMAIC stands for Define, Measure, Analyze, Improve, and Control – it is the framework that improvement professionals follow to solve complex business problems. Within this training, the learner is provided an introduction to the DMAIC process as well as the tools and concepts to successfully implement the framework wherever they go.
To assist with retention of the learning materials and demonstrate a high-level of competency, the learner must pass Green Dot’s Green Belt certification exam. This exam is designed by the experienced professionals at the Green Dot Group and is benchmarked against the American Society of Quality’s (ASQ) certification exam. Upon passing the exam, the learner will be certified by the Green Dot Group.
If the learner wishes to certify through ASQ, they will need to satisfy ASQ’s examination requirements detailed on ASQ’s website.
After certifying their knowledge, a Green Belt can begin applying their new knowledge to affect real world change. Although Green Belts are not traditionally employed as full-time improvement professionals, they can nonetheless make an impact on how their organization operates and serves its customers. Green Belts can lead their own teams with appropriate coaching, mentorship, and oversight from an experienced improvement professional. The Green Belt plays a critical role within the Lean organization because they add capacity to the organization’s ability to improve while allowing the organization’s Black Belts (if any exist) to operate at a higher level.
The Lean Six Sigma Green Belt certification course teaches a standardized problem-solving methodology that can provide the learner with a competitive advantage in their industry or career. This course is designed for:

The individual enrollment training option is for self-guided learning. After enrolling in the course, the learner will gain access to all learning modules and downloadable content, but will have to navigate the curriculum independently.
Looking for a more customized and hands-on learning experience? The Green Dot Group can train your employees on your schedule, in-person or online. We can also support your new learners through their first projects.
Key benefits of training with Green Dot includes:
The primary objective of the define phase is to establish the purpose of the project and why it is important to the organization and its customers.
During the measure phase, the team conducts a baseline assessment of the organization’s current performance and sets clear goals.
To ensure the solutions make an impact, the analyze phase is critical in helping the team understand the root cause issue or issues of the problem.
During the improve phase, the team conducts a small series of controlled experiments to test their ideas and solutions.
After the team has implemented the solutions, they will measure the impact and determine the effectiveness of the solution during the control phase. Additionally, the team will need to monitor the results and plan for continuous improvement.
