    Yellow Belt Delivery

    There are two types of training delivery method we provide for our Lean Six Sigma Yellow Belt Course; Live Online (Instructor Led) & Tailored Training.

    Live Online Lean Awareness

    Our Four Day Live Online Instructor Led training allows learners to access training wherever they are in the world. The training is conducted virtually, with an expert delivery coach who brings the training to life. Being virtual can be less intrusive and more flexible for learners, but still with the same benefits of interactivity, peer learning and insights and networking opportunities.

    This is most suitable for individuals or small groups of learners from a particular organisation.

    Tailored Lean Awareness

    Our tailored training can adopt on-site or virtual training allowing it to remain flexible, however it benefits most by being able to be tailored and relevant to a particular organisation and its needs. It is typically delivered over two days, to allow for this but also incorporate a more in depth exploration of concepts including value streams and managing change.

    Whether on-site, virtual or a blend of the two, our training programme will speak to the requirements of both the organisation and the specific group of learners. Training Programmes can be combined too, creating a truly adaptable and bespoke business solution.

    Ideal for larger groups (usually six or more) of learners from a particular organisation, whether on the same site or across multiple different sites.

    “At CMA CGM, we are committed to finding ‘Better Ways’ of doing things. Our latest initiative involves introducing Lean and Six Sigma methodology into our ways of working in the UK&I. I had the opportunity to participate in the first white belt workshop, and I’m already understanding how I can apply this easily and effectively to my own role. I’m excited to hear how my colleagues will apply these new methodologies too.”
