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.

Employees at All Levels:

Yellow Belt training is ideal for anyone regardless of position who has a basic working knowledge of Lean Six Sigma and wants to build on this and develop further.

Cross-Functional Teams:

Individuals who work across different functions or departments can benefit from Yellow Belt training to understand how Lean Six Sigma can be applied to improve processes within their areas of responsibility.

Project Team Members:

Those who are part of larger Lean Six Sigma projects but don’t have a leading role can benefit from Yellow Belt training to contribute effectively to the project and understand the methodologies being applied.

Managers and Supervisors:

Managers and supervisors who want to understand the basic concepts of Lean Six Sigma and how it can benefit their teams and wider organisation can also find significant value in Yellow Belt training.

Lean Six Sigma offers a really good structure to use when approaching a project or problem. Working for one company for a long time like I have, naturally you would think you would know the best approach, but this makes you really think and assess all the information before you jump to a conclusion. This training really helps you to identify improvements, better control processes, and the toolbox needed for me to take the next step in my career within project management.
