The Online Lean Six Sigma Green Belt (LSSGB) Certification program accredited by the Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering at Arizona State University (ASU) has been designed to cater to learners across three industry areas: Manufacturing, Healthcare and Service / Transactional. Participants enrolling in the program will select an industry focus to learn about sector-specific tools, case studies and applications of lean and six sigma.
Regardless of the industry focus area chosen, the LSSGB at ASU examines how Lean and Six Sigma are used together to provide breakthrough improvements for organizations. The program follows the Define, Measure, Analyze, Improve and Control (DMAIC) methodology; a customer-focused, fact and data-driven approach that guides continuous improvement and operational excellence.
The LSSGB-Manufacturing program explores tools to form a disciplined roadmap for developing solutions to existing problems, processes and products in the manufacturing sector.
The LSSGB-Health Care program explores aspects of managing health care organizations to eliminate life-threatening errors, reduce wait-times, increase safety, and reduce expenses.
The LSSGB-Service / Transactional program focuses on tools for service organizations to increase profitability, improve customer satisfaction, and reduce process cycle times.
Becoming a Lean Six Sigma Green Belt will equip you with the ability to evaluate and improve current processes, and establish optimized future state processes within your organizations. It also serves as a basis for the Six Sigma Black Belt program. Organizations are always looking for innovative ways to do things better, faster and cheaper. The Lean Six Sigma tool set will help you achieve those goals. This program is applicable in various industries; professionals, faculty, and students are encouraged to become certified.
