Event Details

Yellow Belt is an approach to process improvement that merges the complementary concepts and tools from both Six Sigma and Lean approaches. The resulting approach will have greater impact than one that centers on only Six Sigma or Lean. Participants will learn a short history of each approach and how they can complement each other.

They will be introduced to the Define, Measure, Analyze, Improve, Control

improvement process and some of the tools associated with each stage.


The following topics will be focused during the training:

Resistance to Change

5-S and Visual Controls

Team Building

Problem Solving Process

Statistical Thinking

During this interactive Yellow Belt training, each group of participants will identify opportunities within their respective work areas and ways to improve those areas utilizing taught problem solving tools. The teams will present their identified work area opportunity and suggested solutions.
