Upon acceptance into the program, you will receive detailed information about assessment criteria and the certification process. The improvement plan must be conducted with approval from a sponsor within your workplace.
From here, you will work through each stage of your improvement project in real time, producing the relevant documentation and evidence of progress at each stage of the project. You will need to share this with your Master Black Belt coach throughout, in order to receive feedback on your work.
At the end of the project, you are to submit a completed report with your project portfolio, which will be used for certification assessment. Satisfactory completion of all requirements will reward you with the Green Belt Certification.
The Lean Six Sigma Green Belt Certification program fee includes:
- Written feedback on the sponsor-approved and sponsor-signed improvement plan proposal
- Four, one-hour coaching sessions conducted by telephone, web-chat or face-to-face, with the timing and method dependent on mutual availability, and
- Assessment of one completed improvement project portfolio, complying with certification guidelines.
It is possible to complete the certification process within two to three months and it must be completed within a maximum timeframe of 12 months.
