The Power of Lean Six Sigma
What To Expect From A Lean Six Sigma Professional Certification
The Six Sigma methodology dates back to as early as 19th century and is basically a disciplined, customer-focused problem solving procedure which aims at delivering and developing near-perfect services and products.
Majority of the preliminary work related to Six Sigma was performed at AT&T’s manufacturing arm and the most sizable contributions were made by Dr. W. Edwards Deming, Dr. Joseph Juran and Walter Shewhart between 1918 and 1950s. In 1980s, one of the Motorola’s manufacturing facilities that was failing at that time, was bought by Japanese Matsushita company. The operations and management were changed dramatically and the end result was fewer defects in comparison to the older Motorola television sets. Bob Galvin, Motorola’s then CEO, threw a challenge to his company to achieve 10-fold performance improvement in 5-year time span. The quality improvement was achieved through Statistical Process Control and Motorola successfully used Six Sigma to achieve 3.4 defects per million opportunities or DPMO with 99.9997% dependability. Since then the Six Sigma methodology has been incorporated by several Fortune 500 companies to improve their performance levels and demonstrate consistent results over several quarters

Significance of DMAIC
The process of DMAIC is the core of the Six Sigma process and is a rational approach at decision-making for improvement in processes. DMAIC can be defined as Define, which is followed closely by Measure, then Analyze to Improve as well as Control.
Structure Of Six Sigma Lean Professional Certification Course
Here are the different foundation programs in Six Sigma, starting with Green Belt:
The Green Belt Training/Certification
In this, the participants who are involved in Six Sigma projects are made to understand the basics of problem solving, collection of data and data interpretation, process capability, variation as well as cost analysis. In many cases, the Green Belts offer assistance to the Black Belts when it comes to larger initiatives and/or leading small scale projects in their functional areas such as Purchasing, Customer support etc
The Black Belt Training/Certification
These Black Belts receive thorough individual Six Sigma training to gain expertise in use of statistical tools as well as interpretation of analytical results. Black Belts have to identify various opportunities, take leadership of initiatives and also provide coaching to Green Belts. Typically Balck Belts have KPIs that are measured by how much they have saved the company in dollars. Most Black Belts have goals to save anywhere between 250k to 1 Mn dollars
The Master Black Belt Training/Certification
They are considered to be quality experts who are responsible for strategic implementation of six sigma projects on a large scale inside any organization. A Master Black Belt is responsible for mentoring and training both Black Belts along with Green Belts, and they help prioritize various initiatives, as well as select or charter projects with high impacts.
The Champion Certification
A Six Sigma Champion is expected to offer support and resources, as well as get rid of all the road-blocks during any project. These Champions develop an understanding of the different Six Sigma measurements, methods along with processes.
The above-mentioned are the various levels of certification you can apply for in a lean Six Sigma Professional Certification Course.
