Fabulous Green Belt course, loved that you could work on it as and when you wanted. I had already gained my Green Belt back in 2010 but needed to refresh myself as work colleague where working through the modules and I was point of contact for any queries within the company, so decided to participate in the online version. Can't fault any of the learning, very informative, covered all modules fully and would definitely recommend to anyone if they wanted to go down this road for their business improvements. Great value for money, my original course cost over £1,600.

Best online course I have taken so far!

Excellent program. It was straightforward, comprehensive, and extremely convenient. The courses were use friendly. Some of the tools were somewhat cumbersome for me and I found it easier to create my own based on the examples. No big deal. I am already using many of the skills I learned and practiced. The course has made me an improved lean-innovator!

This training will be a powerful companion to my audit skills.

The green belt training course was a great investment. Good value, comprehensive, covered all the bases, and the examples provided really highlight our lean six sigma can benefit an organization. The team at goleansixsigma is always very helpful and supportive when contacted. I highly recommend the program to anyone interested in continuous improvement.

Our Learners Love Us

GoLeanSixSigma.com provides a wonderful combination of online and onsite training for my staff here at Cape Cod Child Development. They took our group through a proof-of-concept simulation and then guided them to select realistic and measurable projects that connect directly to our organization’s mission.

The once-a-month onsite Green Belt Workshop provided a framework and time for them to work on their individual projects while the entire group stayed engaged. With some one-on-one coaching, I am confident this group is going to bring their projects to complete success, while learning so many invaluable skills along the way.

I’m looking forward to us being a first-rate example of how Lean Six Sigma can make a huge difference in the non-profit world.

The web-based training from GoLeanSixSigma.com gives a lot of flexibility in terms of when you can take the courses and exams.

The previous training we went through was a week-long boot camp and there was no commitment to do any project afterwards. A week-long spent in class was too much class time and exhausting. Hence, we walked away with some knowledge but that knowledge didn’t quite stick since we didn’t apply the learning anywhere.

The second approach (with GoLeanSixSigma.com) was a training where we were applying the tools to a real project which solidified learning much better. Plus, I really enjoyed our classroom training since we had an awesome instructor. I think it was super helpful to have a coach who helped through the project work.

I thoroughly enjoyed your Green Belt course and believe it to be comprehensive and very easy to use. We have found the resources and templates particularly valuable as we build our team and establish standard work for our projects.

Jonathan Dubose

This Green Belt course is fantastic. I tried another Lean Six Sigma training program online, and it was bogged down with too much statistical information for me to get into while keeping up with my workload. This program on the other hand was easy to understand and apply. I am using it with my department right now.

I started a Lean Six Sigma project after taking the Yellow Belt course. It was possible to do up until the improve phase, when I decided to jump into the Green Belt course. It is rich with information and additional tools.

It is increasing the productivity of my department by 30% in about 4 months.

I love the consistent use of Bahama Bistro to illustrate the points of the training. It makes the concepts easier to grasp when there are “real” examples.

I completed the Green Belt course shortly after transitioning out of the Military. It helped me quickly integrate into my organization and serve as an asset in our pursuit of providing the best service possible for our customers and citizens.

The Green Belt course was a great way to learn the tools and techniques that are being applied in the most competitive industries around the globe. It helped me to rapidly serve as an asset to my organization and quickly identify opportunities for improvement, then get to work.

Chris Franco

My staff and I are very happy with the Green and Black Belt programs with GoLeanSixSigma.com. The material is easy to follow and we appreciate the examples around the Bahama Bistro are very helpful.

In 2016, a Lean Six Sigma (LSS) initiative was launched in Pitney Bowes Presort Services in support of our strategic goals of improving operational excellence and fostering the professional development of our employees.  Recently, nine individuals presented results from their projects to our Executive Staff. They highlighted how improvement opportunities were qualified, how root causes were unearthed and pulled into the light, how innovative improvements were identified, implemented, and verified. Most importantly, they were able to quantify the impact those improvements have had on our organization and our Clients.
