  • How do White, Yellow and Green Belts differ from one another?

    White Belt (1-day) is an entry-level introduction to Lean to build awareness of Lean concepts, tools and techniques to:

    • enable the improvement of personal and team productivity
    • support Lean process improvement initiatives in the organization
    • facilitate informed decision making about Lean implementation.

    White Belt training is for decision makers, executives, managers and front-line employees (extended team members of a given process area). Successful large-scale Lean improvement project/Lean transformations would likely include department or enterprise-wide White Belt training to build understanding and awareness of Lean and support change management efforts.


    Yellow Belt (3-days) is an introduction to Lean concepts, tools and techniques (DMAIC) to:

    • enable the improvement of a straightforward process
    • support Lean process improvement initiatives in the organization

    Yellow Belt training is for managers and front-line employees who wish to lead a simple improvement project or to be a valuable team member on a more complex project.


    Green Belt (8-days in-class + coaching) applies Lean concepts, tools and techniques (DMAIC) to improve a "live" government process. Participants will be able to:

    • Lead (facilitate) an improvement event of medium complexity
    • Understand and explain Lean principles to others
    • Apply principles of change management
    • Understand, plan for and implement improvement projects to ensure sustainability of results and continuous improvement

    Green Belt training is for managers or employees who wish to lead improvement projects of medium complexity and prospective organizational Lean leaders in the organization
