The Lean Green Belt Certificate workshop is a deep dive into the Lean structured problem solving method known as DMAIC (define, measure, analyze, improve) for government and knowledge workers. Participants learn how to facilitate improvement projects and get results by applying the concepts to two "live" processes: one from a Green Belt sponsor organization (8 days, in-class group project) and one from their own organization (8 days, individual project). In total, achieving a Lean Green Belt certificate requires approximately 16 days of hands-on effort spread over a 3 - 5 month period.
Typically, the individual project (after implementation) will create annual time savings to more than offset the time you invest in the program. For example, if the program and assignment require 16 days of the participant's time, then improvement solutions should save 32 days per year on an ongoing basis.
