Course description

This is a 2-day course endorsed with the Institute of Leadership and Management, designed to give individuals an insight into lean six sigma and an understanding of their role as a "yellow belt" in a team supporting a "Green Belt" project lead.

At the end of the training individuals will understand how they can support improvement projects and will have a choice to use a "different thinking way".

Your company would see a return from the training via improved team working towards successful project delivery. The course has exposed "hidden" leaders that have gone on to become strategic change agents within the business that invested in them.
