Green Belt FAQs

Here are the answers to some of the most frequently asked questions about our Lean Six Sigma Green Belt training course.

Why do I need a Lean Six Sigma Green Belt?

As an LSS Green Belt, you will have the opportunity to deliver small-scale improvement projects which, if successful, can bring a genuine sense of fulfillment. Indeed, there aren’t many things as empowering as knowing that you’ve had a genuine impact on the productivity and financial performance of your company.

Professionals with LSS Green Belt certification will usually spend between 25% and 50% of their working hours on Lean Six Sigma projects. They are generally considered to be experts in Lean Six Sigma methodology and a driving force for quality in their organization.

Does a candidate need to complete all of the belt levels in sequence?

No they do not. However, a candidate should fit a belt-specific profile and meet the explicit nomination criteria for that belt. They should also possess the knowledge, skills and experience that are required to be successful at the specific belt. Generally, candidates can start with Yellow, Green or Black Belt training, and can discontinue training at any belt level.

What is Lean Six Sigma?

Lean is the process of optimizing organizational systems by eliminating or at least reducing, the “waste” within them. Six Sigma is a quality improvement method that seeks to improve process effectiveness. The integration of Lean and Six Sigma has become known as Lean Six Sigma, delivering both improved efficiency and effectiveness.

Do I need Minitab? Can I use Excel instead?

Minitab is not a hard requirement for our programs. However, for Green Belt with Stats, Black Belt, and Upgrade to Black Belt, it is highly recommended. The instructor will reference and showcase many statistical tools and concepts using Minitab and therefore it will make your certification journey much easier in comparison to using Microsoft Excel.

What salary can you earn as an LSS Green Belt?

According to Salary.com, the average salary in the United States for somebody with Lean Six Sigma Green Belt certification is $104,300 (as of March 26, 2020). The range typically falls between $84,700 and $110,200, and can be affected by a number of factors including additional skills and certifications, education, the number of years somebody has worked in their chosen profession, and the industry in which they operate.

How can I pay for Green Belt training?

We usually prefer that you pay for Green Belt training with a credit card. However, if you would like to be invoiced, please reach out to <a href=”mailto:[email protected]”>[email protected]</a>. We also allow for flexible payment schedules, where required.

What is the difference between LSS Green Belt and Black Belt?

Green Belts typically have less of a leadership role than Black Belts, hence why the latter tend to demand a higher salary than the former. In general, project teams will comprise a number of Green and Yellow Belt professionals who will be responsible for actioning improvements under the guidance of a certified Black Belt.

A Green Belt’s understanding of Lean Six Sigma methodologies won’t be as advanced, but they will still possess the necessary knowledge to solve quality problems and perform analysis using the relevant tools. Black Belts, on the other hand, will have a thorough understanding of Lean Six Sigma and an ability to lead successful improvement projects.
