Certified Green Belt What Does That Mean?
So I got my certification as a Six Sigma Green Belt a few years ago and you ask, "what does that mean"?
Overview of Green Belt
Six Sigma Green Belts are the project leaders.
A Green Belt is a primary driver of Six Sigma methodology. He is a person who is trained in Six Sigma skills to the same level as the Black Belt (black belt training is a ton more of math). Green Belts work part-time on the chosen projects and undergo lesser intensive (more math)training than Black Belts. They lead a project under a Black Belt (BB). A Green Belt will apply project specific DMAIC skills. Green Belt projects are locally focused i.e. they work on smaller projects which are limited to a single department.
The methodology used by Greenbelts is known as DMAIC. DMAIC has five interconnected phases- Define, Measure, Analyze, Improve and Control. I went through this discussion in earlier postings on the DMAIC subject.
