Green Belt Process Improvement Methodologies - 2019

DMAIC Projectleader

This "Process Improvement Methodologies” Green Belt combines the rigorous, statistical approach of Six Sigma with the simplicity and speed of the Lean philosophy. This allows participants to achieve the challenging financial goals of their company faster and in a more efficient way. The continuous success of companies is more and more depending on the presence of specialized collaborators who can optimize processes in team as well as production, service and administrative processes.


The Green Belt course consists of 3 work sessions each of 3 consecutive days. Each work session offers a mix of theoretical foundation and practical exercises.

  • Each participant should preferably have a project regarding process improvement.
  • During the training, there are feedback moments about the progress and possible problems in these projects.
  • Each session provides the opportunity for exchanging experiences with other participants.
  • At the end of the training an exam is administered and participants who get a score of 70% or higher will receive a Green Belt certification.

Course language is Dutch, course material is English.
