What is a Lean Six Sigma Yellow Belt?
Essentially, a Yellow Belt is versed in the basics of Lean Six Sigma Methodology and is primarily a support for operational excellence or improvement projects or someone who handles smaller teams and processes.
A training like this can help the executives use appropriate problem-solving tools to define exceptional opportunities in their daily operations.
A Yellow Belt should also be able to come up with a set of metrics that the executives and the whole company can use to measure success and improvement. The Six Sigma part is all about numbers and hard data—so it’s your job to determine how to effectively tell if your changes are working.
The controlling aspect of a Yellow Belt’s expertise involves overcoming hurdles and difficulties when the Black Belts have moved on to another project in need. This means that you will continue to focus on the problems and the processes that will improve customer satisfaction by delivering cost effective products and services on a consistent basis.
As yellow belt, and in close collaboration with the Black Belt you also have to eliminate resistance, facilitate cooperation and determine which products, services or processes to target in order to start your company’s transformative change.
