Lean Six Sigma

Lean Six Sigma (Green Belt) Certificate

Lean Six Sigma is a step-by-step process of interventions and statistical tools that allow companies to understand which business processes are not performing as needed; identify root causes of problems; and sustain gains in improvements.

Whether your organization is large or small, whether it manufactures a product, produces a service to customers, or a little of both, your processes can be improved through Lean Six Sigma tools and techniques.

Graduates receive a certificate designation from the University of Wisconsin-Madison that demonstrates command of this topic area, and peer networking connections to last a lifetime.
