Other Training Programs
To build a Business Excellence culture you need to have people who understand what it is and how to execute to achieve it. This involves investing in training your best talent to lead the business through the improvement actions/projects they undertake. Also the ROI is that the Belts get an certification award which recognises their skills and the business benefit, which are recognised by other organisations.
Training depth (or level) required depends on the role of the trainee and the scope of actions within the organisation. We have found that our linked program allows the Belts to develop through the levels as the business requires and as their ambition grows.
These levels are often linked to the martial arts levels as a reference point:
Yellow Belt - Awareness training - Introduction of what is Business Excellence and the key terms & tools like Lean, Six Sigma, DMAIC, Measurement, Performance, Understanding Quality and the Customer requirements, Waste. Course length from 2 to 8 Hours
Brown Belt - Senior Management Sponsor - Awareness Training with focus on Project sponsorship and project identification to achieve Business Excellence. Course Length from 1 to 2 days
Green Belt - Practitioner Level - In-depth coverage of Lean & Six Sigma methodologies with the staged execution of DMAIC. Focus on use of improvement toolsets, like process mapping and basic data analysis to solve key business issues and the elimination of waste. Course length 5 days
Black Belt - Advanced Practitioner Level - Building on the Green Belt knowledge with more in-depth data analysis skills using statistical software to find the "statistically significant differences" to drive identification and elimination of variance in the business along with use of lean techniques to ensure process flow. Course length 5 to 10 days depending on experience.
Master Black Belt - Master Practitioner level - Additional skills to teach other Belts and coach projects to success. Methods of working with the senior management team to identify and prioritise business projects to match the overall business strategy to achieve Business Excellence. Course length 5 days plus developed plan
Kaizen Leaders - Workshop Leaders - Focus on the skills to lead a small team to identify and fix inter-department or cross business issues using a standard set of Lean tools. Course Length 3 days

It is important that the process is clear to all and the responsibility of each person in the process is outlined.
With our many years of training, developing and supporting all the various Belts we have trained in many many organisations and also being instrumental in the creation of the standards that Belts are judged by (lead Motorola's program in the 1990s), we are able to offer Certification with a signature that gives credibility to the certificate award.
