The Green Belt programme introduces the principles and basic tools of Change Management because Lean Six Sigma projects are Change projects – they change the way the process is currently performed and therefore change what the people working in and supporting the process do. The power of the DMAIC approach will overcome even problems which were previously thought to be beyond resolution but in many environments getting people to buy-in to the new way can be a considerable challenge. That slows down the delivery of the improvement and results in it not achieving its maximum potential. Sometimes it even fails.

The course will help enable you to be an effective manager of change and achieve the full potential of your project. When change management is done well, people feel engaged in the change process and work collectively towards a common objective, realising benefits and delivering results.

Who is this programme for?
