Set Yourself Apart From Your Colleagues

A Green Belt certification will set you apart from your colleagues as being uniquely equipped with the right combination of analytical problem solving, critical thinking, and process-improvement skills.

Regardless of your area of focus, you can benefit from the Terry College of Business’s Lean Six Sigma program. Six Sigma is an enterprise-wide, data-driven methodology used to improve products and processes by increasing operational efficiencies, and improving the value delivered to your customers. This four-day engagement brings together supervisors and mid-level managers across service and manufacturing industries who strive for flawless execution, seek continuous process improvement, and drive nonstop toward peak operational efficiency within their companies.
