Lean Six Sigma Yellow Belt Training 
February 22 Virtual Session

The Wisconsin Center for Performance Excellence and Rocky Mountain Performance Excellence invite you to join us for an interactive introduction to Lean SIx Sigma basics with our partner, The Lean Six Sigma Company!


The Lean Six Sigma methodology has been used to streamline processes to provide services or products to customers, patients, citizens, or stakeholders faster and with fewer errors. Often, the projects take place within the organization, where several people work together (for example, a billing process, licensing process, logistics-, or production processes). The people who run the projects are called Green Belts and Black Belts, but they are dependent on the input and cooperation of their team members to succeed. This workshop explores the process and tools needed to improve process performance and results.
