Yellow Belt Training.

Problem-solving is one of the key factors addressed in our Yellow Belt training.

What is Yellow Belt Training?

Sustaining a Lean transformation requires continuous problem-solving by everyone in the organisation. In the context of Continuous Improvement, it is a never-ending process. Yellow Belt Training includes a suite of problem-solving tools which can be employed to increase profitability, lower costs, and improve customer satisfaction. The Yellow Belt is normally followed by completion of the Green Belt. Our approach is ”Learn As You Do”, and the completion of a Yellow Belt project by each participant who is mentored by an experienced practitioner supports the effective transfer of knowledge from trainer to the student.

Who should attend?

Yellow Belt Training is essential for your front-line support team including supervisors, team leaders and support personnel; to ensure that problems are resolved at the appropriate level in the organisation. The long-term goal is to train all tiers of the organisation to this level, to allow the organisation to make Lean Transformations a reality.
