Green Belts on the Job

What type of project work is expected from a Green Belt?

A Six Sigma Green Belt is expected to lead improvement projects and support Black Belts and Master Black Belts as part of a team on more complex projects. Typical project work revolves around solving problems that the customer and the organization care about. Improvements in safety, quality, lead time, and cost are all examples of metrics Green Belt projects may target.

Improvements in products, services, experiences, and environments can all be measured with a combination of quantitative data and qualitative customer feedback. For example, an electronics company might use product sales to test the appeal of its newest accessories, or a restaurant chain might gather input from its wait staff and customers to determine the best parts of its latest menu. Regardless of industry, a Lean Six Sigma Green Belt can make a substantial impact by applying the DMAIC roadmap and critical thinking skills to tackle a problem set before them.
