Learn how to drive quality and productivity projects by mastering the methods, tools and principles of Lean Six Sigma.
Lean Six Sigma enable organizations to identify weaknesses of their business processes, to measure, analyze and improve their performance, and thus to sustainably increase customer satisfaction and decrease costs.
In this program, you will first earn the TUM Lean Six Sigma Yellow Belt Certification by mastering the fundamentals of the Lean Six Sigma methodology, plus the Green Belt Certification by applying your knowledge in practice with a predefined project.
The Body of Knowledge of the first three courses in the series (QPLS1-3x) reflects the standard of the American Society for Quality for their Certified Six Sigma Green Belt. In these courses, you will learn the DMAIC (Define, Measure, Analyze, Improve, Control) process improvement cycle and examine how the principles of Lean Production improve quality and productivity and enable organizational transformation. Both descriptive and inferential statistics will be applied, and all concepts are exercised using online problems and interactive exercises and case studies.
After receiving our Yellow Belt Certification, learners apply their knowledge in practice to earn the TUM Lean Six Sigma Green Belt Certification (QPLS4x), according the recommendation of the International Society of Six Sigma Professionals, by implementing our predefined project on environmental littering: Improve the cleanliness of areas around selected places in your hometown and control the sustainability of your measures.
We will guide you using software with all relevant tools, specific tasks, a project storybook template to document your results, graded reviews of your documentation after each DMAIC phase, and weekly live online sessions for your questions. The Green Belt Certification will be awarded after completion of the course and final review of your completed project storybook and your collected data.
This TUM Lean Six Sigma Yellow and Green Belt certifications allow you to demonstrate your personal operational excellence with your project story book to actively reduce costs and increase customer satisfaction in any organizational environment. Your new skills can facilitate your career entry or advance your career.

Only then you may start your Green Belt Certification project with QPLS4x. There is no deadline for completing the courses and project.
