What you will learn
Yellow Belts are people at the grass root level in the organization, i.e. shop-floor employees or supervisory team, that play a vital role in bringing cultural change in an organization and sustaining it on a long-term basis. A Yellow Belt typically has a basic knowledge of Six Sigma, but does not lead projects on their own. The Lean Six Sigma Yellow Belt course is for people who are going to be involved in a Six Sigma project as a team member, assisting Black Belts and Green Belts executing sponsored projects. The Yellow Belt collects data, participates in problem-solving exercises and adds their personal experiences in resolving the complex problems in organizations.
