Coaching & Certification

Coaching in Practice

Executing a Lean Agile project, Lean Six Sigma projects, establishing an improvement program, configuring operational management, or effectively guiding project leaders are skills that can be learned. However, applying these skills in practice can be more challenging. Lean Six Sigma Group provides guidance and coaching to help you achieve the maximum results from your improvement initiatives. During a coaching program, we guide, but you are in control. This way, Lean Six Sigma Group contributes to your success.

Guidance in Lean Six Sigma Projects during Training

The Green Belt and Black Belt training programs at Lean Six Sigma Group include coaching sessions. These sessions aim to support participants during their initial projects. After an initial success, participants are more likely to take on new projects with the support of their organization. The coaching starts with an introductory conversation before the training. This conversation focuses on the participant’s learning objectives and the improvement goals for the organization. Throughout and beyond the training, discussions about the project take place at scheduled intervals. Where necessary, we work together to overcome obstacles.

Lean Six Sigma Certification

Mastering Lean Six Sigma requires a combination of understanding the theory and applying it in practice. This combination is reflected in the Lean Six Sigma gradations and their associated certifications. Lean Six Sigma Certification consists of three steps:

  1. Attending a Training: Participating in a training program.
  2. Taking an Exam: Demonstrating theoretical knowledge through an examination.
  3. Executing Improvement Projects: Applying the theory in practice by undertaking improvement projects.

Upon completion of a training, you receive a certificate of participation. After applying the learned theory in practice, you can pursue practical certification as a Belt. Lean Six Sigma Group is accredited by LCS, IASSC, ASQ, CRKBO, NRTO, and CEDEO, ensuring compliance with international standards and the quality of our training.

Our training programs and certificates are LCS accredited. Upon completion of training, examination, and projects, you receive an internationally recognized certificate from LCS and Lean Six Sigma Group. LCS stands for Lean Competency System, a quality mark for continuous improvement training affiliated with the University of Cardiff. The LCS certificate holds international recognition.
