  • In this Lean Green Belt training you will learn the theory behind Lean and Six Sigma, but thanks to cases and simulation games you will also learn how to apply the techniques in practice.
  • You will learn how to independently start, manage and complete Lean initiatives and Kaizen improvement projects in your own department.
  • After the training – with your certificate of participation or internationally recognized LSSA certificate in your pocket – you will realize significant improvements in your organization’s operational processes as a professional Lean Green Belt.


Lean Green Belts contribute to more efficient processes through the application of Lean techniques. The goal of Lean is to make processes more stable and efficient. With the right combination of specialized knowledge of the process and application of Lean techniques, the Lean Green Belt is able to realize significant improvements in reducing lead time and work in progress.

After completing Lean Green Belt training, you will be able to work in your own department as a project manager with Lean initiatives and Kaizen improvement projects. The Lean way of working aims to achieve maximum value for the customer with as little waste as possible (Muda). The Lean Green Belt designs the operational process smarter and more efficiently. The application of Lean drives lead time down and reduces costs.

The organizational impact and savings can be as great as that of a Black Belt project, but in general, Green Belt projects tend to be smaller in size and are less complex than Black Belt projects. The scope of a Green Belt project often covers one particular department or process. Lean Green Belts can work independently or within a team as a project manager. Team members of Green Belt projects can be Belt themselves, but they can also be employees without specific Lean knowledge.


For whom.

Lean Green Belt training is widely taken by those involved in improving operational and support processes in both industry and the public sector. The education level for this course is HBO/HBO+.

Study load Lean Green Belt training

This Green Belt training course lasts for 5 days. You take the training either in class or virtually. You get the most out of Green Belt training if you study the material after each block and preview the next training block. Our rule of thumb is 8 hours of class is 8 hours of preparation and study. Thus, the study load is approximately 40 hours.
