Lean Yellow Belts work to achieve improvements in their own work environment

The Lean Yellow Belt is familiar with Lean principles, Lean techniques such as 5S and continuous improvement using the Kaizen approach (PDCA). As a Lean Yellow Belt, you work independently to solve problems in your own work environment. The Lean Yellow Belt also participates as a team member in larger Lean or Six Sigma projects.

If an organization decides to implement Lean Six Sigma company-wide, large groups of employees will often be trained at the Yellow Belt level to create a strong foundation. Yellow Belts have extensive experience with day-to-day processes and for that reason are well able to carry out Kaizen projects independently. The Yellow Belt is also a valuable team member within Green or Black Belt projects.

Yellow Belts are often responsible for improving operational performance within a particular department or line. This could include reducing lead times, solving problems or improving quality. Activities may be related to 5S, implement visual management techniques, contribute to the development of work processes and standards or they participate in brainstorming sessions.
