Lean Six Sigma Green Belt course (English)
For organisations to succeed in our rapidly changing world, continuous adaptation and improvement of work processes is very important. For decades, Lean Six Sigma has been the most successful improvement methodology. It solves deeply rooted causes of problems, makes work processes more efficient and involves employees towards a culture of continuous improvement.
During this 6-day training you learn all about Lean management and Six Sigma. We teach you how to apply the practical tools and what you can do to realise a culture of ‘continuous improvement’. After the training you will be able to manage a Lean Six Sigma improvement project from start to finish.
We train in groups up to 12 participants. They come from all regions and branches. This often leads to valuable discussions and knowledge sharing. It is nice to see that participants are often still in contact with each other after the training. We also support this by organising inspiring events, masterclasses and a half-yearly Lean reunion.
Online learning environment ‘My Bureau Tromp’
After registration you will get access to your personal ‘My Bureau Tromp’ online learning environment. Here you will find an overview of your courses and certificates obtained. You will also find the training material, e-learnings, exercises and templates here.

Content of the training
First you will get to know the backgrounds of Lean Management and Six Sigma and learn how these two methodologies reinforce each other. From here we will teach you all the important instruments from the Lean Six Sigma toolbox, the interrelationships between them and the DMAIC project structure. You can expect a lively training in which we practice with the tools. Learning by doing is the best way.
In this training we use a diversity of Lean games, videos, discussions and practical simulations. This way we bring theory into practice so you can apply what you’ve learnt in your own work environment.
As it is very important that improvements are accepted by management and employees, we devote considerable attention to change management. Think about topics such as project selection, stakeholder management and how to deal with resistance. We teach you some soft skills that will help you to get your projects on a good start.
Finally, we’ll consider the future of work processes. Lean Six Sigma plays an important role in the current digitization / robotization trend. Therefore, let’s discuss how this impacts the way we do our work.
The training is practical and interactive. Our consultant/trainer tells from his or her own experience. Moreover, we regularly ask participants about their practical examples and provoke discussions. This makes the theory a “real” story.
