In our continuously evolving environment, the ability to shift time and energy from low-value to high-value work is more critical than ever for individual and organizational improvement. To support reskilling in this area, OPM’s Process & Performance Improvement Program (PPIP) is conducting an entirely virtual, instructor-led, synchronous Lean Six Sigma (LSS) Green Belt Training and Certification Program. In the 8-day interactive training portion of this program, you will learn to increase efficiency and effectiveness of federal processes by investigating root causes of complex challenges and utilizing techniques in qualitative and quantitative data collection and analysis. Should you choose to become Lean Six Sigma Green Belt certified, in addition to the 8 days of training, you will complete a project at your home agency. Your new skills will be applied to your Lean Six Sigma certification project with support from a coach. Upon approval by the Process & Performance Improvement Program at each project tollgate phase, you will be eligible for certification as a Lean Six Sigma Green Belt.
You can expect to leave this course with new Lean Six Sigma tools and techniques that can be used to increase the efficiency and effectiveness of processes at your home agency. Should you complete a Lean Six Sigma certification project, you will have demonstrated the ability to execute projects that improve work processes, gain efficiencies, and enhance your agency’s effectiveness.
We welcome anyone with an interest in gaining new knowledge and skills in continuous process improvement to this course.
There are no prerequisites for this course. However, you may find it beneficial to have past exposure to technical fields such as engineering, industrial/organizational psychology, business, and statistics as well as an awareness of common agency functions such as HR, finance, procurement, and/or operations.
This training takes place in two 4-day sessions (total of 8 days). Should you decide to pursue your Lean Six Sigma Green Belt certification, your project work will take place within 6 months following the end date of your course.We will use Zoom for Government for audio and screensharing and Mural as a collaborative, online workspace. You do not need to create accounts or download any programs to access these tools. More information will be shared prior to the course.Please contact Megan Huss and the Process & Performance Improvement Program at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions about our open-enrollment trainings, customized solutions, and project-based learning opportunities.
