With Lean Six Sigma Green Belt certification, you will be prepared to support organizational change through project management, communication, and technical process improvement. After earning your Six Sigma Green Belt certification from JMU, you will be able to quantify deliverables to an organization in terms of cost, quality, cycle time, or safety improvements.
JMU’s non-credit online Six Sigma Green Belt certificate program employs the DMAIC (“deh-MAY-ick”) framework to help you undertake systematic improvement activity in your business processes:
Define: A project begins with a problem requiring a solution. Ensure everyone involved with the project knows their role, the nature of the problem, and the project’s mission.
Measure: The work completed in the Define stage is based on identification of the problem. During the Measure stage, you must quantify/qualify the effectiveness or ineffectiveness of the current work process(es.)
Analyze: With a clearer picture provided by the Define and Measure steps, it’s time to examine and interpret the facts uncovered, and thus identify the root of your problem.
Improve: Brainstorm, and then ultimately select the most appropriate solution to your problem. Apply your solution to test its effectiveness.
Control: Maintain the project’s improvements by drafting the new solution’s control plan.

“The Lean Six Sigma Black Belt Certificate Program through JMU had excellent online learning content and reference tools paired with an instructor that lead great discussions using the curriculum while relating it to his first-hand experiences. The format of this course is well suited for those who want to further their development while continuing to work full-time. The knowledge I have gained in this course has given me a greater ability to make differences that can be seen on a company’s bottom line and is something I will take with me throughout my career.”
