Lean and Mean: Green Belt Training Offered

Program open for those wishing to delve into Lean-Six Sigma

    “Green Belt Training:
Lean-Six Sigma & Structured Problem Solving” is an eight-day program presented over the course of four months.


    The program will start from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. May 25 at the Central New York Technology Development Organization, 445 Electronics Parkway, Suite 206


    The instructor is Alan Lane, a Lean Six Sigma master black belt with CNY TDO. Lean Six Sigma is a methodology that relies on a collaborative team effort to improve performance by systematically removing waste and reducing variation.


    This in-depth workshop combines a comprehensive classroom presentation with practical application through project exercises.


    The program will cover the basic concepts of Lean Six Sigma and demonstrate the tools and methodology necessary to successfully apply them within the define, measure, analyze, improve and control process improvement framework.


    Participants are encouraged to complete a project focused on their business while participating in the classroom experience and applying learned skills.


    Participants will gain an understanding of and experience applying tools within the DMAIC framework. The methodical identification, collection and analysis of data lead to decisions that drive meaningful corrective actions, achieving significant return on investment, according to CNY TDO. The green belt will be able to support black belt projects and lead most continuous improvement projects.


    Quality managers and engineers, supervisors, managers or anyone having the responsibility of solving problems in an organization are encouraged to attend.


    The cost is $2,200.


    For information and registration, contact Lane at or call 315-425-5144.


    The CNY TDO is a nonprofit consulting and training organization supporting manufacturing and technology businesses.
