Your Green Belt within reach

While improvement projects are an excellent idea, they are only really useful if they are thoroughly prepared or the right approach is used. Putting out fires on an ad hoc basis or taking action based on assumptions and suspicions is expensive, which is why companies should always avoid such a knee-jerk response. Make sure your actions really have added value. Are you looking for a widely applicable and structured approach to successfully deal with improvement projects in your organisation? Then our Six Sigma Green Belt course is just what you need.

Green Belt training: practical and widely applicable

Six Sigma applies the well-known Pareto Principle, i.e., we can tackle 80% of the problems with 20% of the basic techniques. And our Green Belt course studies that 20% in more detail. Compared with classic Green Belt training courses, this programme focuses more on practical and feasible solutions that can be applied within a wide scope.

This means that our Lean Six Sigma training deals less with the statistical side of things. You will, however, be able to carry out a reliable data analysis using a series of simple techniques (for which we provide help files in MS Excel). What’s more, you have the opportunity to develop an adapted case study during your Green Belt Training, working in a group and gaining hands-on experience with improvement projects.

The Six Sigma cycle: Define, Measure, Analyse, Improve and Control

This training course was developed for anyone working on an improvement project, whether as a team member or a Green Belt project manager. Naturally our approach is structured according to Sigma’s tried and tested Define - Measure - Analyse - Improve - Control cycle. At the end of each day, participants take a test about the material they reviewed during the day. You must score half of the points on all the tests for a pass.

Participants who successfully complete their own project during the training course receive a certificate of attendance from Allanta as well as a Six Sigma Green Belt certificate from QS Consult. That is also why participants have a full day to present their projects in addition to the five-day course.

Uw opleiding in detail


The Six Sigma Green Belt training course follows the DMAIC cycle and examines a number of related techniques. After a general introduction on day 1, we follow the four-day programme as set out below.

Project selection and DEFINE

Problem definition
Customer identification (SIPOC)
Process mapping (Flow chart / Value Stream Mapping)
Project scoping (Hidden Factory / Pareto)
Determine CTQ(s) (VOC / Kano model analysis / Strategic objectives)
Define targets (SMART targets)
Draw up a project plan (GANNT chart)

Result: Approved project charter


Establish which measurements must be conducted (Brainstorm / Ishikawa / C&E matrix)
Validate measuring systems (Operational Definition / Walk The Process / MSA)
Collect data (Sample / Stratification / Checklists)
Conduct baseline measurement (I,MR chart / Descriptive statistics / PPM / FTTY and RTY)

Result: Validated current process performance


Evaluate stability (I,MR chart)
Determine potential causes (FMEA / 5Why / Graphic analysis)
Pre-select important causes (C&E matrix / Multi-Vari chart / Paired Comparison)
Confirm important causes (Test hypothesis / Contingency table)

Result: List of important input variables


Establish link between input and CTQ (Regression and correlation)
Search for alternatives for improvement (Creativity)
Select the best solution (Comparative matrix / Results matrix)
Risk analysis of the selected solutions (FMEA)
Implement solution and trial run (Compare result with objective)

Result: Confirmed process improvement


Determine control methods (SPC (I,MR) / Pre-control / Poka-Yoke / 5S / audits
Draw up control plan (Control plan)
Adapt documentation (Quality system)
Draw up and execute training plan
Handover to process owner (Change management)
Evaluate whether the solution can be extended (Multiplication)

Result: Controlled improved process

Project discussion

Three to four weeks after the last day of training, we invite participants back so they can explain their projects. If they passed the tests and can sufficiently demonstrate that they used the Six Sigma method to tackle their project, they receive their Six Sigma Green Belt certificate.

Planning and practical arrangements

In addition to the guidance they receive during the training, participants can contact Allanta / QS Consult if they encounter problems with specific methods or techniques. We can often answer these questions by phone or e-mail. In this case, we do not charge an additional fee.

The training runs over a period of +/- 5 months. The course starts at 9 a.m. and ends at 5 p.m. This is not a residential training course. Allanta vzw can help participants find accommodation if they wish to stay overnight.

All course materials are in English. All training is in English. Projects can be individually discussed in Dutch, French or English.

The number of participants is limited to twelve to facilitate plenty of interaction and personal support. The minimum number of participants is four.


This training course was developed for anyone working on an improvement project, whether as a team member or a Green Belt project manager.


The requirements for obtaining QS Consult / Allanta Six Sigma Green Belt certification are:

  • Attend all the courses and actively participate in the courses.
  • Present a case study that you develop during the training course and defend the solutions you chose.
  • Score sufficient points on the multiple choice tests during the training. Anyone who does not score the required 50% has a second chance to score a pass during the comprehensive multiple choice test about the entire course. 
  • Successfully complete a Six Sigma Green Belt project.
